Kingmakers of Ibadan known as the Olubadan-in-Council have endorsed the nomination of a former senator, Lekan Balogun, as the next Olubadan of Ibadan land.

On January 2, 2022, the 41st Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, died aged 93.

There has been some controversy over the ascension of Balogun to the throne.

However, during a meeting which held in Mapo hall, Ibadan, the 10 high chiefs announced that there is no court case preventing them from appointing the new Olubadan.

They said the administration of the late Abiola Ajimobi did not tamper with the Ibadan chieftaincy declaration of 1957 by elevating them from high chiefs to kings.

Speaking at the meeting, Balogun said: “I enjoin you all to discard with all unfounded rumours and insinuations capable of disturbing the peace of Ibadanland, irrespective of the quarter from which such fake news emanate.
