Eminent Yoruba leaders and people from all walks of life, in their large numbers, have stormed oyo state in grand style.
They are there to honour Otunba Gani Adams who will be officially installed today as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland by the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, at Durba Stadium.
All the hotels in the town have been fully booked ahead of the installation ceremony.
Some dignitaries were said to have decided to lodge in Ibadan when they were informed that boarding could not be secured for them in Oyo on Friday. They are expected to move to Oyo which is less than 60 kilometres from Ibadan.
Eminent Nigerians expected to grace the installation today include President Muhammadu Buhari, and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo. The list also comprised former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, and his counterparts from other parts of Yorubaland.
Dignitaries are also expected to come from some parts of Benin Republic and Togo, that were part of the Old Oyo Empire.
Also, the leadership of Yoruba communities in Kwara and Kogi States are expected to attend the installation.
