Jonathan Pays Tribute To Late Olubadan


Former President Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has commiserated with the Government and peo­ple of Oyo State over the death of the highly revered Monarch, the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Adetunji Saliu, who passed on at the age of 93.


The former President in a condolence message to the Government of Oyo State and the people of Ibadanland expressed sad­ness over the exit of the monarch, describing him as a renowned leader and king who had the interest of his people at heart.


He said: “Olubadan was a compassionate and saga­cious traditional ruler who served as a worthy custodi­an of the custom and cul­ture of his people.”


According to Dr. Jon­athan, the late monarch will continue to “be re­membered for the way he channelled his wisdom and energy towards the growth and development of Ibadanland, serving as a sage and moral compass in his domain.”


The former President noted that Olubadan will be missed not only in Ibadan­land but across the country, because of his considerable contributions to the growth of society.
