New Olubadan enthronement: Ladoja tackles Makinde over Olakulehin’s health status


The controversy surrounding the enthronement of the new Olubadan of Ibadanland lingers as the  Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, tackles  Governor Seyi Makinde over his comments on the health status of the Olubadan-Designate, Oba Owolabi Olakulehin.

He said the Governor was wrong to have said Olakulehin would be enthroned when he fit, saying only the town (Ibadan people) could enthrone the Olubadan not the Governor – ‘The Nation’  reports.

Makinde at the state burial ceremony for late Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, said Olakulehin  would be enthroned when he was fit for the throne.

He maintained that the role of government was just to give staff of office and instrument of office to the Olubadan-Designate.

“The Governor might have access to medical records of Olakulehin’s health or send his doctors to access his health or use artificial intelligence to do that.

“I don’t have any problem if the governor refuses to give him staff of office or instrument of office but he is not the one to enthrone him.

“Olakulehin is an aged man, we didn’t expect him to still be acting like a youth.”
