Olubadan’s Withheld Allowance To Be Released In August



The crisis rocking the traditional council in Ibadanland may soon be over as the withheld local government allowances of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, will be paid from the end of this month.

The Ekerin Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Abiodun Kola-Daisi is expected to lead in the release of the withheld allowances.

Oba Kola-Daisi, who is the chairman of Oluyole Local Government Traditional Council in a letter addressed to Oba Kola Adegbola, Ekarun Olubadan of Ibadanland, a copy of which was made available to journalists in Ibadan yesterday, said he had instructed the secretariat of his local government [Oluyole] to go ahead and release the withheld allowances due to Oba Adetunji.

It would be recalled that all the High Chiefs promoted to beaded crown by the governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi last year following the review of the Ibadan Traditional Council and who oversee the affairs of all the local government traditional councils in Ibadanland decided to withhold their councils’ allowances to the Olubadan because of his opposition to their elevation.
