Engineer Mufutau Open Salawu, the Babalaje of Ogbomoso land has been turbaned as the Giwa Adini of Oyo state.
The turbaning ceremony was held, in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, on Saturday, the 2nd of July, 2022, under the leadership of Sheikh Abd Ganiyy Abubarkar Agbotomokekere, the Chief Imam of Ibadanland and Grand Imam of Oyo State.
Speaking momentarily after the ceremony, Open Salawu, also the Waziri Jari Nupe, thanked Allah and the Muslim ummah for finding him worthy of the important position due to his contribution to the society.
He pledged to do more and prayed Allah should grant everyone long lives to witness it.
His words: “Glory be to God, it is a thing of a joy, it is one of the so many things that God have in package for us. It is destined that we’ll be Giwa Adini today.
“I was made to understand that the last Giwa Adini bears the same name with me. So it could be a coincidence of destiny, but we know this is as a result of contribution to the growth of society, and we pray that almighty Allah should spare our lives so that we can do more.”
