Imasayi Coronates New Monarch in Grand Style


Residents of imasayi in Yewa North Local Government of Ogun State on Saturday celebrated the new Olu of imasayi  HRM Oba Kuoye luqman Adeleke on his first coronation anniversary.

The coronation ceremony which took place in Imasayi witnessed the presence of royal fathers and government functionaries- the Deputy Governor of the state, Chief Mrs Noimot Salako- Oyedele, and the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr Afolabi  Afuwape.

Recall, the installation of Kuoye was trailed by protest by some aggrieved residents of the community in Yewa North Local Government of Ogun State who rejected him as king, alleging that he wasn't a member of the ruling house.

The protest came barely two months after the State Government presented the staff of office and instrument of appointment to Kuoye.

But to a great surprise, residents, family, friends and well wishers in their large number and in colorful attires, troop to the venue of the event to celebrate with the Mornach. 

Kuoye, during the ceremony, disclosed that large percentage of community members who rejected his installation were amongst the attendees.

The Monarch who was elated described the occasion as the beginning of new dawn in the history of Yewa-North Local Government, adding that his oppositions are already witnessing the transformation too.

He said "People who have been visiting me since I ascended the throne would have observed the transformation which began from the palace. I will not relent in my efforts to bring about needed transformation by working assiduously to rewrite the story of Imasayi and reposition it enviably."

He called on the indigenous people of the town to wake up to the reality that they have the responsibility of working with the leadership of Imasayi to get desirable results.

"This is the time to all get up to work in unity and come together irrespective of our religious, political ethnic affiliation to build the Imasayi of our dreams. 

Kuoye equally assured on youths in the community, whom he said were instrumental to his ascension of equitable and fair leadership devoid of bias.
