Iperu Agog As Adebutu Becomes Seriki Of Gov. Abiodun's Town

3

Former Member of House of Representatives, Hon. Ladi Adebutu has been installed as the Seriki of Iperuland on Thursday. The installation, which was performed by Oba Adeleke Idowu Basibo, the Alaperu of Iperuland after the Moperes of the town had done the traditional rites. Speaking with newsmen at the Palace, Hon. Adebutu said the Seriki position, which had it fair share of controversies, spanning almost 40 years is being resolved amicably with his installation. "The Seriki of Iperuland is a gazetted office, it's a kingmaker position. But, unfortunately there is a misconception that it is a Muslim Chieftaincy title. It is not but by name it sounds like that. It is a gazetted Chieftaincy position. "Infact, it is a second ranking position in the Mopere institution. Balogun is their number one position, while the Seriki is the second position. "We are lucky because this is nearly 40 years conflict that is being resolved now and we thank God the community is coming to a peace resolution of this. "For 40 years or thereabout now, the then Balogun passed on and a succession battled ensued. A lot of conflicts emerged from that succession battle and that ended up tearing up the Mopere institution apart. "The Mopere breaking up spilled over to alot of traditional institution as well. It spilled over into the Muslim community, and to the festivals. "It affected the fabric of the town but to the glory of God, they now have the first opportunity where all the various Mopere now have a unification and they agreed that they will have one Seriki, which happens to be me. "It is therefore my obligation to hold all these institutions together so that we can have peace and prosperity in the community", he added. Dignitaries that attended the installation includes, Senator Ademola Adeleke of Osun State, Chief Derin Adebiyi factional State Chairman of APC in Ogun State, Hon. Sikirulai Ogundele, PDP state Chairman, Barr. Taiwo Shote (Pepe), Mr. Rasheed Buruji Kashamu (Senator Buruji’s first son) and Obas from Remo traditional Council amongst others.
