The Okanlomo of Ibadan, Senator Rilwan Adesoji Akanbi, has felicitated with Oba Gbolahan Lawal who was flamboyantly installed, crowned yesterday, as the 15th Oniru of Iru land in Lagos.
The front line Senator in his message to the newly crowned Oba, wishes the monarch long life and many glorious years on the throne.

The Okanlomo of Ibadan, Sen. Rilwan Adesoji Akanbi said that, “good things usually find a way of reaching good people. I felicitate and rejoice with you on this epoch-making occasion.” He also prayed that the people of Lagos and beyond will enjoy the reign of the new Oba.

The distinguished Senator who served as a lawmaker representing Oyo South senatorial district for four years in the last Senate, has in the last years, continued to dedicate his life to philanthropy and restoration of family and societal values. 

And most recent of his philanthropic gestures are, the Feed-A-Soul programme through his foundation called Rilwan Adesoji Akanbi Foundation based in Ibadan; donation of Covid-19 palliatives to individuals, groups and institutions; provision of free-interest loans to the associations and groups amongst others.

The new Monarch, the Senator added, is bringing with him to the throne, the experience and wealth of over 21 years that he has used to serve the people of Lagos, in the cabinet of the last, past, four Governors of Lagos, beginning with ex Governor Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's administration. And prior to ascending the throne of his fathers, he was the Commissioner in the Ministry of Housing and Agriculture, in the incumbent Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s cabinet.
