The Olubadan-in-Council has announced that the coronation ceremony of the Olubadan-elect, Dr Lekan Balogun might be before the second week in March, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
Speaking during the council’s maiden meeting held at the Alarere residence of the Olubadan-designate, the Otun Balogun of Ibadanland, High Chief Tajudeen Ajibola noted that this decision was based on consideration for both incoming Ibadan festival and Ramadan which will hold very soon.
His words: “Olubadan has to make a very significant presence at the annual Ibadan Week Festival and having perfected everything necessary for Dr. Balogun’s emergence, we are working to ensure that he features at the programme as the substantive Olubadan.
“Again, we are conscious of Ramadan fast and would not want to put our guests under unnecessary pressure by holding the inauguration during the period. All these we considered at the meeting but could not make anything categorical until we meet with the governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde.”
