Former Deputy National President of NUJ Prince Rotimi Obamuwagun has emerged the Olumoru of Imoru in Ose LGA of Ondo State.
Prince Obamuwagun polled 3 out of 5 votes by the King makers.
Prince Kole Olowojoba came second with 2 votes while other candidates, Prince Charles Olotu, Prince Akin Oluwafemi, Prince Oriade Adejare Oshodi, and Prince Ade Okiki score no vote.
Meanwhile, the NUJ Ondo state council has congratulated the veteran journalist for his election as the new Olumoru-elect.
In a Press Statement signed by the State Secretary of NUJ, Leke Adegbite, the Union notes that the emergence of our former leader as the Monarch will enhance rapid development of the town.
Ondo NUJ also believes that Prince Obamuwagun will use his connection and his many years of journalism practice to facilitate investment and general peaceful coexistence at Imoru.
The Union appeals to other contestants who lost out in the race to join hands with the Olumoru-Elect to move the town forward after several years of interregnum.
It is our prayer in NUJ and media industry generally that Prince Obamuwagun will live long on the throne than your forefathers.
Once more, on behalf of NUJ State Chairman, Adetona Aderoboye and entire members, I celebrate you. Congratulations Kabiyesi!
