‘No one can stop Olakulehin from becoming Olubadan’ – Ladoja

Read Time:1 Minute, 15 Second

A former governor of Oyo State, Rashidi Ladoja, has advised indigenes and residents of Ibadan not to take the Otun Balogun of Ibadanland, High Chief Tajudeen Ajibola, seriously.

Ladoja, who is the Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, noted that Ajibola cannot stop the Olubadan-designate, Owolabi Akinloye Olakulehin, from becoming the Olubadan.

Ladoja made these declarations while addressing journalists at his Ondo Street, Ibadan, residence shortly after he observed the two-Rakah Eid el-Fitri prayer along with other Muslim faithful on Wednesday.

According to DAILY POST Ajibola on Tuesday declared that Olakulehin is not fit to become the Olubadan.

But Ladoja, while addressing journalists, noted that Ajibola is entitled to his opinion and cannot stop Olakulehin from becoming Olubadan.

“He is entitled to his opinion. I know him as a lawyer, not a medical doctor. So, he cannot say that Olakulehin is not fit to become Olubadan. You know that Osi Balogun has already declared Olakulehin fit for the position, so who do we believe? We cannot listen to him. People should not take him seriously.

“Ajibola is not a 20-year-old man; he is not a 30 or 40-year-old man; he is above 80 years old, so we can expect him to act like a youth. Ajibola can be substituted to nominate Olubadan if he does not come to the meeting.

“I have already slated a meeting for Friday because tomorrow is a public holiday; if he does not come, he can be substituted,” Ladoja stated.
