The former President also said the monarch’s reign brought development, peace, stability and growth to the state.

In his letter, Obasanjo said “The late Oba will, no doubt, be greatly missed by family, as well as by his numerous friends and admirers.

“While urging that you take solace in the worthy life that the late monarch lived, may I take this opportunity to extend my sincere condolence to the Royal family and the entire State, and pray that the Almighty God grant you all the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. And for you, the Crown Prince, in particular, I pray God give you the wisdom and courage you would require to build on the laudable and monumental legacies of your late father.”
