Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, has expressed condolences on the demise of the Elemure of Emure-Ekiti, Oba Emmanuel Adebayo, who recently passed away.

The news of the renowned traditional ruler’s demise was officially communicated to the Governor over the weekend after the conclusion of all traditional rites.

In a condolence message signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Yinka Oyebode, Governor Oyebanji described the demise of Oba Adebayo as a sad development, noting that the late monarch did not exhibit any signs of illness during their last meeting.

The Governor described the late Oba Adebayo as a loving and dependable traditional ruler who cared deeply for the people and showed tremendous interest in their welfare and the development of his town.

Condoling with the family of the late monarch, the Elemure-in-Council, and the people of the town over the Oba’s passing, the Governor urged them to be consoled by the fact that the late Oba Adebayo lived an impactful life of service to the town, Ekiti State, Nigeria, and humanity, for which he would remain unforgettable.

“My condolences, and those of the Government of Ekiti State, to the immediate family of the late Kabiyesi, the Elemure-in-Council, and the good people of Emure-Ekiti on the demise of the Elemure, Oba Emmanuel Adebayo.

“The late Oba Adebayo was a great leader of his people, a lover of development, and a patriot who devoted his early life to the service of the country as a police officer, rising to the position of Commissioner of Police before ascending the throne of his forefathers. He also made his mark as a traditional ruler, whose reign attracted significant development to his town.
