The Osun State government has announced the appointment of Prince Adegboyega Famodun as the new Owa of Igbajo in Boluwaduro local government area of the State.
This was contained in a statement made available to journalists in Osogbo by the State’s Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, after Monday’s State Executive Council (SEC) meeting.
Until his appointment as Owa-Elect, Famodun was the Osun State chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Recall that the stool of Owa of Igbajo became vacant following the death of Oba Olufemi Fasade on December 23, 2020.
The statement said that Prince Famodun was unanimously selected as the sole candidate of the Owa Oke-Ode Ruling House in a meeting held on November 11, 2022.
The statement added that the appointment takes immediate effect.
