Olubadan: Ex-Gov Ladoja, Oyewole, Kola-Daisi installed as Otun, Osi, Ashipa

...As Ajibade, Akande become Ekerin, Ekarun Olubadan

The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, Alli Okunmade ll, installed former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Rashidi Ladoja as Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland at Aliiwo Palace in Ibadan.

Recall that the elevation of the former governor, who holds the title of Osi-Olubadan is sequel to the vacuum created by the demise of the former Olubadan, late Oba Saliu Adetunji, Aje Ogungunniso 1, which paved the way for the promotion and installation of Senator Lekan Balogun as the new Olubadan of Ibadanland on March 11, 2022.

Oba Balogun, in a statement by his media aide, Oladele Ogunsola, said the promotion of Ladoja would pave way for the upward movement of the High Chiefs behind him as discussed at the last meeting of the Olubadan Advisory Council.

According to the statement: "Following the promotion of the former governor, High Chief Eddy Oyewole who presently holds the title of Ashipa Olubadan would become Osi-Olubadan and High Chief Biodun Kola-Daisi would from Ekerin Olubadan become Ashipa Olubadan.

"Similarly, the current Ekarun Olubadan, High Chief Hamidu Ajibade would be installed as the Ekerin Olubadan while the trail blazer in the private ownership of radio station in the ancient metropolis, the promoter of Splash F.M, Senior Chief Adebayo Akande, the current Maye Olubadan moves up to become High Chief with the title of Ekarun Olubadan." The statement added.

Olubadan, in the statement, was quoted to have congratulated the promoted lieutenants with a charge to them to see their elevation as a call to higher duty for the growth, development and progress of Ibadanland.
