Olubadan Remains My Father – Ajimobi
Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has said that Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, remains his father and has no plan to depose or sanction the monarch.
Ajimobi said this on Thursday, at a meeting with the traditional council members in the 11 local councils in Ibadan.
The governor alleged that “failed politicians” were instigating the monarch against his government, and were also behind the shooting which occurred at the monarch’s palace during an installation ceremony.
The governor, who noted that the office of the governor is higher and above other titles in the land, said he would never allow the situation to cause any acrimony between himself and the monarch.
Ajimobi maintained that what is going on is an indication that the palace had been hijacked by former Governor Rashidi Ladoja and his likes who are bent on taking the state back to the gory days.
