According to a statement by the Special Assistant (Media) to the Deputy Governor, Odunayo Ogunmola, the throne became vacant following the demise of the last Onijesa, Oba Samuel Agboola Osatuyi, who joined his ancestors on 15th October, 2018 after reigning for 49 years.

Congratulating Oba Daramola on the ascension of the throne of his forefathers, Dr. Fayemi appealed to the people of the town to allow the spirit of oneness and sincerity of purpose reflect in their support and cooperation with the new king.
The Governor who charged the monarch to immediately commence reconciliation process with the contestants who lost in the kingship race also admonished indigenes at home and in the Diaspora to come home and contribute their quota to the development of their home town.
He said: “I am sure that with your background and experience, it would not be difficult for you to foster cooperation and unity among your people to elevate your community to an enviable status. You need the support of everybody for a peaceful reign.
“This is the more reason you should extend hands of fellowship to those who contested the throne with you. I am, therefore, imploring you to broker peace within the community in the shortest possible time.”
Speaking after receiving the sceptre of office, Oba Daramola described his ascension as a sacred duty to provide quality leadership for his subjects and galvanise all and sundry to take the town to greater heights.
