Following the ongoing uproars concerning the agitation for the creation of Oduduwa Republic out of Nigeria, the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji has said Yorubaland cannot just decide to be out of Nigera without consulting with the ancestors.
Olubadan made this known through his spokesperson, Adeola Oloko, Speaking with BBCNewsYoruba, he said Kabiyesi Olubadan would like everyone to know that the intention to create Oduduwa Republic needed deep thinking and consultations across board.
It would be recalled that Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egba Land, Oba Adedotun Àrèmú Gbadebo recently said in his release, the Olubadan of Ibadan also made it clear that the agitation for the creation of Oduduwa Republic goes beyond an individual or a personal interest.
He said, “I don’t want people to misinterpret Kabiyesi’s perspective concerning the creation of Oduduwa Republic, but agitating for the creation of Oduduwa Republic is beyond anyone, Kabiyesi Olubadan is not saying Sunday Igboho is not fighting good cause, but it should be well thought out”.
“Sunday Igboho is a bonafide Yoruba, he always visit the Palace of Olubadan of Ibadan, but he has his fundamental rights to say his opinions and views about anything.
