Governor Makinde stated this while speaking at the final burial rites for the late Olubadan of Ibadanland, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, who died on January 2, 2022.
He said, “I want to greet all the traditional chiefs here seated.” I also greet all the mogajis and those working together with me in this government.”
Today, I am also happy that the crisis we have been witnessing on the issue of the Olubadan stool has been settled. “God has really taken control of everything.”
“This is another victory for Ibadan’s traditional institutions.” The process and the system were never broken. So there is nothing to fix. “So, I can say that we have now returned to our normal way of installing a new monarch in Ibadanland. It is a system that everyone wants to imitate, which shows how we set the pace in Oyo State.”
When the person who came to represent the Chief Imam was praying, he appealed that we should take care of all Baba left before he joined his ancestors. And I want to believe that we all know that I, Seyi Makinde, am one of those Baba cherished. “Therefore, don’t leave me. Continue to pray for my administration. “
