The Day OGD Locked Down LAGOS, As His Son OLUROTIMI Quits Bachelorhood






Days after the wedding, everybody is still talking about it.Some have called it the Mother of all weddings. Others have described it as The Wedding to beat.

This is because the wedding of Olurotimi, the 1st son of former Ogun governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel was Grand & Classy.lt will be a Wedding to remember.

Over 100 first class Obas including Alake, Akarigbo, OSILE, Olu of ILARO, Dagberewe of IDOWA led 20 Obas from Ijebuland representing the AWUJALE to come and honour, the Obalofin of Ijebuland, a title once held by Sir Mobolaji Bank Anthony,

The AKARIGBO came with about 25 Obas to come and honour The Arole of Remo Kingdom, The Oba of LAGOS sent 12 white cap chiefs and 3 Oloris.

All the way from Ilesha came The Owa Obokun where OGD is the Asoju Oba of Ijeshaland.

From the east of the Niger was HRM Eze ILOMUANYA who led a powerful delegation to come and honour the Okosisi of Ubinugu.

The Sultan sent his emissary.

Intelligent report indicated that The President mandated the Hon Minister for Mines, Arc Olamilekan Adegbite to stand in for him although it’s not clear if he finally made it. The VP was unable to get there because of difficult weather conditions but was represented by his wife, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo, who led a bevy of First Ladies past and present to grace the occasions.

They include the First Lady of Lagos, Mrs. Sanwoolu who was stuck in the traffic at the venue for over one hour.

Mrs Abiodun Ogun State, Bere Derinsola Osoba, Mrs Yinka Ladoja, Mrs Akala, Mrs Fashola and others.

Virtually all the southwest Governors, past and Present came. Chairman of the Governors Forum, His Exc Kayode Fayemi, Ogun State Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun, OYO State Governor Seyi Makinde, Osun State Governor, Gboyega OYETOLA, Lagos State Governor was represented by His Deputy Jide Hamzat.

Former Governors, OLAGUNSOYE OYINLOLA of OSUN state, Chief Alao Akala, Brig-Gen Raji RASAKI rtd, Col Daniel AKINTONDE and many others.

Several former Deputy Governors including Salmot Badru, Ogun State, Sarah Sosan, Lagos, Erelu OBADA OSUN State all came to honor Otunba Gbenga Daniel

Hon Ministers Lai Mohammed and Dr Olorunnimbe MAMORA were seen enjoying themselves.


A shocking appearance to everyone was the sudden appearance of Sen Ibikunle Amosun who have been at loggerheads with Otunba Gbenga Daniel for about 15 years. Curiously OGD embraced and welcome him making him feel at home while getting him and the Governor of Ogun State to shake hands in the spirit, while Governor Emeritus Segun Osoba, who incidentally have become quite close to OGD was watching the development.

The VVIPs who graced the ocassion remain unprecedented. The wedding Service was conducted under the auspices of CAN, Christian Association of Nigeria where OGD is also the Asiwaju of Remo Christians, a position last held by the late sage Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Early arrivals were His Exc Chief Olusegun OBASANJO and his wife, and also Her Exc Margarette SHONEKAN, wife of the former Head of The Interim Government, Chief Earnest SHONEKAN, GCFR who later joined the Reception.

Also in attendance was Chief Bode George, Sen Ogunlewe, Sen Grace Folasade Bent, Sen Lee Maeba and a host of Party Chieftains accross the major political parties.

The list of VVIPs and VIPs appear in exhaustible.
