Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has explained that the review of the Ibadan Chieftaincy Law was not aimed at disrespecting the office of Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji.
He noted that the alleged discord between him and the traditional ruler was the antics of mischief makers.
The governor made the disclosure at the 60th anniversary of his Alma matter, Lagelu Grammar School, Ibadan, where the Olubadan was also in attendance.
He declared that the monarch would always remain his father.
Ajimobi argued that mischievous people had misconstrued his intention in the process of reviewing the Ibadan Chieftaincy Law of 1957, as a witch-hunt on the person of the Olubadan.
He dismissed the insinuation as being mischievous and unfounded.

“Baba is a younger brother to my late father and he is also my father. But I will do what I am supposed to do as a governor.”
