Following the demise of Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, the National Chairman of Association of Community Pharmacist (ACPN), Pharm Adewale Oladigbolu, has described the Late Monarch as a bridge builder between  the ancient   and modern generations.

In an exclusive interview with CEOAFRICA on Tuesday, Pharm Adewale, a Prince of Oyo Kingdom of Agunloye Ruling House, expressed his gratitude to God for a life well spent and bestowed honour to the Late monarch over his numerous valuable contributions and goals achieved during his reign .

According to him, “Kabiyesi has written his name in gold as he was so passionate in promoting and preserving the esteemed cultural and traditional values of the Yoruba race”

Recall that CEOAFRICA reported on Saturday morning that the Monarch, who was 83 years old, had been ill before he died at the Afe-Babalola Multi-System Hospital, Ado-Ekiti (AMSH).

He joined his Ancestors on Friday night, five days after he was admitted for the treatment of a “chronic illness” and was buried on Saturday after Fidau and the observance of the Traditional norms.

However, the Basorun of Oyo, who is the Kingmaker, Oyomesi, is expected to take over the rulership of Oyo, pending the coronation of a new Alaafin, who is expected to emerge from the Oladigbolu ruling family.
