In a press statement released by Comrade Moses Olafare, the Director, Media and Public Affairs, Ooni’s Palace, said Adeyeye is now the third on the order of the hierarchy of Ife traditional council, (Ooni-in-Council).
Ooni stated that the new position was the reward of his loyalty, commitment to service and dedication to Ife Kingdom.
The monarch described Adeyeye as patriotic Ife indigene and great loyalist of the throne of Oonirisa, which he had served meritoriously for 30 years in various capacities.
