The Aromokola Ruling House of Abalabi town has presented a unanimous candidate for the vacant stool of Abalabi town in Ewekoro Local Government of Ogun state in the South Western part of Nigeria.
A letter signed by one Pa Timothy Oyeyemi Bolajoko, for the Aromokala Ruling Family and made available to our news desk stated that, after the meeting held on Sunday September 16, 2018 at no. 2 Adetoro Famuyiwa street, Ikotun, Lagos unanimously resolved to present Prince Babatunde Akinwunmi Badejoko as the sole candidate for the vacant throne of Abalabi Kingdom.
They said Aromokala descendant Ruling House remained the next in succession to the throne of Abalabi Kingdom, hence the family emphatically dissociated themselves from one Taofik Biobaku Bakare who they claimed was neither related to them biologically or proxy.
The used the opportunity to notify the government and the general public that Taofik Biobaku Bakari Oshunrinade who has been parading himself as a member of the Aromokala descendant Family and the Oba of Abalabi Kingdom was not in any way related to them and has not been chosen as the oba of the kingdom.
Another letter presented by the family Lawyers, Tademalaw Chambers, located at Olosha, Mushin, Lagos also corroborated their claims. The letter reads, “We act for the Elders-in- Council of the Abalabi Community, Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun state. We humbly refer to our earlier letter to the government in respect of the above subject matter, especially the one dated 2nd July 2018.
The family who lauded the Governor of the state, Prince Dapo Abiodun for his dexterous leadership, pleaded with him not to allow anyone inveigle him to do what is not noble and bring unrest and disorderliness to the state. They also used the Platform to advise the Commissioner for Local and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Afolabi Afuwape to steer clear of any actions or steps that could bungle the smooth running of the Abiodun’s Administration, because according to them, they were aware of the moves of some elements who had been working nefariously and dropping his name in their despicable activities.
