Princess Adetutu Adesida-Dike installed regent in Akureland

Following the death of Oba Adebiyi Adesida of Akureland, Princess Adetutu Adesida- Dike, the first daughter of the late traditional ruler was on Saturday installed as the Regent of the ancient town. The

development came almost a month after the Monarch, who was until his death, the Chairman of the State Council of Obas, passed away in his palace, during a brief illness, at the age of 63.

The traditional installation of the Regent took place at the Palace of the town on late Saturday evening and was carried out by the chiefs.

While speaking with reporters at the palace, the Regent said she would do her best to contribute to the development of the town during the duration of her regency, saying " I take it up where my father stopped with the help of almighty God".

On leaving her husband in the United States to take up a traditional position in Nigeria, Adesida-Dike said: "the regency can not disturb my role as a mother and wife and as a career woman, I have also taken leave of absence from my place of work in the United States, my husband knows that I am a Princess before he agreed to marry me and he also knows that anytime my father died as a king, I have to assume this position, so there won't be any problem.

"I know this is a duty I have to perform, so I have called on my God to help me to succeed in the journey and also that God will help the king makers to choose the right person to be the next king".

She then called on the state government and the entire people of Akure land to give her their supports in other to succeed in the task.

Adesida-Dike, a United States of America (USA)- based pharmacist will be on the throne until the installation of another Monarch.
