A gubernatorial aspirant in the 2019 governorship election in Oyo State under the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC), Engineer Olasunkanmi Joseph Tegbe, has been installed as the Mogaji of Oguntegbe’s family, Labo’s compound in Ibadan by the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji.

Tegbe was installed as Mogaji by Olubadan at Popoyemoja palace alongside other Mogaji’s and Baales.

Three other Mogajis who were installed at the Popoyemoja palace of the Olubadan on Monday are Chief Isiaka Adeniyi Ojebode who was installed as Mogaji of Ile-Iwo family in Oja Oba, Chief Sikiru Adekola Olotu who was installed as Mogaji of Adesun/Adabanija and Chief Lukman Adeleke who was installed as Mogaji of Odeku in Bode area of Ibadan.

His installation has put a rest to an insinuation from some quarters that Tegbe was not an indigene of Ibadan but hails from Edo or Delta State.

It could be recalled that Tegbe was one of the top three aspirant willing to succeed the immediate past governor of Oyo state, Late Abiola Ajimobi but was later dropped in the last minute at the APC primary held at Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamasingba, Ibadan

Speaking with journalists on Monday, at his Bodija residence shortly after his installation, Tegbe who is a Partner and Head of the Technology Advisory Services practice of KPMG Professional Services in Nigeria noted that his installation has further confirmed good things he has done and his commitment towards the development of Ibadan land and Oyo State at large.

He said, “We are just revalidating the obvious mischievous allegations that a man that has his origin in Ibadan is not from Ibadan but come from Edo or Delta.

“This is just the beginning of greater things to come to my family and Ibadan land, my plan is to consult round to know what my people lack which I’ve already been doing through my foundation by supporting Ibadan indigenes, widows and less privileged in the society.”

On his quest to serve the state, the 54-years-old fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants maintained that his interest in governance has never been diminished, saying he is very keen in ensuring that the people get good governance by actively participating

He, however, thanked the Olubadan and Olubadan-in-Council for the honour by installing him as the Mogaji of Oguntegbe’s family, Labo, Ibadan.
