He told reporters: “I am very happy. It’s long overdue. But I believe that God’s time is the best. It is what we have been looking forward to do. We thank God that it has come to reality; to God be all the glory.
“I know that the tasks ahead are enormous. I believe that God will help me to shoulder the responsibilities. I will discharge my duties appropriately. The progress of Ibadanland is very dear to my heart. I will join the traditional institution for the growth and development of Ibadan.”
His wife promised to be a strong pillar of support “in the onerous task of advancing the cause the large family and Ibadanland.”
Commissioner for Information, Ogun State, Waheed Odusile, said: “I must express my happiness and joy that my friend, Damola Lajumoke, is now the Mogaji of Lajumoke Family in Alekuso, Ibadan. It is mark of honour and recognition.
“I am not surprised because since we have been friends for three to four decades, I have known him to be a leader, trustworthy, hardworking, fair-minded and generous as well. He likes to take care of the interest of everybody with him.
“I am sure that those are parts of the qualities the family saw in him before nominating him as the Mogaji of the family. His nomination was ratified by the Olubadan-in-Council.
“Now that he is the head of his large family, not only his nuclear family alone, I will advise him to continue in that spirit.
“What they saw in him that made them to pick him among all the sons of Lajumoke family to be the Mogaji, he should continue in similar manner, and improve on it.
“I pray that God will preserve his life and one day, he will become the Olubadan of Ibadanland.”
