It was further gathered that he was on the brink of adding another feather to his cap with a PhD convocation scheduled for July.

“Oba Ogunleye was a paragon of virtue and a role model to millions of youths in Owu, Ogun State, and across Nigeria. 

“His legacy in journalism, public relations, traditional rulership, and law will continue to inspire future generations,” Ajibola remarked
