Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has congratulated the Oloro of Oro Kingdom Oba Abdulrafiu Olaniyi Oyelaran I on the 20th anniversary of his ascending the throne of his forebears, praying God to grant the traditional ruler good health and more rewarding years on the throne of his forefathers.
In a statement on Thursday, the Governor commended the monarch for being a good father to all his subjects, irrespective of their cleavages, and said his reign has attracted huge socioeconomic and physical development to the ancient town.
“The peace, harmony and economic growths that are the hallmarks of Oro Kingdom are to the credit of His Royal Highness who actively works for peace, unity and development of the people. It is not surprising therefore that Oro remains a force to reckon with not just in the whole of Kwara South but in the entire State,” the Governor said.
