Ibadan kingmakers certify Olakulehin fit for coronation as Olubadan

The Olubadan-in-Council  Friday endorsed Chief Owolabi Olakulehin, the Olubadan-designate as fit to ascend the throne as Olubadan of Ibadanland.

The Council made the declaration at the end of a special meeting with the Olubadan-designate at Oja-Oba palace of Olubadan in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The meeting was attended by 10 Olubadan-in-Council members while the Otun Balogun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Abimbola Ajibola, who allegedly said Olakulehin was not fit, was absent at the meeting.

Addressing journalists after the meeting, the Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Chief Rashidi Ladoja said members of Olubadan-in-Council had done their part as Ibadan kingmakers.

He further disclosed that a letter would be sent to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State for the government’s consent before the coronation of Olakulehin as the 43rd Olubadan of Ibadanland.

“After the governor’s consent, the coronation date will be announced. We thank everyone for the support as we pray that all of us will be alive to witness the coronation,” said Ladoja.
