He was a great bridge builder whose passion for the development of his immediate community is second to none. He earned the respect of all his Subjects and this made his efforts at uniting the whole Owu people and to bring about peace in his kingdom east to achieve.

“My deep condolences to Baba Obasanjo, the Balogun and symbol of Owu identity and unity all over the world. I pray God grant him the strength to manage this grief; I share in the pains of the Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun and the Alake of Egbaland, Kabiyesi, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo on the painful exit of Oba Dosumu. I pray that God should grant them all the fortitude in this trying period”
