Virtually all members of Lagos House of Assembly at the Thursday, May 24, 2018, plenary session eulogized Oba Rilwan Babatunde Osuolale Akiolu, on the occasion of his 15th coronation anniversary. Starting from Hon. Lanre Ogunyemi (Ojo 1) who first raised the issue under matter of public importance, members took turn to shower encomiums on the respected monarch.
Many of them said the reign of the monarch has brought peace and prosperity to Lagos as a city and state.
The Speaker, Rt Hon Mudashiru Obasa who rounded off members comments on the paramount king said Oba Akiolu does not only support their actions and policies in government but also cautions and calls them to order whenever he thinks they are doing something wrong.
He prayed for the long reign and good health of the king and instructed the Clerk of the House to send a congratulatory letter to Oba Akiolu on behalf of the Assembly.
Among the dignitaries at the plenary session was another paramount ruler, Oba Adekunle Aromolaran, the Owa Obokun of Ijeshaland, who with his wives and Chiefs came on a courtesy visit to the House.
