The Ogun State Executive Council has approved the appointment of Prince Babatunde Adewale Ajayi from Torungbuwa Ruling House as the new Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland.
This was contained in a release by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Taiwo Adeoluwa, on Tuesday, in Abeokuta, the state capital.
