‘Olubadan-designate Olakulehin being forced to rule’ – Otun Balogun


The Otun Balogun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Abimbola Ajibola, has claimed that the Olubadan-designate, Oba Owolabi Olakulehin, is not fit to rule at the moment.

According to him, Oba Olakulehin is still ill.

Oba Ajibola stated this while speaking to newsmen at his Sanyo private residence in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Tuesday.

He said: “What is in need for hurry? Someone (Olakulehin) we have not seen. He has not spoken with us. He has not spoken with Ibadan people.

“I am his second in command, I’m his lieutenant. He has not called me to say, ‘My Otun, I’m back. So, tell your people. And when are you seeing me?’ They are just forcing him because of their own selfish interest.”

The Olubadan stool became vacant after the passing away of the late Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun.

Oba Balogun reigned for two years and died at the age of 81
