An almost two decade royal rivalry between the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, Aje Ogungunniso I, and the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi ended, on Tuesday, October 11, as the Olubadan and members of his council visited Oba Adeyemi in his palace at Oyo town.
Oba Adetunji explained that the main purpose of his visit was to thank Alaafin for his presence at his coronation on Friday March 4, 2016, at the Mapo Hall Arcade, Ibadan.
He also disclosed that the visit was to strengthen the cord of unity that binds the two ancient cities together and to promote unity among the Yoruba traditional rulers.
He then prayed for more fruitful years for the Alaafin and himself on the thrones which their ancestors bestowed on them.
While responding, Oba Adeyemi said he had no problem with the Olubadan describing their relationship as being cordial.
On the entourage of Oba Adetunji were Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Senator Lekan Balogun; Balogun of Ibadanland, Chief Owolabi Olakuleyin; Otun Balogun, Dr. Olufemi Olaifa; Osi Balogun, Chief Tajudeen Ajibola; Asipa Olubadan, Chief Eddy Oyewole; Ekerin Olubadan, Chief Abiodun Kola-Daisi; Ekerin Balogun, Chief Gbadamosi Adebimpe; Ekarun Olubadan, Chief Hamidu Ajibade.
