Gbadegesin Ogunoye Installed As Olowo Of Owo In Ondo by OndoUpdates(f): 8:50pm On Aug 23, 2019
The new Olowo of Owo in Ondo state, Prince Gbadegesin Ogunoye, was on Friday installed as the 33rd Owo monarch.

The traditional rites started very early and were witnessed by residents of the town and other guests.


Speaking to reporters, the Ojumu of Owo, Chief Olanrewaju Famakinwa, said that the rites became necessary as being laid down by customs and culture of the ancient town.

Famakinwa said that the monarch chose sword of peace in the course of the rite.

He said: “Oba Ogunoye who is being installed today chose a sword which signifies peace.

“Traditionally, before Olowo is installed, he will have to choose a sword at Oke Mapo and it is believed that whatever one he chooses will tell how his reign will be.

“Coincidentally, he chose the same sword chosen by his father more than 30 years ago and the sword represents sword.”

Also, the Agbaomolowo of Owo, Chief Idowu Oludaye, said the day was a good one for the ancient town because there was a new monarch.

He described the new Olowo as a man of honour, patience and humility, hoping his reign would bring peace, prosperity and development to the town.

Oludaye urged Oba Ogunoye to accommodate all and sundry, advising the residents of the town to support him.

He said there will be coronation of the new Olowo in the next 17 days.

Also the Adanigbo Onula, Chief Kunle Ijalana, said the day was spectacular because it was another success recorded in the town.

Ijalana prayed that the new monarch would reign longer than those before him.

Oba Ogunoye was selected as Olowo after getting 14 votes out of 15 on July 12 after demise of late Oba Victor Olateru- Olagbegi who died on April 18, 2019, aged 77.

The legal practitioner voluntarily resigned as Permanent Secretary in the state civil service on Thursday to ascend the throne of his ancestors.

It's called tradition and you act as if it's just some random title invented in thin air. This is one of the most important pre-colonial kingdoms in Nigeria producing some of the best arts.

Owo Imade, the land of peace. There are a lot know about this ancient town. Owo has the biggest Palace in Africa, not just Nigeria, but in Africa. You can search your Google to be sure of this. Action Group, the first political party in Western Nigeria was launched in this town. Sir Olateru Olagbegi, one of the king who has ruled the town, was the first king to be a minister and a king in Nigeria. He was also the last president of western house of Obas in the 60s. He has more than 150 children and more than 140 of them are university graduates. He was also knighted by the Queen of England in 1959. Many writers has written about this legendary King, who was dethroned and returned to his throne after 25years, alas, he died on the throne and his son succeeded him. What a great man. Oba Adekola Ogunoye, the father of the incoming Olowo was also known for being peaceful during his reign as Olowo, I'm sure that goodwill will follow his son, the new Olowo too. Congratulations to the good people of Owo. I hope to visit that Palace soon.
