How death of Olubadan’s wife restored calm to Ibadan

Posted 1 wk ago
For close to six months, after the governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, elevated eight High Chiefs to the position of kings in Ibadan land, the Ibadan traditional council has been battling with crisis. Though the governor explained that he installed the new kings to bring more credibility to the traditional institution in the state, many indigenes of Ibadan had argued that the process through which the new kings emerged was wrong. Proper consultation could have been made by the government, argued some indigenes. 
The new kings recently issued a 21-day ultimatum to Olubadan to have a rethink but however, the crisis took another dimension before the leaders and elders in Ibadan intervened to ensure that the crisis ends.

Although the Olubadan and Governor Ajimobi had met severally after the installation of the new kings, there has not been any amicable resolution until the eldest wife of the monarch died in December 2017. 
Following the death of Chief Mrs Kudirat Aduke Adetunji, Governor Ajimobi paid the Olubadan a condolence visit. After that, the newly elevated kings also paid condolence visits to the monarch. As a result of their moves, the apex socio-cultural organization in Ibadan, the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes, intervened in the crisis and said it was confident that the lingering chieftaincy dispute triggered by the installation of 21 new obas by the Oyo State government will soon be settled out of court.
