Adeleke appoints former commissioner as monarch

THE governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, today, gave his approval to Dr. Adebayo Faforiji’s appointment as the new Alamuye of Amuye Faforiji in the state’s Atakunmosa East Local Government Area.

Faforiji worked as the state’s commissioner for construction between 2003 to 2010 under Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola.

The Director of Chieftaincy, Basiru Oladipupo, in a letter on behalf of the Coordinating Director of the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Femi Ogundun, obtained in Osogbo on Friday, explained that the approval was made in accordance with Section 20, sub-section (1) of the Chief’s Law (cap.25) Laws of the Osun State.

The government enjoined the monarch to work with other royal fathers in order to maintain peace and advance the state.

“The stool of Amuye Faforiji became vacant on 20th June 2010 and after the process, the kingmakers of the town unanimously selected Prince Adebayo Faforiji as the Alamuye elect of Amuye Faforiji on 6th September 2013.

“Unfortunately, previous administrations refused to confirm his appointment as the monarch of the town until His Excellency, Senator Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke, did the needful in response to the yearning of the people of Amuye Faforiji,” the statement read.
