Joseph Olasunkanmi Tegbe, a gubernatorial aspirant in the just concluded primary election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State will like to extend our congratulations to our revered father, and His Royal Majesty, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III and by extension to all Oyo sons and daughters, both at home and in diaspora on the auspicious occasion of his 80th anniversary which came up yesterday.
“We hope that the entrance of the first class Monarch into the league of Octogenarians calls for jubilation and we pray God grants him good health, sane mind and sound body to reign on the throne of his ancestors.

We are also bound by his common values on the political arena, which form a solid foundation that has raised the bar of good governance towards the general welfare of the people of Oyo State.
“We extol the maturity and wisdom of our royal father in administering his domain, persistently fostering peace and development, and our belief is that, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III has, over the years, successfully sustained the heritage of patience, tolerance and always be at the vanguard of peace which is the hallmark of good governance.
