Ibadan Chief Calls for Unity Among Mogajis

2 min read

Professor Abiodun Gbolagade, a prominent Ibadan chief and the Mogaji of Lato Compound in Oke-Labo, Ibadan, has called for unity among the Mogaji leaders in Ibadanland. He emphasized the importance of setting aside their differences and coming together to advance the progress and development of Ibadanland.

Addressing the gathering at the residence of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Gbolagade stressed the need to eliminate any divisions or factions among the Mogaji, as they symbolize various compounds and have the potential to ascend to the prestigious position of Olubadan.

Gbolagade underscored the fundamental role of a Mogaji, which is to champion the preservation and enhancement of Ibadanland’s heritage while collaborating closely with the Olubadan to implement his policies.

Responding to a query concerning the hierarchy between Mogaji and Baale, Gbolagade clarified that Mogaji holds a position of greater prominence and significance in the future. He firmly asserted that Baale cannot aspire to become Olubadan, establishing a clear distinction between the two roles.

“In matters of seniority, there is no room for debate between Mogaji and Baale. Mogaji stands higher than Baale, and only Mogaji has the potential to ascend to the esteemed position of Olubadan. Baale cannot attain that rank,” he reaffirmed.”
