It was pleasant moments of praise in the presence of the Almighty as sons and daughters of Owo Kingdom converged on St Andrews Cathedral, Imola , Owo, for the thanksgiving service of the new Olowo of Owo, Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin Ogunoye.

Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, with top officials of his government, who are indigenes of Owo, flanked Oba Ogunoye to demonstrate their happiness on the faithfulness of God towards them.

In his sermon, the Bishop of Owo Diocese, Anglican Communion, Rt. Revd. Dr. Stephen Ayodeji Fagbemi, rejoiced with the people on the successful enthronement of the new Olowo of Owo for the ancient town .

The Bishop described the peaceful emergence of the Olowo as a remarkable departure from the past characterized by strife and acrimony which has now broken into a new dawn.

Bishop Fagbemi urged the royal father to continually work for the sustenance of the peace, unity and love which greeted his choice as the king of the town.

“Kabiyesi you must separate genuine tradition and culture of the people from idolatry.

“Your people love you and you must sustain the love by ensuring that nothing interrupts the current peace in Owo,” he said.
