The Director noted that Oba Lekan Balogun was an embodiment of the Yoruba Omoluabi concept which he demonstrated during his reign as the 42nd Olubadan of Ibadanland. More importantly, Kabiyesi was accessible to all his subjects and encouraged peaceful co-existence among all the residents of Ibadan.
