Among the dignitries that attended the occasion were the Executive Chairman of Somolu Local Government, Hon. Abdul Hamed Salawu at the home of the king at Ilara town in Epe.

Other Councils’ Executive Chairmen such as Mayor Dele Oshinowo (Agboyi-Ketu), Hon. Adeniyi Saliu (Eredo), Hon. Shamsideen Adenuga (Ikosi-Ejinrin), Princess Samiat Abolanle Bada (Ikosi-Isheri) and Hon. Adedoyin Adesanya (Epe) as well as other notable politicians and administrators were there present.

The guests received a first class Royal event treatment as the new monarch made vivifying arrangements for the Royal reception to honour friends, associates and family.

As part of the activities preceding his coronation as the 55th Alara, Oba Ogunsanwo was presented to the Council of Obas on Tuesday at the Epe Council Chambers, Itamarun, in the Epe Local Government Area.
