Osolo’s vacuum will be greatly felt- Lagos commissioner

By Monsurudeen Olowoopejo

The Lagos State Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy Affairs and Rural Development, Bolaji Robert, has expressed deep shock and sadness over the demise of the Osolo of Isolo, Oba Kabiru Agbabiaka, describing his demise as great loss to the state.

Roberts said that the monarch’s death has deprived Lagos of a conflict resolution expert who contributed to sustaining peace across the state.

The Commissioner, who made this disclosure during his condolence visit to the late Oba’s palace in Isolo, Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area, noted that the Lagos State Council of Obas and Chiefs will miss the highly respected monarch.

According to him, “the late Oba Kabiru Alani Agbabiaka, who until his death was the Secretary of the Lagos State Council of Obas and Chiefs served as a great pillar of support to the Council.

“He also played prominent role as a member of the Conflict Resolution Committee as well as contributed immensely to the development of his kingdom and by extension to Lagos State, surely this great vacuum will be greatly felt by all”.

While commiserating with the family, the Lagos State Council of Obas and Chiefs and the good people of Isolo Kingdom over the monarch’s exit, prayed God grants him eternal rest.

Robert, however, advised the good people of Isolo and its environs to continue to live in peace and not allow unhealthy rancor put an end to the communal peace that has always been enjoyed by all in the kingdom.

The Commissioner expressed the continuous support of the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to the traditional Institution as they remain the rallying point in the promotion of culture, maintaining communal peace and fostering social development as well as serving as a veritable vehicle for the dissemination of policies and programmes of our administration.
