Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Senator Teslim Kolawole Folarin, have declared that the state has lost another exemplary monarch.



The duo made this assertion while reacting to the passage of the Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Abdulganiyu Adekunle Salau.

Naijacrawl recalls that the monarch joined his ancestors in the early hours of Sunday at the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan.

In their separate reactions, Makinde and Folarin lamented that the state had lost another exemplary monarch.

He described the death as shocking, painful, and a huge loss to the state.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa, Makinde said that the monarch was an exemplary leader and a true believer in the progress and development of the state.

The governor, in the statement made available to the Naijacrawl, said that he had been informed of the passage of the monarch.

Makinde said, “I have been informed of the passage of the Aseyin of Iseyinland, His Royal Majesty, Oba Abdulganiyu Adekunle Salau."
His death is another great loss among the ranks of leading traditional rulers in our dear state. This death is painful and shocking, but we can only submit to the will of the Almighty God, who alone has power over life and death.
“Again, Oyo State has lost an exemplary royal father and a true believer in the progress and development of Oyo State."
In his own reaction, Folarin said that he received the news of the death of the monarch with a rude shock.
Folarin, who represents Oyo central senatorial district, said that the death of the monarch is another loss to the entire Yoruba land.
The lawmaker, in a statement made available to Naijacrawl Sunday evening, said, “I received the news of His Royal Majesty Oba (Dr.) Abdulganiy Salawudeen Adekunle Oloogunebi’s death with rude shock, but with total submission to the will of Almighty Allah”.
“The late Ajinese was a great father to many of us. On many occasions, he invited me to his palace for father-to-son discussions and also on issues bothering the development of Oke-Ogun zone and Oyo State.
“The first-class monarch’s death is another great loss to Yorubaland." The late Ajinese’s indelible fatherly roles in Oke-Ogun and Oyo State would be sorely missed. "
