Having adopted the title of Otenibotemole II, (The king who buries mischief under spread mats) and completed the seclusion rites, the new Olofin successfully ascended the vacant throne of one of the ancient settlements of the Aworis.

The ceremony, which took place at the palace was attended by dignitaries, traditional leaders, and well-wishers from across the kingdom and beyond.

While expressing his gratitude, the young monarch thanked the people of the town and visitors who graced his coronation for their unwavering support, saying their steadfast encouragement and solidarity have been instrumental in ensuring the success of the occasion.

The newly crowned ruler also sought unity and cooperation among the people of the town and its environs.
