Former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday mourned the late Olowo of Owo, Oba Folagbade Olateru-Olagbegi, describing him as a patriot and astute custodian of cultural and traditional values whose immense contributions to the development of his domain would be greatly missed.
Obasanjo in a statement signed by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, said he received the death of Oba Olagbegi with deep regret, just as he commiserated with the Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and people of the state on the demise.
Obasanjo, who is the Odofin of Owo, said the late Olowo of Owo would be remembered as a patriot and an astute custodian of cultural and traditional values who gave his best while on the throne.
“His contributions to the political, social and economic life of Owo Kingdom in Ondo State will remain indelible in the hearts and minds of those who had interacted with him in these spheres.”
