Latest News from Olubadan: My High Chiefs lying against me

Information reaching us as the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, has said that Otun Olubadan, High Chief Lekan Balogun, and the Balogun of Ibadan, High Chief Owolabi Olakulehin, were all lying against him in a statement credited to them that he failed to carry along the Olubadan-in-Council in his (Olubadan’s) recent decisions concerning the conferment of chieftaincy titles on individuals.
Base on report gathered the high chiefs had last week distanced themselves from the decision of the Olubadan to appoint Iswat Ameringun as the new Iyaloja of Ibadan after the Olubadan removed Chief Labake Lawal from the office.
They had also said they were not part of the installation of a former Secretary to the State Government in Oyo State and an ally of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Chief Olayiwola Olakojo, as the Mayegun of Ibadan.
However, in a statement signed by the monarch’s Director, Media and Public Affairs, Adeola Oloko, the Olubadan said he could not have made the decisions without the knowledge of
his high chiefs.
The monarch also said that the role of the high chiefs was “basically advisory”, adding that he was not an absolute monarch and, as such, was not authoritarian, “contrary to speculations.”
In the statement, Oloko said, “According to Oba Adetunji, how else do you carry your lieutenants along other than following the established procedure for the appointment of chiefs by tabling the matter and calling for a dispassionate discussions in the council?

“Specifically referring to the appointment of Chief Mrs Ameringun as the Iyaloja of Ibadan and Chief Olakojo as Mayegun of Ibadan, Adetunji maintained that the high chiefs were duly carried along before and during the chieftaincy installation ceremonies.”
