Elegushi of Ikate Kingdom celebrates 11 years on the throne
His Royal Majesty, Oba Saheed Demola Elegushi, Elegushi of Ikate Kingdom is celebrating his 11th year on the throne today.
He took to social media early Tuesday to share how he ascended the throne with mixed feelings. He is however grateful that through the mercy of God, and the support of his people, he can highlight his modest contribution to his kingdom and humanity.
He promised to continue to build a peaceful and prosperous city.
His Instagram post reads: “The price of greatness is responsibility” – Winston Churchill
It was with mixed feelings that this responsibility was entrusted on me, 11years ago. It was a shoe that was too big to fill but I was steeped in the rich pedigree of my ancestors who had occupied this throne before me, particularly, my great father and predecessor.
Through the mercy of God and the support of all the good people within and outside, we can easily highlight our modest contribution to this great kingdom and humanity but I am not unmindful that this is still a work in progress.
The people living or doing business here will continue to identify with us and our tireless work of building a peaceful and prosperous city for all of us.
It is 11years today we started and Insha Allah, we will be here for much longer.
To God indeed be all the Glory.”
