It advocated the introduction of second-class Obaship in Ibadanland, saying “this is a positive way to reduce the steps to be climbed by a prospective Olubadan.”

The council, in a memorandum to the Secretary of the Judicial Commission of Enquiry on the Review of the Olubadan Chieftaincy Panel, signed by the Chairman of the Council’s Succession Reform Commission, Chief John Babatunde Soares as well as Chief Asimiyu Adepoju and Chief Isiaka, insisted that “this is the only way to ensure speedy and accelerated development in Ibadanland as well as enhance the image of Olubadan stool.”

“Under the proposal, the Olubadan of Ibadanland will be the only first- class Oba and he will be addressed as His Imperial Majesty, while the High Chiefs will become second-class Obas in their administrative areas and be addressed as His Royal Majesty,” the Council added.

Saying the Council was formed over 70 years ago, the signatories said in the memorandum that the Abese, Maye, Ekefa, Agbaakin and Jagun will be in Otun Olubadan line and the Balogun line will comprise Abese, Maye, Ekefa, Agbaakin, Aare Alaasa and Jagun.
