On separate visits to two notable traditional rulers in Ogun State, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu arrived.

In Abeokuta, the state capital, the President will meet with Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, the Alake of Egba Land, and with the Awujale of Ijebu Land in Ijebu-Ode.

At precisely 10:18 a.m., the President’s helicopter touched down at the Dipo Dina International Stadium in Ijebu Ode. He was accompanied by the President’s Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, as well as the National Security Advisor, Nuhu Ribadu, and the Special Adviser on Special Duties, Communication, and Strategy, Dele Alake.

Olusegun Osoba, a former governor of the State, and Dapo Abiodun, the current governor of the State, were among those there to greet the President.

The president last visited the state in January of this year, when his presidential campaign path swept through it, according to 9jaknow. As the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s presidential flag bearer at the time, he paid visits to the four paramount monarchs of the state.

Along with the Alake and the Awujale, Tinubu paid visits to the Akarigbo of Remo-Land, Oba Adewale Ajayi, and the Paramount Ruler of Yewaland, Kehinde Olugbenle, in their palaces in Shagamu and Ilaro, respectively, during the electioneering period.

In what some have referred to as a “appreciation visit” to the traditional rulers, the President is only scheduled to pay visits to two of the four notable traditional rulers in Ogun State this time.
