Olubadan Confers Mogaji Title to APC Chieftain, Joseph Tegbe
The Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji has conferred the Mogaji title of Oguntegbe family in Labo area of Ibadan to a former gubernatorial aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Engr. Joseph Olasunkanmi Tegbe
Tegbe had contested for the APC gubernatorial primary along with others of the party in 2018 but failed to emerged as the party flag bearer.
Prior to the APC primary in 2018, some indigenous sons and daughters of Ibadan had alleged that Tegbe is from Delta State, therefore he can’t rule in Oyo State.
But the Olubadan who described Tegbe as a “beloved son of Ibadan,” said that the installation has ended the controversy surrounding Tegbe’s indigineship.
The monarch, while installing Tegbe alongside three other Mogajis on Monday, said, “Tegbe is our beloved son”.
Three other Mogajis who were installed at the Popoyemoja palace of the Olubadan on Monday are Chief Isiaka Adeniyi Ojebode who was installed as Mogaji of Ile-Iwo family in Oja Oba, Chief Sikiru Adekola Olotu who was installed as Mogaji of Adesun/Adabanija and Chief Lukman Adeleke who was installed as Mogaji of Odeku in Bode area of Ibadan.
Tegbe, while speaking noted that the installation has clearly ended the controversy surrounding his indigineship.
He said, “My installation has revalidated the obvious, that the man who has his origin here is from Edo, Delta. We are revalidating the obvious about the serious allegations.
“I am very grateful to the Olubadan and the entire Olubadan in council for honouring me; for installing me as Mogaji of Oguntegbe family in Labo Ibadan which further confirmed some of the things we have been doing in Ibadan.
“This is just the beginning of the good things to come to my family and Ibadan land”.
