As Kola Karim wears the big shoe

‘When an elephant dies, another elephant takes the throne’. The Yoruba proverb depicts the real situation as to what to come after the passage of the Agba Oye of Ibadanland, Chief Harry Akande, who died recently.

Chief Akande’s death created a void and plunged the Olubadan council into deep research as they seek a befitting replacement.

From information, the Chairman of Shoreline Energy, Kola Karim is who the cap fits.

The gentleman’s profile stands him out and the message is going round that Ibadan is about to have a new Agba-Akin.

The process is ongoing and an excitement fills the city.
