Saka Matemilola has been appointed as the new Olowu of Owu in the Abeokuta North Local Government Area of the state.
The Olowu of Owu stool became vacant following the demise of Oba Adegboyega Dosunmu in December 2021.
Matemilola was announced as the 14th Olowu of Owu at the State Executive Committee meeting held on Monday evening, according to a statement by the governor’s spokesperson, Kunle Somorin, on Wednesday.
Somorin added that the government approved appointments of other new traditional rulers to fill the vacant stools in the state.
He added “the state government equally announced the approval of some persons into vacant chieftaincy positions, while approval was also granted for the change of a chieftaincy title.
“The decision for the approvals was taken during the State Executive Committee meeting held on Monday evening.”
Somorin further said that approvals for the chieftaincy declaration of the Onikooko of Kooko Ebiye in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area and the Olu of Ajura in Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state, were also granted by the state executive council.
