Kabba-Owe Land Corronates Obadofin Friday
Arrangements have been concluded for the official coronation ceremony of the new Obadofin of Kabba and Owe land in Kogi state Oba Micheal Oladele Yusuf on Friday.
This was contained in a press statement signed by the publicity secretaries of the Coronation central planing committee Messrs Coleman Ajiboye and Kayode Lawal and made available to newsmen.
The traditional ruler who in the past few days has been performing necessary traditional rites associated with the Obadofin stool would also be treated to a grand reception planned in his honour by the well meaning sons and daughters of Kabba.
At the grand reception scheduled to hold at the Saint this morning the Obadofin would receive blessing from eminent religious leaders including the Arch Bishop of Abuja Catholic Church John Cardinal Onaiyekan.
The Obadofin was in August appointed by the Kogi State governor Captain Idris Ichalla Wada following the acceptance of the recommendation of the appointing authority and other stakeholders in the Kabba-Owe tradition.
He has since been presented with the Staff of office by Governor Wada at a colourful ceremony held in Lokoja the Kogi State Capital.
Senator Smart Afolabi Adeyemi representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the Senate and Honourable Tajudeen Yusuf representing Kabba-Bunu-Ijumu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives would lead the national and state lawmakers as well as notable politicians in the country to the epoch-making coronation ceremony.
