The Balogun of Ibadanland, High Chief Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, has said his first agenda as Olubadan is to ensure speedy creation of Ibadan state.

He spoke at his Popoyemoja palace on Tuesday while receiving visitors among whom are the leaders of the Ibadan Elders’ Forum, Oluyole Club of Lagos, Onisese Osemeji Ibadan, Old Students of Ibadan Grammar School, Fuji Musicians Association of Nigeria (FUMAN), Baale Elewura and other groups and associations that came to greet him.

Adetunji, who spoke in Yoruba, declared that he was persuaded by the likes of Chief Omiyale, Alhaji Lamidi Adedibu and other Ibadan elders to succumb to the pressure to become Mogaji of his family and later became Jagun Balogun passing through 23 steps to become Olubadan -designate.

He said moves to ensure creation of Ibadan state started in 1976, adding that several efforts had been made to ensure it came to past.

The Olubadan- designate, who declared that he was prosperous in his music promotion business in Lagos and other cities both at home and abroad, said what he has achieved since 1976 when he became the Mogaji could only be achieved by someone who depends on God only.

“The creation of Ibadan state is my first priority, we have gone to Abuja about three times. The person who was there before promised, we will continue to fight for it, and I believe it will be achieved during my tenure.

“I will be happy when Ibadan state is created for the development of Ibadanland.”
