“Before his transition to the eternal glory, the deposed monarch prayed for the peace of Akure kingdom. He said he did his best in defending his people while on the throne.

“The 45th Deji promulgated and ensured implementation of reasonable market price control during his reign. He also recovered and took possession of Ilula Recreation Centre from a powerful cabal back to Akure Kingdom.
