Governor Abiola Ajimobi installed twenty-one newly elevated High Chiefs in Oyo State at the historic Mapo Hall in Ibadan on Sunday.

The Osi Olubadan of Ibadan land, Rashidi Ladoja who had contested the governor’s action in court , wasn’t present at the ceremony.

While explaining the rationale behind the mass installation of new chiefs, the governor said

“We are elevating the Olubadan and promoting the Olubadan-in-Council members without altering the Olubadan succession arrangement.

“We will never disparage or relegate the status of the Olubadan of Ibadanland.
“What we have done is an elevation of the Olubadan to Imperial Majesty and members of the Olubadan-in-Council to His Royal Majesties,’’ he said.

The elevated members of the Olubadan-in-Council who were present to receive their instruments of office were the Otun Olubadan of Ibadan land, Senator Lekan Balogun; the Ashipa Olubadan of Ibadan land, Eddy Oyewole; the Balogun of Ibadan land, Owolabi Olakuleyin; the Osi Balogun of Ibadan land, Tajudeen Ajibola; Asipa Balogun of Ibadan land, Latifu Adebimpe; Ekarun Balogun of Ibadan land, Dr. Kolawole Adegbola; Ekerin Olubadan of Ibadan land, Abiodun Kola-Daisi; and the Ekarun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Amidu Ajibade.

The newly elevated Obas passed through spiritual rites before receiving their staff of office from Ajimobi.
