By  | 

Social media has been buzzing with a flurry of comments after the Arujale (Ojima) of Okeluse Kingdom in Ondo State, Oba Oloyede Adeyeoba Akinghare II, announced the completion of his secondary school education.

The 19-year-old Akinghare, who is considered the youngest monarch in Yoruba land and Nigeria at large, recently took to his Instagram page to share pictures from his graduation ceremony.

While congratulating himself on the feat, the excited traditional leader expressed gratitude to his family, friends and the people of Okeluse Kingdom for supporting his academic journey.

Akinghare also thanked the management and staff of his school, Greater Tomorrow International School located in the Arigidi-Akoko area of Ondo State.

“Congratulations to me as the journey of 6years in secondary school finally ended today thankful to God Almighty, my parents, my sisters, my chiefs, my friends, well wishers and the entire citizens of Okeluse Kingdom for all the support everyone of you have rendered throughout the 6years of being in a boarding school,” he wrote.

“I also want to appreciate the proprietor of GREATER TOMORROW INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE @gticng and every single staff who made my stay in boarding school pleasant, I appreciate you all.”

The monarch, however, called for more support as he joins the league of adults, vowing to work for the development of his Kingdom, like his forebears.

“My journey into adulthood begins now with the numerous tasks ahead of me and I implore every single lover out there to support me as I can’t do this alone, will continue to strive for the development of my kingdom, my people and elevating the stool of my forefathers into greatness,” he said.

In 2019, Akinghare was installed as the 45th Arujale (Ojima) of Okeluse, succeeding his late father, Oba Adeyemo Adeyeoba who ruled the ancient town between 2012 and 2019.
