Ibadan 21 Obas: Ajimobi Vows To Appeal Court Judgment
It is not yet time to celebrate, if you are one of those against Governor Ajimobi’s plan to review the Ibadan chieftaincy system.
Truly, the court has declared the review of the ‘1957 Olubadan Chieftaincy Declaration and other Related Chieftaincies in Ibadan’ as unconstitutional, illegal, null, void and of no effect.
But immediately after the judgment of the court on Friday in Ibadan, the constituted authority in Oyo state, Gov. Abiola Ajimobi said that the state will appeal the verdict.
“Today’s judgment on the Olubadan Chieftaincy review will be appealed immediately. We have embarked upon the exercise, not for joke, but for the good of Ibadan and the people.
“We will not relent in making Ibadan great and the greatness shall come from various ways, one of which is the review exercise.
“You should not expect people to accept change and radical policy for that matter, but we shall get there.
“We will not allow the forces of retrogression to overtake the progress Oyo State is making,’’ Ajimobi said.
The Justice Akintunde Boade Review Commission, which recommended the restructuring was set up by the Oyo State Government.
The commission had recommended the creation of several monarchs in Ibadan which led to the installation of 21 kings by the state Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
