The Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes, (CCII) has submitted that the fifth columnist has been put to shame as all the issues surrounding the enthronement of the 43rd Olubadan of Ibadanland have been resolved.

 

The President of the CCII, Chief Wole Akinwande said the issues surrounding the enthronement of the new monarch and the reported lingering crisis among the kingmakers have been finally resolved.

High Chief Rasidi Ladoja will on Thursday convey the meeting of the Olubadan in Council for the nomination of the Olubadan designate, Oba Owolabi Olakulehin as the 43rd Olubadan of Ibadanland.

Chief Wole Akinwande said the aggrieved kingmakers have resolved to put the past behind them and work together as one for the common interest of Ibadanland.

This formed part of the resolution of the meeting that was conveyed by the leadership of the CCII in conjunction with the elders held at the Ikolaba residence of Chief Bode Amao on Monday.

The meeting, according to Akinwande, had in attendance all the kingmakers except Otun Balogun of Ibadanland, Oba Tajudeen Ajibola and Ekerin Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Hamidu Ajibade Salaudeen.
