Ogun Rep. Olumide Osoba mourns Olu of Kobape, Oba Olufemi Allen
The chairman house committee on sports development, Honourable Olumide Babatunde Osoba, Federal House of Representatives, representing Abẹokuta North, Obafemi/Owode and Odeda has extended heartfelt condolences to his people in Obafemi Owode local government, as well as the Royal family on the passing of the His Royal Highness Oba Olufemi Allen Taylor, the Olu of Kobape.
In a condolence message issued and personally signed by the Honourable, on Saturday in Abẹokuta, the House of representatives joined the Ogun State Council of Obas, Royal household, and the entire people of Kobape, in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area on the passage to glory of our Kabiyesi, Oba Olufemi Allen Taylor, the first Olu of Kobape.
“It is with rude shock that I received the news of the passage of one of the foremost Royal fathers in my Federal Constituency. His Royal Highness Oba Olufemi Allen Taylor, the Olu of Kobape whose passing is difficult to bear. But nobody can wrestle with the gods, let alone with the Almighty; the giver and taker of life.
“Our greatest consolation lies in the worthy, enviable and remarkable life the Royal Father lived. As a retired Assistant Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) before mounting the stool of his town, his horizon, knowledge, experience, clout, and far-reaching connection have helped in no small measure to transform Kobape. Today, the peaceful town is no longer what it was before Kabiyesi mounted the throne as Kobape’s first Alayeluwa. His footprints can be seen everywhere in the town. No doubt, I am convinced that history will be kind to Kabiyesi for the enviable and envious legacies he left behind, the lives he touched, and the unparalleled achievements his reign recorded.
“It is on this note that, I,Honourable Olumide Babatunde Osoba, on behalf of my immediate family, and the good people of Abeokuta North/ Obafemi- Owode/Odeda, Federal Constituency, of Ogun State, wish our amiable Kabiyesi eternal rest, as I commiserate with the Royal household, and the entire people of Kobape, in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area on the passage to glory of our Kabiyesi, Oba Olufemi Allen Taylor, the first Olu of Kobape, he concluded
