His Royal Majesty Oba (Dr) Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, CFR (Okukenu IV). The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. For the Egba Nation, a soldier-statesman is on the throne: richly bejeweled man, dressed in fragrant robes and living on the ivory palace, bringing peace, prosperity and true happiness to his people.
Kabiyesi, You are that king who finds true happiness and true happiness comes from only one thing in life: to love and be loved. As you continue to reign over us Egbaland, may you find peace, joy and fulfilment.
May you live long to wear the royal crown for long. May you put on the royal shoes for long. May you have multiple of horse tails in the palace because it is easier to have plenty of needles due to its tiny nature. May you grow old, may you have good health, and reign longer on the throne than your forefathers.
Kabiyesi, Omo erin jogun ola
Omo osi’lekun pa’lekun de
K’ade pe lori, ki bata pe lese, Ki Irukere di okinni!
Long may the king live.
Prince Dapo Abiodun, MFR
Governor, Ogun State
