The Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba SALIU ADETUNIJ, has described the crowns given to the 21 new kings in Ibadan as ones made of carton.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Director, Media and Public Affairs to the monarch, ADEOLA OLOKO, after the monarch received members of the Council of Authentic Ibadan Mogajis who paid him a solidarity visit at his palace on Tuesday.
The monarch said that he waited for 40 years before he was made a king, urging the high chiefs who were crowned king by the state government to wait for their turn to become kings.
The king also chided some Ibadan elders who allegedly said that he consented to the move by Governor ABIOLA AJIMOBI to crown new kings in the city.
The statement added, the Olubadan described as untrue and unfounded the statement credited to a group of Ibadan elders that Kabiyesi had consented to the controversial chieftaincy review embarked upon by the Oyo State Government resulting in the controversial crowning of 21 new kings.
