Olubadan: Olakulehin Returns to Ibadan, Set For Coronation [PHOTOS]


The Olubadan-designate, Owolabi Akinloye Olakulehin, has returned to Ibadan, the state capital.


AKEDE OYO reports that Olakulehin, who is the current Balogun of Ibadanland, arrived his Alalubosa residence on Friday.

The Olubadan-designate has been away for some days.

The arrival of Olakulehin on Friday has doused the tension over the whereabout of the next Olubadan.

Our correspondent reports that some members of the Olubadan-in-Council have arrived his residence to pay him homage.


Some of those who paid homage to Olakulehin include the Osi Balogun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Lateef Adebimpe, the Osi Olubadan, Eddy Oyewole-Foko, the Ashipa Olubadan, Abiodun Kola-Daisi and Asipa Balogun Olubadan, Kola Adegbola.


Adebimpe who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, said that the Olubadan-designate is hale and hearty.

He said that it is impossible for the Olubadan-in-Council to nominate Olakulehin as Olubadan unless they are sure that he is in good condition.

“It has been some time we have seen our Kabiyesi, Owolabi Olakulehin, in our midst, and we have been making arrangements for Olakulehin’s coronation ceremony, who is our new Olubadan of Ibadanland.


“We thank God that he is hale and hearty, and very soon, he will ascend the throne of his forefathers. We will relate what we see here to our colleagues.”
