Incoming Olubadan Says He Wept Bitterly When Predecessor Died, Yet He Is Grateful He Will Ascend The Throne

The incoming Olubadan of Ibadan, Balogun Saliu Adetunji, has disclosed to a PM News correspondent that he wept bitterly when he heard that his predecessor, the late Oba Odulana Odugade 1 had joined his ancestors.

According to him, “this is the last thing I expect at this moment. I had never thought that Oba Odugade will leave us now that we have started preparing for his 102 birthday anniversary.

“Can we question God? No, we can’t and so we have to accept whatever God brings our way.”

As regards the relationship that existed between the duo, the incoming monarch said, “We had very good relationship. He was a good father. He was a good man. He was a good king. He was too good. He guided us well when he was on earth. We will surely miss him. I pray that God will console us in Ibadan and we will continue from where he stopped. We will continue with the agitation for the creation of Ibadan State.”

He said he was grateful to God to see today saying, “If anybody says that I will become Olubadan, I will not believe the person but now I know God is great and will serve him for the rest of my life.”
