Oyo State Governor has denied that his decision to review the Olubadan chieftaincy laws is an attempt to prevent the Osi Olubadan Rasheed Ladoja from ascending the Olubadan throne.

The governor said this after the Eid prayers at the Agodi Muslim praying ground in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The Olubadan and Ladoja are opposed to the Ibadan chieftaincy system review initiated by Ajimobi and the installation of 21 new kings in the city.

Ajimobi said the controversy that had followed the review would soon be over with more enlightenment campaigns.

He also said that the Olubadan would remain his father despite his [Olubadan’s] opposition to the reform.

He said, “In the spirit of the celebration, I want to pray that God will continue to grant our prayers and give us more progress so that the state will not retrogress.

“I also use this opportunity to greet our father, the Olubadan of Ibadanland. He is my father and he will continue to be, he is a good father; it’s only that some politicians are hiding under him to cause rift and misunderstanding between us. God will elongate his reign.

“I also use this opportunity to greet my elder brother, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, who is saying it is because of him that we are reviewing the Olubadan chieftaincy laws so that he will not become the Olubadan. God will let him be an Olubadan if he is destined to be".
