Lagos Assembly member Noheem Adams

Majority Leader of the Lagos State House of Assembly Noheem Adams has been decorated with a chieftaincy title of Otun-Oba of Ogombo Kingdom in Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State.

The ceremony on Saturday commemorated the King of Ogombo Oba Abiodun Ogunbo’s first anniversary on the throne.

Adams described the king as a kind-hearted leader who appreciated his domain’s positive development, adding that his good deeds have paid off greatly.

The lawmaker said he did not see the chieftaincy title coming, but leaders of his lineage – Dada Omolara ruling house – deemed it fit for him to be the next Otun-Oba of Ogombo land.

Eulogising the monarch, Adams said, “He has done a lot to promote Ogombo community, a facelift prior to his coronation, he used his personal fund to light up the place with solar-powered street light which improved nightlife in the area.

“Also, estate and schools now sprouting fast around the community was made possible by his public-spirited nature.

“Personally speaking, he has been my benefactor while growing up, he has been a father figure to me, all through my school days till when I started working at the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS).

“He did not stop there, at the time I was busy with the electioneering campaign to become a lawmaker, he was with me all the way, and God has also been faithful too in his new status having been crowned king last year.”

Adams noted that the chieftaincy title conferred on him was a call to service.

“The chieftaincy title conferred on me today is in commemoration of the king’s first-year coronation anniversary, the Oba’s good deeds prior to now have paid off greatly,” he added.
