Jegede extols late Olowo’s virtues

By Jimoh Ahmed
The late Olowo, Oba Folagbade Olateru Olagbegi III has been described as a distinguished member of the Body of Benchers, a legal scholar, teacher and administrator who played a great role in ensuring high standard for new intakes into the legal profession.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flag bearer in the 2016 Governorship Election in Ondo State, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, made this statement during his condolence visit to the family of the late monarch and the people of Owo at the Olowo’s palace.

Jegede said the late monarch impacted legal knowledge with uncommon simplicity, saying he did a lot in fashioning an enduring and seamless legal transition of trained lawyers into the profession.

He said he had the privilege to watch the late Olowo at a very close range, saying he was an extraordinary gift to the legal profession, Owo kingdom and Nigeria as a whole.

He said as the chairman of the state Council of Obas, Oba Olateru-Olagbegi directed the affairs of the council well and therefore he will be greatly missed for his humility and carriage of his functions and duties at various times.

Jegede was accompanied on the visit by top PDP bigwigs in the state and the local government including Mr. Sadiq Obanoyen who contested for the Owo/Ose Federal Constituency seat in the Lower Chamber of the National Assembly.
