The Staff And management of The OldEnglish Bakery and Superstores congratulate His Royal Majesty HRM Oba Michael Adedotun Gbadebo III (Okukenu IV), CFR, the Alake of Egbaland, on his 80th birthday.

As His Royal Majesty celebrates the attainment of this epic milestone, the management and staff of The OldEnglish Bakery wish that the splendour of his insight and distinctive ardour which manifest as the beauty of royal pride, attain brilliant awakening through Egba Kingdom’s finest and most auspicious times.

May his royal palace become the hub of high festivity and a pleasant place for rare merriment as he clocks 80.

May his fortune rouse in brilliant colours and revive the fresh beauties of his youth. May the fleecy storms that freeze the bones and the chilly fate that obscures the vernal hour evade him.

The punctuation of anniversaries is epochal, like the closing of one door and the entrance through another; may the 80th year furnish HRM Oba Adedotun Gbadebo with fresh vistas of ethereal grace; may it oblige him the luxury of bliss reminiscent of the most fertile glade.

It is pertinent to note that not only Egbaland but Ogun State in its entirety has undergone remarkable changes since his ascension to the great throne 18 years ago.
Great progress has since manifested throughout the kingdom in the intervening years.

We call this the “Oba Gbadebo Effect.” His towering humanity, compassion and devotion to the elevation of the fortunes of his domain manifest in virtual lockstep with the citizens’ dreams of progress and the traditions that form the bedrock of our modern society.

Little wonder the Egba Kingdom remains the envy of neighbouring domains and the dream habitat for most individuals, groups, ethnicities, investors, and business interests.
It is on account of his enabling business environment facilitated by his peaceful reign that The OldEnglish, for instance, makes an ambitious foray into Abeokuta via its Bakery franchise, among others.
The OldEnglish Bakery, a rare combination of visionary enterprise, diligent service, public affection and love has birthed its chain of stores in Abeokuta, starting in Oke Ilewo, a bustling commercial hub. The idea is herculean in execution yet audacious in its simplicity and excellent returns. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

Inventive thinking, leadership through service and above all, an unwavering devotion to customer needs makes The OldEnglish Bakery and Superstores the go-to arena for all and sundry in Abeokuta and beyond. And we make this remarkable foray into Ogun State on the royal watch of HRM Adedotun Gbadebo.

Oba Gbadebo III surely epitomises a royal grandeur that is rooted in hundreds of years of history, brilliance, enterprise, and wisdom, bringing us right up to date with what the Egba nation means to Ogun State and Nigeria as a whole. In a fast-changing world, the celebration of a titan like him reignites memories of illustrious sons and daughters of Egba land who went on to become national heroes.

HRM Adedotun Gbadebo (Okukenu IV) surely personifies the best of our past and the promise of our future. While his attainment of the age of 80 holds great symbolism, it also represents the finest moment in time for the Paramount Monarch and the great people of Ogun State.
From the moment he ascended the throne, he has dedicated his life to the service of the people. His commitment to better the interests of both young and old, male and female across his domain, and Nigeria in general, is well documented.

His embrace of different faiths and cultures has, so far, united clans and nationalities in fruitful understanding and friendship.

The OldEnglish hereby wishes heartfelt congratulations to His Royal Majesty Gbadebo III. As he celebrates his oak jubilee, may the enduring qualities of humaneness, wisdom, compassion, and foresight serve him well as he rules over the great people of Egbaland.

Long may you live, Your Royal Majesty
