Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State on Wednesday said there is no conflict surrounding the Olubadan stool.

Makinde charged those sowing discord over the stool to desist in the interest of the state.

He spoke while welcoming Muslim faithful, including members of his cabinet and other high-ranking government officials, to his Ikolaba residence in Ibadan, the state capital.

The governor also said he was yet to receive any official communication from the Olubadan-in-Council on nomination for the stool.


He wondered why some people were focusing on things that divide the state along traditional lines, saying there’s no place for that under his watch.

Kingmakers in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, had fixed Thursday, 11th April as the date for the official ratification and announcement of the current Balogun of Ibadanland, Owolabi Akinloye Olakulehin, as the new Olubadan of Ibadanland.

The kingmakers made this decision at a meeting held on Monday at the Iwo Road residence of a former President of Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII), Chief Bode Amao.

DAILY POST reports that the kingmakers in Ibadan are the eleven High Chiefs who are also members of Olubadan-in-Council.
