“You have always been an essential part of Ido-Osun’s development. Now you are gone, and I pray for your departed soul. You have accomplished many good things in life,” Odeyemi stated. “You worked hard and always followed the path of honesty. Your compassion and your stance on vital humanitarian issues were unparalleled.”

Odeyemi also prayed for God to grant the family, the people of Ido-Osun, and the Osun State government the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. He urged the state government to immortalize Oba Adedapo, noting that his contributions would be greatly missed across all facets of life.

Oba Adedapo, a close ally of the immediate past Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade, served as the Secretary General of the Council of Yoruba Obas during his lifetime.
