Francis Adefarakanmi Agbede, the olowa of Igbara-Oke kingdom in Ifedore local government area of Ondo state, turns 65 on Friday.
Agbede, who is a private security consultant, was installed king of the nodal town on February 16, 2017, an office he has held since then.
The monarch has remained committed in his pursuit to the area’s “development and transformation through the empowerment of the citizenry politically, socially, economically, culturally and intellectually.”
In pursuant of the vision, the 13th olowa of the kingdom recently reconstituted the leadership of Igbara-Oke development council, which is the umbrella body of all associations and clubs in the town.
The new leadership of the council would build upon the solid foundation laid by the previous administration led by Olusiji Ijogun, chairman of Konga.
The council’s new leadership is also led by Ayo Adigun, a retired diplomat chairman, while Oladipo Elemo, Segun Adebayo and Gloria Elemo are members, board of trustees (BoT).
The monarch expressed confidence that their appointment “will herald a new chapter and beginning of new things in Igbara-Oke.”
Agbede is also a member of the Ondo state selection committee for the federal government’s special works programme for the 774 local government areas across Nigeria.
