The 75 Ogun State coronet monarchs re-instated last week by the State High Court has described judiciary as the last hope of the masses.
The monarchs have been at the loggerheads with the Ogun state government over what they described as their wrongful removal.
The embattled Obas were installed by governor Ibikunle Amosun at the twilight of his administration, but the decision was up-turned by Governor Dapo Abiodun on assumption of office.
The state government’s action followed the report of a committee constituted by the state government and chaired by the Paramount ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle.
The Obas applauded Governor Dapo Abiodun for what they described as his non-interference in the judiciary process in the state, pledging their unalloyed loyalty to Governor Abiodun.
General Secretary of the Obas, Oba Tanimowo Folarin, Olu of Ipebi, Ijebu-Mushin pleaded with the governor to shun any negative comments about them.
While commending Abiodun for the completion of abandoned projects by his predecessor, the group said: ” On behalf of the G75 Obas in Ogun State, we want to appreciate His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun MFR for giving the judiciary the freehand during our litigation period.
“The entire G75 Obas also want to pledge our loyalty and support for the administration of His Excellency, we want to let His Excellency be aware we are fully prepared and we are ready to serve his Excellency’s administration and to work with him.
“We are giving him our unflinching support and we are ready to work with him. His Excellency should shun any negative news about us, we are traditional rulers in our various communities in Ogun State and His Excellency is still our recognized number one citizen, we don’t recognize any other person in Ogun State except him.
“We are glad about the project His Excellency has embarked upon since the inception of his government, most especially the completion of the project he met on ground, there are many projects in Ogun State that have not been completed, we are really happy that His Excellency has started working and completed some and up till present he is still working on them, we are very much happy with His Excellency.
“Before now, we have been supporting this administration in our localities, you will discover that we have played a good role, even before now we have been playing a good role, in terms of administering our various domain. Pledging our loyalty is just to assure His Excellency that what we have been doing we will continue to do more.”, they stated.
