Installation-of-the-new-Oluwo-of-Iwoland-2A body of professionals from various fields who are natives of Iwo, in Iwo Local Government Area of Osun, under the aegis of The Vision Group (TVG) has assured the new Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdulRasheed Adewale Akanbi, of the readiness of its members to give him their full support in the task of taking the ancient town to a laudable height.
The group, in its letter of congratulation to the new monarch in Iwo on Wednesday, said the emergence of Oba Akanbi heralded the beginning of a new phase in the history of the ancient city which the group however regretted is in dire need of rapid development.
The letter was delivered by the conveners of the TVG Mr. Semiu Okanlawon and Dr. Rafiu Isamotu. The letter said it was gratifying that the choice of Oba Akanbi has lifted the spirit of the Iwo people home and abroad.
The group said its members home and in the Diaspora, who have come together in recent time to deliberate on the present and future of Iwo with a view to harnessing its potentials towards greatness.
“We have seen an unprecedented acceptance and reception for our monarch. We are glad the choice of the kingmakers which was endorsed by Governor Rauf Aregbesola has proved to be a great success. We are happy to note that our land has erupted in great joy and celebration with the announcement of this choice,” Okanlawon said on behalf of the group.
The group further said that the interest the choice of Oba Akanbi has generated among sons, daughters and other stakeholders in Iwo, Nigeria and across the world has shown that he is widely accepted by his people.
“For this reason, we urge you to bring your influence to bear on the town. You are noted to have contributed to the growth of the community through selfless communal works. The throne, to us, offers you greater opportunity to redirect the energy of the youths of the community towards development as well as pursue opportunities for infrastructural regeneration of Iwo. This group is ready to join hands with our monarch to achieve these objectives,” he told the Oba.
The group also urged the monarch to put in place the machinery for immediate reconciliation with all contenders to the throne just as it urged other ruling houses and contenders to join hands with the new Oluwo for the rapid development of Iwo.
