One of the most prominent traditional rulers in Oyo state, The Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba (Dr.) Oladunni Oyewunmi Ajagungbade III has declared his endorsement for AmfestExpo2018.
Oba Oyewunmi, who was crowned in 1976, and is currently one of the longest serving traditional rulers in Nigeria, is a truly cosmopolitan Royal Father, having worked for the French owned firm, CFAO and traveled abroad as far as Germany, France, the United Kingdom as well as the United States of America before he was crowned Oba.
