The Isale Eko Descendants’ Union has congratulated the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, as he clocks the age 80.
The Chairman, Isale Eko Descendants’ Union, Adeniji Kazeem (SAN), announced the donation of medical supplies to the Iga Idungaran Community Health Centre to mark the birthday of the monarch.
The union said the significant milestone was a testament to a lifetime of service, leadership, and unwavering commitment to their beloved community.
The group noted that under Oba Akiolu’s reign, Lagos has witnessed remarkable growth and development, and the city continues to thrive as a centre of commerce, culture, and tradition.
“He has also been instrumental in securing employment opportunities for numerous Lagos indigenes within the Lagos State, Federal Government, and private organisations.
“Additionally, he has been at the forefront of the return of properties belonging to Lagos indigenes, including the iconic Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos, from the Federal Government.
“Our revered monarch has been a resolute and effective leader, ensuring peace and harmony in his domain through timely and astute guidance to his subjects and governmental bodies,” the union said.
