Colonel Agbede emerges new leader of Yoruba Elders

Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE) has announced the emergence Dansaaki Samuel Agbede, a retired colonel and Chartered Quantity Surveyor, as the Interim President General.

This was contained in a statement yesterday by the Public Relations Officer, Chief R.K.O. Adebule.
It explained that YCE agreed on Agbede at its quarterly meeting on June 27, 2018.

Agbede was elected after Prof. Joseph Oluwasanmi, the first plastic surgeon in Nigeria, stepped down from the position.

Speaking on Agbede, Adebule, said “He has had notable achievements in the academic, professional, civil, military and consultancy endeavours in Nigeria.

“It is hoped that he will carry on and improve all the good works the former Presidents General left behind,” the spokesman added.

However, YCE lamented the death of two of its members – Chief Idowu Shofola, SAN, (the third President General) and Prof. Lola Adekunle – within one month.

The body hailed Shofola for his efforts in the procurement of its present headquarters and Adekunle for her financial and other contributions.
