President Muhammadu Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the death of Olowu of Owu Kingdom, Oba Adegboyega Dosunmu Amororo II.
The President commiserated with the government and people of Ogun State, as well as the Royal family on the passing of the monarch.
Tori had reported on Tuesday that Oba Dosunmu joined his ancestors after a brief illness.
The late Olowu was installed in 2005 following the demise of the late Oba Adisa Odeleye in 2003.
Owu is the homestead of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, where he was installed as the Balogun.
The President joined the Ogun State Council of Obas and Nigerian film producers in mourning the demise of the respected First Class traditional ruler and the producer of TV soap, the Village Headmaster, recognized as the longest-running Nigerian TV series for over 20 years.
This was disclosed in a statement by Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Wednesday.
Buhari believed that the Olowu would be fondly remembered for his love and tireless work to champion the interests and well-being of his community.
The President noted that theater practitioners in Nigeria and around the world, as well as students of drama, will remember Oba Dosunmu’s brilliant works on stage and screen, which have been preserved for the delight and education of the upcoming generation.
Buhari prayed that the memory of the late Oba will be a blessing to his family, friends and community as his soul returns to his Creator
