Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has advised ex-Governor Rashidi Ladoja not to dabble in governance, but should face his traditional line.
This followed a statement credited to Ladoja last weekend on the proposed review of the chieftaincy declaration of Ibadan land by the government.
Ajimobi, who addressed participants at this year’s World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, at the Governor’s Office, Ibadan, said the review was overdue, adding that Ibadan had expanded.
He said: “The population of Ibadan has increased. We believe that such as it has been done in many Yoruba cities and towns, we need to have more Obas under the Olubadan. It has been done in many states in the Southwest, such as Lagos and Ogun.
“We will do it, no going back. That was why the former Olubadan, Oba Odugade Odulana, urged people in politics to leave the traditional chieftaincy lines. I am surprised that they politicize everything in this country.”
