The Olowu of Kuta, Oba Adekunle Oyelude Makama, Tegbosun III, was also honoured with the Commander of the Order of Niger (CON).
The national honour was bestowed upon Oba Adekunle in recognition of his unwavering support for the military and his consistent efforts to encourage Nigerians to support the Nigerian Army.

The Olowu in council expressed their gratitude to President Buhari for recognizing their traditional ruler with such a significant national honour.
