Owu agog as Olowu celebrates 5th coronation
Barely a week after the celebration of 50 years anniversary of Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona, the paramount ruler of Ijebuland, which recorded a huge turn out of who-is-who in Nigeria, the land of Owu, Ogun state is already agog in festive mood rearing to host again the movers and shakers of power in the country. The event is the fifth anniversary coronation of His Royal Majesty, Oba Dr. Olusanya Adegboyega Dosunmu, the paramount ruler of the ancient kingdom of Owu slated for 2nd to 4th July, 2010. The three-day event will be hosted by the former president and the Balogun of Owu, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the state governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel. We gathered that the President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan will grace not only grace the occasion but will also be conferred with the title - Obateru of Owu Kingdom. Other prominent Nigerians will also be in attendance. We gathered from a reliable source in the palace several hundreds of hotel rooms have been booked for various states government and other dignitaries that will grace the event. We specifically gathered that over 200 rooms have been booked for Zamfara and Imo state governments each.
