A frontline traditional ruler in Ekiti State, the Oore of Otun in the Moba Local Government Area, Oba Adekunle Adeagbo, has said Mrs. Bisi Fayemi, the wife of Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, is to be honoured with a traditional title in his domain in appreciation of her sterling leadership qualities and roles in human development.
Oba Adeagbo said his community, in recognition of the attributes, would on Saturday, confer the chieftaincy title of Fiwajoye of Otun Ekiti Mobaland on the governor’s wife.
The monarch said eminent personalities and traditional leaders including the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, would be in the ancient Otun community to be part of the ceremony.
The paramount ruler of Mobaland, in a statement at Otun Ekiti on Sunday, titled, ‘Erelu Bisi Fayemi to bag chieftaincy title,’ urged Nigerians to celebrate with the governor’s wife on the occasion.
He said, “The traditional title is to celebrate the unique characters, worthy of emulation, of Erelu Fayemi and in recognition of her leadership qualities and roles in the Nigerian society and at the global level.”
The traditional ruler said the exploits of the governor’s wife as a gender equality activist, philanthropist and advocate of protection of child’s rights, could never go unnoticed and uncelebrated.
