Ready to ascend throne of my forefathers — Olubadan-designate

The Olubadan- designate, Oba Owolabi Olakulehin, has said he was ready to wear the crown as the 43rd Olubadan.

Oba Olakulehin who spoke eloquently for the first time said this when Governor Seyi Makinde’s representatives paid him a courtesy visit at his Alalubosa residence in Ibadan.
The visit which could be described as part of the process that would lead to the governor’s approval was made by the Oyo State Advisory Council led by Chief Bolaji Ayorinde (SAN).

The Olubadan-designate spoke to the admiration of all the people in attendance who expressed excitement when they heard the next Olubadan speaking in a coherent manner to put paid to various insinuations about his health status.
Oba Olakulehin who reiterated that he was hale and hearty said he knew that he had the divine backing of God Almighty and that it was indeed his turn to mount the throne.
“I am happy and excited seeing the delegation from our governor. When I was told that you were coming, I immediately informed my Chiefs to join me in receiving you.
“I am happy that my people are here with me. I am fully ready. I know God is behind me. He has said that I am the next Olubadan, and I know truly that it is my turn.

“By God’s grace, I will not disappoint you my people. All of us that have been together in the system for long shall celebrate the success together.

“I thank the governor for initiating this visit. We shall equally be expecting him as promised,” Oba Olakulehin said while addressing the governor’s delegation.

Also speaking on behalf of the king makers, Oba Gbadamosi Adebimpe noted that, “Ibadan had never been destroyed and it shall not be destroyed. We thank the Governor. He is a true-born of Ibadan and I pray that he will never be put to shame. It is now that I can sleep soundly. Everybody can now see that our Kabiyesi is hale and hearty”.

Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Chief Ayorinde, had told the Olubadan designate that the governor’s representatives which included the first woman Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, the Oyo State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Segun Olayiwola, were sent by the governor to greet him noting that the governor also promised that he, too, would come to visit him when he returned from his trip outside the state.

Other chiefs with Oba Olakulehin were Oba Abiodun Kola-Daisi (Asipa Olubadan); Oba Eddy Oyewale (Osi Olubadan); Oba Gbadamosi Adebimpe (Osi Balogun); and Oba Kola Adegbola (Asipa Balogun Olubadan).
