With heavy hearts, we pay tribute to a remarkable soul who graced our land with wisdom, grace, and unwavering leadership. It is my honor to have known and be a partaker of the exemplary life and conduct of our dearly departed Chief Michael Olasubomi Balogun, CON – the Otunba Tunwase and Olori Omo-Oba of Ijebuland
As a foremost entrepreneur and banker, he was a beacon of hope and inspiration to everyone. As a promoter of the Christian faith and Ijebu culture, he had an extraordinary ability to unite our community, fostering a sense of harmony and togetherness that will forever be etched in our memories.
As we bid farewell to this extraordinary and illustrious son of Ogun State, we would always remember the lessons he taught us, cherish his legacy and continue to embody the values he held dear. In our actions and deeds, we would honor his memory and strive to build a society that reflects the compassion, dedication, and commitment he demonstrated throughout his time on earth.
On behalf of my family, the government and people of Ogun State, I say thank you, for living a great and impactful life. We pray God continue to grant the repose of your dear departed soul.
