The ascension of HRM, Oba Lawal to the throne, marks the start of the next phase of the journey of Iruland into growth, progress and greater development.”
The governor also commended the kingmakers and elders of Iruland as well as the ruling houses for the peace and mutual understanding that have characterised the process that led to the installation of the new monarch. According to him, “This is a remarkable feat, worthy of commendation and emulation. ”
