A retired civil servant in Osun State, Prince Abdul-Wahab Adegboyega Oladunjoye, has been installed as the new traditional ruler of Irepodun town, Oke-Osun in Osogbo local government area of the state.

During the coronation of the new traditional ruler at Irepodun market square today, the head of kingmakers, Pa Liasu Odediran, declared that the nomination, selection, appointment and installation of Oladunjoye as the new king for Irepodun town followed the due process.

Pa Liasu Odediran added that the processes fulfilled all the necessary conditions in accordance with the tradition and custom of the people of the community.

Also, the chairman of Irepodun community, Pa Sulaimon Akande, said the new traditional ruler was acceptable to the entire people of the town and assured that the people of Irepodun town would support the reign of the new king.

Speaking shortly after the coronation ceremonies, the new king urged the state government to provide basic socio amenities for the people of the area.

Oladunjoye urged the state government to grade the road leading to the town, provide health care facilities and post more teachers to Irepodun to curb rural-urban migration.
