Abiodun Degrades Ogun 75 Coronet Monarchs Elevated by Amosun's Administration

ABEOKUTA - Ogun state government has announced the revocation of the appointments of 75 minor chiefs who were elevated to Coronet Obas by the past Senator Ibikunle Amosun administration in the state.    

The decision was approved at the State Executive Council meeting presided over by the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun held on Thursday in Abeokuta.

THE ENCOUNTER NEWS recall that, 75 village heads were upgraded to coronet monarchs at the tail end of Senator Ibikunle Amosun led administration in the state. 

But Abiodun upon assumption of office, constituted a Chieftaincy Review Committee headed by Olu of Ilaro, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle to look into the matter.

Oba Kehinde Olugbenle-led Chieftaincy Review Committee's report faulted the process of the Chiefs elevation and recommended that they should be reversed to their village Chiefs status. 

Addressing newsmen after the meeting held at the Executive Council Chambers, Governor's Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the State Commissioner for Industry, Trade and Investment, Mrs. Kikelomo Longe, said the revocation was in consonance with the legal notice number three of 2019.

"The Council approved the revocation of the appointments of 75 minor chiefs as Coronet Obas in Legal notice number three of 2019", she said.
