Olubadan-designate to be installed March 4

22 February 2016, 14:04

Ibadan - The Olubadan-Designate, High Chief Saliu Adetunji, will be installed on March 4.

The Olubadan-in-Council had pronounced Adetunji, who is the Balogun of Ibadan, the Olubadan-designate as he is the most senior in rank to mount the throne following the demise of Oba Samuel Odulana Odugade on January 19.

Adetunji released the date of his installation in his message to the President of the Ibadan Descendants Union, Laja Akintayo, through his (Adetunji) media aide, Adeola Oloko, at the weekend.

He added that the installation would be held at the Olubadan Palace in Oja’ba, Ibadan, while a reception would take place a day later.

The decision of Head of Seriki line, Chief Adebayo Oyediji, who is also laying claim to the Olubadan stool, to approach an Oyo State High Court seeking to stop the Olubadan-in-Council and the Oyo State Government from installing Adetunji as the next Olubadan had cast doubts over the coronation.

But the court rejected Seriki line’s application seeking to stop Adetunji’s coronation.

Adetunji said one of the reasons why the coronation was delayed was because the late Olubadan Odulana Odugade deserved to be given a befitting burial, which was successfully completed last week.
