New Olubadan to be named Monday

The next Olubadan of Ibadanland will on Monday be announced by the Oyo State government.

This followed the death of the former occupant of the throne, Oba Saliu Adetunji on January 2.

Speaking during the final burial ceremony of late Olubadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji on Saturday, Governor Seyi Makinde said he had received the letter of recommendation from the kingmakers and would do the needful without further delay.

“I have received a letter from the Olubadan-in-Council and by the grace of God, on Monday, I will make the official announcement of the new Olubadan of Ibadanland.”

Makinde was quoted as saying in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa as saying, “This is another victory for Ibadan traditional institution.

“The process and the system were never broken. So there is nothing to fix. So, I can say that we have now returned to our normal way of installing a new monarch in Ibadanland. Now, it is a system that everyone wants to imitate, which shows how we set the pace in Oyo State.

“When the person who came to represent the Chief of Imam was praying, he appealed that we should take care of all Baba left before he joined his ancestors. And I want to believe that we all know that I, Seyi Makinde, am one of those Baba cherished. Therefore, don’t leave me. Continue to pray for my administration.”
