The Olubadan-in-Council has said there is no contention as to who the successor of the late Olubadan, will be, following the existing patterns of succession according to custom.


Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, and former governor of Oyo state, Rashidi Ladoja, made this announcement shortly after a closed-door meeting with the Olubadan-designate, Owolabi Olakulehin, at his Alalubosa residence in Ibadan.


Ladoja explained that the departed monarch came from the Otun line, the next monarch will be from the Balogun line, noting that the head of the Balogun line is the Balogun of Ibadanland, who has become the Olubadan-designate.


According to him, there is no date yet for the coronation of new Olubadan, but the date shall be announced as soon as the burial rite for the late king is completed.
