Ogun Muslims hail Gov Abiodun on new Chieftaincy law





The newly assented Ogun Chieftaincy Bill by Gov Dapo Abiodun has been described as a milestone development that will abate the shrouded doctrine associated with the ascension to the throne of Kingship and Chieftaincy, as well as the performance of burial rites upon the demise of traditional rulers and Chiefs.

The Ogun State Muslim Council OMC Secretary-General, Alhaji Kamaldeen Akintunde made this submission in a statement lauding the actions of both the legislature and the executive led by Gov Dapo Abiodun.

According to the Secretary-General, the new Chieftaincy law known as “Obas, Chiefs, Council of Obas and Traditional Council Làw of Ogun State, Bill 2021” will give room for faith inclined individuals who may be so willing to serve their towns and communities through traditional systems and institutions to express interests. The Chiefs Law will also allow for family involvement in the inter/burial process of traditional leaders upon their demise.

The new Chieftaincy law is a product of a long standing bill, since 2020, initiated and sponsored by the Ijebu monarch, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona, (then the Chairman of Ogun Council of Obas), seeking a paradigm shift in the installation and inter process of traditional rulers.
