Governor Makinde Appoints Olakuleyin as the New Olubadan of Ibadan

Governor Seyi Makinde has approved the appointment of Owolabi Olakuleyin as the 43rd Olubadan of Badanland.
Olusegun Olayiwola, the Oyo State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, issued a statement confirming this.

According to the statement, the approval represents the completion of a set of protocols outlined in the state’s existing laws governing the ascent to royal thrones.

The governor gave his consent via a document dated on June 14, 2024, in accordance with Section 19 (Cap 28) of the Oyo State Law of 2000, as modified.

Governor Makinde greeted the new Olubadan and hoped that his tenure will result in increased development in Ibadanland and Oyo State as a whole.

Meanwhile, Rashidi Ladoja, the Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, denounced Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde on Sunday for comments about the health of the Olubadan-Designate, Oba Owolabi Olakulehin.

According to Ladoja, Makinde was incorrect in saying Olakulehin would be enthroned when he is healthy, and that only the town (Ibadan people) can enthrone the Olubadan, not the Governor.

At the state burial ceremony for the late Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oyo State Governor Oba Lekan Balogun stated that Olakulehin will be enthroned when he is fit.

Ladoja, addressing with reporters at his Bodija, Ibadan home, said Makinde could only present personnel and instruments of office to the Olubadan-designate, not enthrone him.

He believed that the government’s participation was limited to providing the Olubadan-Designate with office staff and instruments.
