It would be recalled that Olowolekomoh emerged as the Oba elect of the Odo-Nla kingdom last December among other five contestants to the ancient throne from the Ogbodo and Raselu ruling houses respectively contested for the royal crown.
It was a painstaking and thorough exercise that produced Olowolekomoh as revealed by Asiwaju Otunba David Ekiyoyo, the Olootu Oba Meta in a signed statement.
“Sequel to the formal announcement from the office of The Olotu Omo’ba Meta Royal family, Odo-Nla via a press conference at the community Town Hall on Thursday, 4th January 2022 it has become imperative for the office once again to issue another official statement in the public’s interest to dispel the ubiquitous rumours, lies and petty propaganda emanating from the quarters of disgruntled individuals and interlopers and none Omo’ba Meta Royal family members, coming up with so many different manipulated unrealistic stories that shall all be dealt with accordingly in the tribunal soonest.
“That, Prince Olusoga Elias Adeyemi Olowolekomoh is the most suitable and perfect Oba-Elect according to the best Odu IFA imbued on him, it is emphatic revelations and interpretations of the diviners as also acknowledged by the select committee emissaries on the mission. It is also without doubt that he possesses sterling quality leadership skills sets of sound moral character and mind complimented by high-level educational background in conjunction with his verified amiable charitable disposition and relations with different segments of the Odo-Nla Community at large.”
