OBASANJO-OLUWO-OF-IWOFormer President Olusegun Obasanjo has described as unnecessary, the superiority tussle among Yoruba monarchs, saying the trend is a distraction that could lead to setbacks.
Rather than engaging in such contests, Mr. Obasanjo advised the traditional rulers to make good governance and welfare for their subjects the foundation of their reign.
The ex-president, who spoke when he played host to the new Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, at his hilltop mansion in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital yesterday, harped on mutual respect for one another instead of claiming superiority.
Hierarchical struggle, according to Obasanjo is a distraction which could result in setback.
“I think that what is more important is to give good governance to the citizens and also have mutual respect for ourselves,” he said.
In his response, Oba Adetunji commended the ex-president for his role in his emergence as the 41st Olubadan.
