No controversy over Olubadan succession – Ladoja


The Osi Olubadan of Ibadan, Senator Rashidi Ladoja, has pushed back at speculation that controversy surrounded the Olubadan throne, saying the Otun Olubadan, Senator Lekan Balogun, is the next in line.

 Ladoja, who was rumoured to be in the running for the throne and was the only absentee out of the other eleven chiefs at the meeting where Balogun was endorsed denied any insinuation that he was aggrieved in a statement he released.

It reads in part: “Uninformed people are just causing unnecessary tensions in Ibadan. There is no controversy about who becomes the next Olubadan after the demise of Oba Saliu Adetunji.”
