Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has described the passing of the 42nd Olubadan of Ibadanland, HIM Oba Dr. Moshood Lekan Balogun, Alli Okunade II, as devastating, saying the late monarch will be missed for the peace and tranquility that his reign witnessed in Ibadan.

Governor Adeleke commiserate with his Oyo state counterpart, Engr. Seyi Makinde, the Olubadan–In–Council, the people of Ibadan and the immediate family of Oba Balogun, whom he said used his revered stool to promote unity and progress of the Yoruba race.

He added that Oba Balogun was a highly respected monarch, who served the people of Ibadan with passion and honour, noting that his exit to the great beyond will leave a void for Ibadan he served for years to come.

“On behalf of the Government and the people of Osun state, I extend my heartfelt condolence to the Government of Oyo State and the people of Ibadan on the passing of the 42nd Olubadan of Ibadanland, HIM Oba Dr. Moshood Lekan Balogun, Alli Okunade II,” the Governor was quoted to have said in a condolence message.

“Oba Balogun was a great source of inspiration in impactful leadership, and his demise means we’re denied the immense benefits of the quality of his insights, wise counsels and unrestrained passion for the physical growth of Ibadanland and its people.

“It is my prayer that Eledumare comforts everyone touched by this huge loss and as Yoruba culture infers, may Oba Balogun rest well as he joins his forebears.”
