In a landmark event, Chief Olajoju Abraham Fadairo is poised to assume the prestigious title of Asiwaju of Ifo land in Ogun State, succeeding the late Chief Sule Onabiyi.
The installation ceremony, slated for January 27, 2024, will witness the presence of distinguished guests, including President Olusegun Obasanjo, at the palace of the Olu of Ifo.
The proceedings will be broadcast live by Penpushing online television.
The 81-year-old Chief Fadairo, a native of Ibogun Sowunmi, Ifo local government, will take charge of leadership responsibilities in a town experiencing rapid growth, fueled by an influx of residents attracted by its proximity to Lagos State.
Ifo town embraces religious diversity, with followers of Christianity, Islam, and traditional worship coexisting harmoniously.
Following the installation, President Obasanjo, the Balogun of Owu, and other dignitaries will be hosted by the Fiwagbayi of Egbaland at his private residence in Abeokuta.
The development marks a significant moment for Ifo, a town boasting over 5 public primary schools, 10 secondary schools, numerous private educational institutions, and two tertiary institutions.
