The was contained in a congratulatory letter signed by the president and made available to our correspondent, on Sunday by the Chairman of the Anniversary Planning Committee, Chief Steve Akinretoye.
In the president’s letter titled, “Congratulatory message on your birthday and coronation anniversaries”, President Tinubu described the Osemawe as an extraordinary agent of positive development, noting that the Ondo Kingdom had been recording tremendous social and economic transformation since Oba Kiladejo, became the monarch in 2006.
The letter read in part, “I write, with joy, to wish Your Imperial Majesty, a happy 70th birthday and to congratulate you on your 17th Coronation Anniversary. I recall vividly what it looked like almost two decades ago, when Your Imperial Majesty was practically pulled out from your very successful private medical practice in Lagos, to mount the throne of your forefathers, as the Osemawé and Paramount Ruler of the Ondo Kingdom.
“It is evident that 17 years on, Your Imperial Majesty has filled that expansive office admirably, thus proving that the kingmakers of Ondo, obviously operating under divine inspiration, did not make a mistake in their unanimous choice of you as the next Osemawe. That was in the year 2006.
“Today, no one needs to go too far to encounter the evidence of your impactful reign over the Ondo Ekimogun people. They are visible all over the community and touch practically all aspects of human endeavour.
“May I emphasise, Kabiyesi, that the Federal Government notes the support you have lent agencies, institutions, programmes, and government officials as they relate with your community over the years”
