I never dreamt of becoming Olubadan – Oba Adetunji
Even though he was on the line to the throne, the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, has said he never dreamt of becoming a king; he added that the crowd at his coronation scared him.
Adetunji spoke in his palace on Wednesday when Bishop Wale Oke of the Sword of the Spirit Ministry visited him, said on the coronation day, he was afraid, he wept and he thought he was going to die.
“On my coronation day, I was afraid. I wept and I thought I was going to die,” he said.
He revealed that he was brought up by the late Oba Yesufu Oloyede Asanke.
“I never knew I will be Olubadan when I was under him, but years after his death, I was installed as the monarch,” he said.
In his remark, Bishop Wale Oke said he was in the palace to congratulate the Olubadan and to pray for longetivity and sound health for him.
“I came here to congratulate the Olubadan on his installation and to also let him know that he has a son among the men of God in the country,” he said.
Oke prayed that Oba Adetunji’s tenure would be prosperous, with the ancient city witnessing economic prosperity.
