I am delighted to use this medium to congratulate Your Majesty on your birthday, the first to be celebrated as you ascend the throne of your ancestors.
Your emergence as Oniru of Iruland is not a surprise as you have always been a public spirited, altruistic, discerning, self respecting, well-groomed and properly oriented community leader with enviable pedigree.
Without doubt, your wide and versed knowledge, cognate exposure and personal achievements shall be brought to bear in the discharge of your functions as the traditional leader of the already blessed Iruland and make it greater.
With your bespoke leadership skills and natural endowments, your kingdom is on a refreshed and reinvigorated journey to unprecedented growth and grounding breaking progress.
My prayer to God is to grant you good health, long life and divine wisdom in leading your people as you join the golden age.
Ki ade pe lori,
Ki bata pe lese,
Ki irukere ma posi,
Ki eshin Oba oje oko pe o!
