The 77th Birthday of Egba’s Number One Citizen, Oba Michael Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, CFR, Okukenu IV, comes up on Monday, 14th of September, 2020.
Most Egbas and many other people in the world over, would be expecting the usual Birthday Celebration in the format of up to one week event.
However, the Apex Egba Monarch, has said that the current health situation occasioned by Covid19, calls for sober reflection and moderation in any such activity as 77th Birthday Anniversary.
Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, CFR, Okukenu IV, appreciates all Egba Traditional Obas, Chiefs, and Patriots at home and in diaspora, who have been calling for the programme of events to note that his 77th Birthday Anniversary would be low-keyed in accordance to the Covid19 protocols.
The Egba Paramount Ruler therefore enjoins all his family members and well wishers to remember him and the Egba Nation, before, during, and after the 14th of September, 2020, in their fervent prayers.
Oba Adedotun Gbadebo however, enjoins all Egba Compatriots and their friends to look forward to his 15th Coronation Anniversary, which kicks off from November 14, 2020, and will feature among other events, conferments of Chieftaincy Titles for deserving Egba Compatriots and non Egbas who could had contributed to the socio-economic well being of Egbaland and humanity in general.
