Stop further comments over Olubadan throne, group urges Ibadan indigenes



The sons and daughters of Ibadanland have been urged to stop further comments over the throne of the late Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Salliu Adetunj Aje Ogugunniso I, that is currently vacant.

This is according to a statement signed by the President General, Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes, Prince Oluyemisi Adetayo Adeaga.

The CCII said the arguments and discussions surrounding the vacant throne have been found to be unnecessarily preemptive, adding that they are fanning the embers of enmity and discord.

The statement read, “The entire membership of the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes commiserateS with the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr Seyi Makinde, the people of the state, especially, the citizens and people of Ibadanland on the demise of His Imperial Majesty, Oba Salliu Adetunj Aje Ogugunniso I, the late Olubadan of Ibadanland, which the sad event occurred on Sunday, January 2, 2022. This medium is also being used to appeal for caution and calm by all and sundry who have severely engaged in expressing various views and opinions on the ascendancy of a successor to the now vacant throne. Many people have either openly or otherwise, demonstrated his/her passion for Ibadanland and this is appreciated. However, the arguments and discussions have been found to be both unnecessarily preemptive with daily developing acidic contents, thus fanning the embers of enmity and discord among the hitherto loving people in the society and those contradicting the good intentions of all the parties contrary to the good intentions of all the parties involved.

“We sincerely appeal to all members of the public that this avoidable negative trend should be stalled and we have, therefore, decided that henceforth, all sons and daughters of Ibadanland and our concerned friends should cease further comments, publications and or arguments on the matter and leave the issue till Ibadanland would resolve its issue as it has always been done. We also appeal to all the erudite lawyers that have engaged or have the intention to engage on the matter to please, in the corporate interest of Ibadanland, align with us to two this path of sustaining communal love and peace, especially, our corporate image.

“Let us assure you all that the Olubadan in Council, the body vested with the authority to recommend the right candidate to ascend the throne will, at the appropriate time, act justly while the Executive Governor of Oyo State, in whom the authority to approve the candidate so recommended for installation, will, as usual, be prompt and righteous in discharging his executive authorities. Hence, all of us are assured of a rancourless process that shall produce the expected results, sooner than expected. The day is still young and the process is yet to slow down.”
