The Head, Directorate of Information and Corporate Affairs in the institution, Mr Bode Olofinmuagun, on Monday confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Ado Ekiti, but did not give details.
The traditional ruler replaces the Alara of Aramoko Ekiti, Oba Adegoke Olu Adeyemi who held the office for four years during the last administration of former Gov. Ayo Fayose.
NAN learnt that consequent upon lamido’s appointment, management of the institution had paid homage to the Emir in his palace.
It was also gathered that the Emir had since accepted the offer, through a letter addressed to the government by the Matawallen Kano, Alhaji Ibrahim Ahmed.
