Lagos Assembly majority leader conferred with chieftaincy title


The Majority Leader of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Noheem Adams, has been conferred with the chieftaincy title of Otun-Oba of Ogombo Kingdom in Eti-Osa Local Council of Lagos State.

Adams’ conferment was to commemorate the king’s first coronation anniversary celebration.

Commending the monarch, Oba Abiodun Ogunbo, for the kind gesture, Adams described him as a kind-hearted leader who prides the positive development of his domain quite high, adding that the Oba’s good deeds before now have paid off greatly.

According to the legislator, “I never saw this title coming but leaders of my lineage, Dada Omolara Ruling House, deemed it fit for me to be the next Otun-Oba of Ogombo land.”

He said that the traditional ruler, before being crowned king of Ogombo, had been instrumental towards ensuring and facilitating rapid development in the community.

“He has done a lot to give Ogombo community a facelift before his coronation. He used his fund to light up the place with solar-powered street lights, which improved nightlife in the area.

“Also, estate and schools now sprouting fast around the community was made possible by his public-spirited nature.

“Personally speaking, he has been my benefactor while growing up. He has been a father figure to me all through my school days till when I started working at the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS).

“He did not stop there. At the time I was busy with the electioneering campaign to become a lawmaker, he was with me all the way, and God has also been faithful to him in his new status having been crowned a king last year,” he said.

He however noted that the chieftaincy title conferred on him was a call to service and would be better if a new road to Ogombo is constructed in addition to several other good things on the way for the community.
