Stakeholders agree on date for coronation of new Olubadan of Ibadan
Date has been announced and confirmed for the coronation of Olubadan-designate, Saliu Adetunji, as the new Olubadan of Ibadanland. In a statement signed by Chief Adetunji’s media aide, Adeola Oloko, the coronation would hold on Friday March 4.
Adetunji confirmed the coronation date during the visit of leading musician, Ebenezer Obey, to his Popoyemoja, Ibadan, residence on Saturday. He noted that the date was arrived at after extensive consultations with stakeholders.
The Olubadan-designate said the coronation was delayed due to the burial ceremony for the late Olubadan, Samuel Odulana, who he said deserved such a befitting burial. According to him, the coronation would take place at Oja’Ba, Ibadan, where his predecessors received their staff of office.
Mr. Adetunji, however, said the venue of the reception billed for Saturday, March 5, would be announced later.
Earlier, Mr. Obey had described Mr. Adetunji as a dependable and reliable pillar in music recording, composition, promotion, advertisement and marketing. He said nothing would be too much for any musician to do to ensure the success of the Olubadan’s coronation. Mr. Obey prayed for continued peace, progress and development in Ibadanland under the new monarch.
