“Late Oba Adetunji was a great monarch who loved his people and worked relentlessly for the upliftment of his community, the state and the nation as a whole. His demise no doubt, is a great loss to all,” he said

The Cleric, who is also the President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), noted that the era of the deceased ushered in progress, stability and peace to Ibadan land, its environs, the state and the country.

He implored that the legacy of the good works of late Oba Adetunji must not be allowed to die in whatever form, stressing, his legacies and good memories must be kept alive for generations to come.
