The leader of the delegation, Regional Sales Manager, Lagos 2, Mr. Dele Adeyemi eulogised Oba Gbadebo as a man of peace, a great leader of his people and an enabler of progress whose reign has impacted many positive developments on sons and daughters of Egbaland at home and in the Diaspora, as well as residents in the whole of Egba nation.
He also described the royal father as an accomplished man of many parts whose enviable footprints in the public service, corporate sphere and the traditional institution are worthy of emulation.
