Dear esteemed traditional chiefs,

“It is with great pleasure and pride that I extend my heartfelt congratulations to each of you on your recent elevation by the government as Part II Recognized Chieftaincy under the Chiefs Law, Cap. 28 Vol. I, Laws of Oyo State of Nigeria, 2000.

“Your dedication to upholding our cultural traditions and serving our communities has been duly recognized and honored by this prestigious elevation.

As your representative at the Oyo State House of Assembly, I am deeply gratified to witness your well-deserved recognition.

“Your leadership, wisdom, and commitment to the welfare of our people have always been exemplary, and I do not doubt that you will continue to uphold these values as you assume your new roles.

“It is worthy to note that Oyo Federal Constituency currently has one representative at the Oyo State Traditional Council, which is Alaawe of Aawe; he represents Afijio Local Government.

I hope that we work together towards ensuring that representatives are appointed for other Local Governments in Oyo Federal Constituency as soon as possible to maximize the gains of the council.

“May this elevation bring you even greater opportunities to make a positive impact on our society and foster unity and progress among our people. Your contributions are invaluable to the continued growth and development of our state.” He prayed.

Congratulations once again on this significant achievement. May you continue to inspire us all with your leadership and dedication.

Warm regards,

Hon. Olorunpoto Rahaman
