The President’s congratulatory message was conveyed in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Tuesday.
The President noted that the almost five-decade reign of the monarch had witnessed peace, prosperity and development, ”with natives and settlers alike in Ogbomoso enjoying the amity that has attended the time of the respected Oba”.
He said; “Your time has brought joy and succour to the people, and may it continue to be so, as you turn 94.”
