Buhari mourns Oba Samuel Odulana

22 January 2016, 21:37

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the people of Ibadan and the government of Oyo State on the passing of the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Samuel Odulana.

The President, who also extended heartfelt condolences to the family of the late monarch, described the highly-revered traditional ruler as a patriot, promoter of peace, unity and champion of the wellbeing of his subjects.

He noted that the passage of Odulana was a great loss not only to the people of Ibadan, but also the entire country as the rich and wise counsel of the late royal father will be missed.

“Nigeria needs the wisdom of such senior citizens and their wealth of experience and moral standards, especially at a time like this that we want to change the orientation and ethical values of our people to place higher priority on hard work, discipline, honesty, accountability and transparency,” said Buhari.

He enjoined all those who mourn the late Odulana to take solace in the fact that he lived well and left behind remarkable imprints for his successor and admirers to emulate.

President Buhari also prayed The Almighty to grant the soul of the late Olubadan a peaceful rest.

Olubadan died in his sleep on Tuesday. He was 101.
