Less than 7 months in office, the Olubadan of Ibadan, Ọba Sálíù Àkànmú Ọlásùpò Adétúnjí, Ajé Ògúngúnnísò 1 yesterday, conferred the title of Ààrẹ Jagunmólú of Ibadanland on Engr. Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State.
Oba Adetunji made this known when he visited the Government House for a reception held in honour of Makinde by the Ibadan Progressive Union.
The formal installation is expected to be done at a convenient date to be announced by the palace.
Makinde later made it known in a Facebook post.
