The Olobaagun of Obaagun, Oba Jimoh Adebisi Okunade, Kayode the second, has  on Monday, the 8th of August, 2022 installed one of the indigenes of the community and an Abuja based legal practitioner, Dauda Ajadosu as the new  Eesa of Obaagun.
    By  traditional hierarchy, he becomes  the next in command to the Olobaagun as well as  the head of the Kingmakers in the ancient town.
     Performing the installation in his palace , Oba Okunade noted that Barrister Ajadosu who hails  from  Eesa Oniayowo compound of the town  emerged the new traditional chief after following due process of chieftaincy law governing the stool, thorough investigation into his past and present
antecedents coupled with  his track records of always being interested in anything developmental for the town .
     It was also gathered that his  appointment and subsequent  installation followed the demise of the immediate past High chief Eesa Olawuyi Olagunju  from Mamoje’s compound who died recently.
     In his remarks at the brief installation  event, the monarch called on the people of the community to support the new chief just as he  expressed confidence in his  ability  to fast track socio economic development to the ancient community using his education, exposure  and wealth of experiences in and outside his professional background as a legal practitioner of note in Abuja where he is currently based.
      Oba Okunade maintained that the community is desirous of having young minds  as Chiefs  in the ancient town, just like the new Eesa, stressing that such will be a catalyst to fast tracking growth and development for the ancient town.
     The monarch in his royal blessings  prayed to  God   to assist the new Eesa with the necessary knowledge, wisdom and understanding coupled with good health and long life to carry out his new assignments .
In his  remarks shortly after he was symbolically  decorated with the famous  Akoko/Iyeye leaves by High Chief Kehinde Adeyemi, the Odofin of Obaagun land, the new Eesa pledged total loyalty to God and the people for the honour and recognition bestowed on him. He particularly thanked the  Olobaagun of Obaagun, his chiefs and the entire indigenes of the town  for the honour and privilege which he described as a call to serve not only the good people of Obaagun land but humanity as a whole.

     Chief Ajadosu also used the opportunity to specifically call on the  youths of the town and its  elders  to make the growth and development of Obaagun their first priority at home and Diaspora.
