October 10, (THEWILL) – The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has conferred the Speaker of the House of Representative, Rt Hon Olufemi Hakeem Gbajabiamila, with the chieftaincy title of Baasofin of Yoruba land (Supreme legislative guide of the Yorubas). This was disclosed in a letter sent by his royal majesty to the Speaker.

According to the monarch, Gbajabiamila was honoured due to his antecedent as an astute legislator and also for his eventual emergence as the Speaker of the House. He was also chosen because he has successfully represented the Yoruba, is active in nation building and for his participation in ensuring that the practice of separation of power is followed. As the Baasofin of Yoruba land, Gbajabiamila is now one of the great empire builders and defenders of the Yoruba. The paramount ruler advised the legal luminary to use his good qualities to serve the Yoruba and for the advancement of a balanced system of government.
