Iruland comes alive again


By Olushola Victor

Since His Royal Majesty, Oba Idowu Abiodun Oniru, went to join his ancestors, little has been happening in Iru land, Victoria Island, Lagos. The king passed away in September last year after a brief illness.

But everything changed on Sunday, September 5, as a new dawn beckoned. Although the new Oniru, Oba Gbolahan Lawal, had ascended the throne since June, his coronation ceremony took place a few days ago.

The wait has ended and the king has also released his agenda for the community. Some of the needs that will be given priority by Oba Lawal are roads, drainage system, power supply, street light, waste recycling, security, traffic control, among others.

Apart from setting up a foundation, HRM Abisogun II Foundation for Peace and Development (HAIIF), the new Oniru has ordered works to begin on the Oniru Royal Museum. The Oniru Royal Museum will be positioned as a leading institution in reawakening the modern day generation while the foundation seeks to empower sons and daughters of the kingdom, as well as other well-meaning Lagosians.
