Buhari Congratulates Awujale of Ijebuland on His 60th Coronation Anniversary

President Muhammadu Buhari has rejoiced with Awujale of Ijebu Kingdom, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona, on his 60th anniversary on the throne, which makes him one of the oldest reigning monarchs in the country, following his formal coronation on April 2, 1960.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser Media and Publicity Femi Adesina  President Buhari joined indigenes of Ijebu land, government and people of Ogun State in to celebrate the milestone.

He commended the octogenarian for upholding the legendary history and tradition of his forefathers, especially the highly organized political, economic and social structures that preceded many civilisations in Africa.

“As the royal father marks 60 years on the throne, President Buhari affirms that his exposure, knowledge and charisma before ascending the position deeply impacted and expanded the influence of the domain, most remarkably among other traditional rulers and various state governments that rely on him for wise counsels.” The President affirmed.


The President said he believed the wisdom, warmth and friendliness of the monarch also translated into peace and civility in the domain.

President Buhari prayed  that the almighty God would continue to bless the Awujale of Ijebu Kingdom, and grant him more years of fruitful reign.
