Awujale angry with politicians for booing Saraki at Ojude-Oba


Embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki’s presence at Ojude-Oba festival sparked furious backlash as he was subject of vitriol – no thanks to supporters of All Progressive Congress.

The latter’s outburst drew response from the Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona,  who berated the APC supporters saying,  “Those who waved the broom are not of Ijebu extraction. I believe they must have been hired. The Ojude Oba is over 100 years, what you did today has never happened. Many groups are here, what you have done today has never happened.

“I believe most of you are not members of the APC. We have people from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the Social Democratic Party, PDP, among others.

“Ojude Oba is about culture and tradition. It is non-political. It has been like that since our forefathers started it. It is an abomination for anyone to drag politics into it.

“I want to appeal that such act should not repeat itself here. If those who hired you are bold enough, they should show their faces.”
