The Kwara APC Caretaker Chairman, Hon. Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa has described the demise of the Olupo Of Ajase-Ipo, Oba Sikiru Atanda Woleola as a justifiably painful incident but a fact we must come to terms with as mortals
In a statement by his media office in ilorin, Hon. Bolarinwa, said the passage of the late monarch was a great loss not only to the people of Ajase-Ipo but the entire state as a whole.
“From my early contact with the late kabiyesi in lagos and his eventual home coming to mount the throne of his forebears, Oba Sikiru has always displayed exemplary humility, calmness and love for people.
His reign of over a decade brought peace and massive development to Ajase -Ipo. He was loved by his people for his fairness and forthrightness.
His departure is therefore a very sore point for us his admirers and all those who looked up to him.
On behalf of our party, elders and stakeholders, l extend my heartfelt condolences to the Government and people of kwara state, the kwara state traditional council, through its chairman, Emir of Ilorin, Maimartaba Zulqanaini Gambari, GCFR, the chiefs , sons and daughters of Ajase-Ipo, his friends and family for this loss.
I pray Almighty Allah to forgive his shortcomings and grant him aljanah firdaus.
