Obaseki Mourns Passing of Olososo of Ososo, Oba Anselm Obaitan

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has mourned the passing of the Olososo of Ososo, Oba Anselm Adeloro Obaitan, Ichama II, JP, who passed on after a 32-year reign on the throne of his forefathers.

Obaseki, in a statement, said the monarch’s reign united the people of Ososo in Akoko-Edo Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, bringing lasting peace and development to the community and the state.

The governor also commiserated with the Edo State Commissioner for Arts and Culture, Prince Bamidele Obaitan, the entire Obaitan family, the people of Ososo as well as friends and associates of the late monarch, praying that God grants all the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

The statement reads: “It is with sadness and great grief that I received the news of the passing of the Olososo of Ososo, Oba Anselm Adeloro Obaitan, Ichama II, JP, a committed bridge builder and royalty par excellence.

“His royal highness was a distinguished traditional ruler who dedicated his 32 year-reign to building a united community and advancing causes to better the lives of his people, contributing immensely to the growth and development of the state.

“A committed family man and loving royal father, Oba Anselm Obaitan lived a life of service to humanity and the upliftment of others, endearing him to his subjects and everyone that came in contact with him. He will be sorely missed for his wise royal counsel, fatherly guidance and advice.”

The governor noted, “On behalf of the government and good people of Edo State, I commiserate with the Commissioner of Arts and Culture, Prince Bamidele Obaitan, the entire Obaitan family, the people of Ososo as well as friends and associates of the late monarch and pray that God grants all the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
