Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi has described the emergence of High Chief Saliu Akanmu Adetunji as Olubadan-designate a divine arrangement that no one can change. 

 

Ajimobi stated this on Wednesday at his Ring Road, Oluyole Estate, Ibadan residence on Wednesday when the Olubadan-designate paid him a private visit.

 

“When recently, Baba (Adetunji) came to discuss with me his promotion to the post of Balogun following the death of High Chief Sule Omiyale, nobody could have thought that so soon after his promotion to the exalted seat of Balogun, he would be celebrating his imminence to the exalted throne of Olubadan of Ibadan land. But, this is the way of God. When God turns to you, then it is your turn.”

 

The governor pledge his support and co-operation towards the installation and coronation of the new Olubadan of Ibadan land.

 

Earlier, the Olubadan-designate had expressed his deep appreciation to the Governor Ajimobi-led Administration for his support to the traditional and chieftaincy institution in the state.

 

He particularly thanked the governor for his administration’s effort to give the late Olubadan, Oba Samuel Odulana Odugade a befitting burial. 

 

High Chief Adetunji described the late monarch as a highly respected, transparent and honest personality, saying the people of Ibadan land would miss him dearly.
