We’ve not received Ibadan chieftaincy review document – Oyo lawmakers
by Olamide Michael ·
Members of the Oyo State House of Assembly yesterday said they are yet to receive document concerning the controversial review of Ibadan chieftaincy system from the state government for amendment.
The lawmakers who are Ibadan indigenes stated this during a solidarity visit to the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji.
The lawmakers, who are members of the Accord Party included Fatai Adesina, representing Ibadan South-East constituency 1; Akeem Ige, representing Ibadan South-East constituency 2 who is also a member of the House Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters; Buniyamin Olasunkanmi, representing Egbeda state constituency; and Samson Olasunkanmi, representing Ona-Ara state constituency .
Adesina, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, said it was wrong for the state government to use fiat to crown new kings without approaching the House for the amendment of the old document regarding the Ibadan chieftaincy system.
Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr Toye Arulogun, who reacted to the comment, said there was no law stating that when a declaration was reviewed, it should be sent to the House for amendment.
He said Ajimobi derived the power to review the declaration from sections 10 and 25 CAP 28 of the Oyo State chieftaincy law 2000, adding however that as law abiding governor, Ajimobi would approach the House if there was the need to do so.
