The Olobaagun of Obaagun, Oba Jimoh Adebisi Okunade, Kayode 11, had installed one of the indigenes of the community and an Abuja based legal practitioner, Barrister Dauda Ajadosu as the new Eesa of Obaagun.

By traditional hierarchy, he becomes the next in command to the Olobaagun as well as the head of the Kingmakers in the ancient town.

Performing the installation in his palace, Oba Okunade noted that Barrister Ajadosu, who hails from Eesa Oniayowo compound of the town, emerged the new traditional chief after thorough investigation into his past and present antecedents, coupled with his track records of always being interested in anything developmental for the town.

It was also gathered that his appointment and subsequent installation followed the demise of the immediate past High Chief Eesa, Olawuyi Olagunju from Mamoje’s compound who died recently.

In his remarks at the brief installation event, the monarch called on the people of the community to support the new chief just as he expressed confidence in his ability to fast track socio economic development to the ancient community using his education, exposure and wealth of experiences in and outside his professional background as a legal practitioner of note in Abuja where he is currently based .

Oba Okunade maintained that the community is desirous of having young minds as Chiefs in the town, just like the new Eesa, stressing that such will be a catalyst to fast tracking growth and development for the ancient town.

The monarch in his royal blessings prayed to God to assist the new Eesa with the necessary knowledge, wisdom and understanding, coupled with good health and long life to carry out his new assignments .

In his remarks, the new High Chief, Dauda Ajadosu thanked the Olobaagun and the entire members of Olobaagun in Council for the honour and privilege which he described as a call to serve the people of Obaagun land and humanity as a whole.

Describing it also as a further challenge for him to do more, High Chief Ajadosu pledged his resolve and commitment to bring his wealth of experience in and outside his legal profession to bear in the course of carrying out his new assignments.

Chief Ajadosu used the opportunity to call on the elders and youths of the town to make the growth and development of Obaagun their priority at home and Diaspora.

Born over four decades ago, the new High Chief is the principal partner, Dauda Ajadosu and Co, a legal firm based in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, with a branch office in Osogbo, Osun State capital.
