Adetunji, 87, was crowned at about 10.51 a.m. by the 10th Oluwo Afobaje of Ibadanland, Chief Idowu Popoola. Adetunji, a doyen of the music industry and the former Balogun of Ibadanland, arrived the Oluwo Afobaje’s palace, Oja Oba, at exactly 9.52 a.m.
Adetunji, clad in the traditional Aso-Oke, arrived in a Peugeot 307 CC 180 with registration number KJA 701 DZ, to commence the traditional rites.
He was at the Oluwo Afobaje palace to undergo traditional rites as expected of a new monarch.
The new monarch left the Afobaje’s palace at exactly 10.18a.m. to the Afobaje arcade where he was crowned.
The new king, who also performed the calabash selection event, picked the Money Calabash, a reflection that his reign would depict prosperity.
Speaking at the event, Popoola, the Afobaje, described the coronation ceremony as unique in the history of Ibadan, commending Gov. Abiola Ajimobi for his support.
He also commended Globacom and producers of Eagle Aromatic Schnapps for their unflinching contributions and support to the coronation.
Popoola said that the new king became a Mogaji during his father’s reign as the Olubadan in 1976.
He said that Ibadan began to use the appellation “Olubadan of Ibadanland” under the reign of Late Oba Abas Aleshinloye in 1936.
Adetunji, the only king to be installed by an Ibadan indigene as governor, has his formal title as Oba Saliu Adetunji Aje Ogungunniso 1.
The members of the Olubadan-in-Council led by High Chief Lekan Balogun, the Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland and High Chief Rasheed Ladoja among others paid the traditional respect to the new king.
The new King left for the Ose-Meji Shrine where he was expected to undergo some other spiritual rites before proceeding to the Mapo Hall Arcade.
At the arcade was the handing over of the staff of Office to the new king by Gov. Ajimobi of Oyo State
Time To Sanction Wike Has Come, He Has Touched The Tiger’s Tail- Atiku’s Camp
For daring to call for the expulsion of the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, the camp and political associates of the former vice president has moved against Nyesom Wike, asking the NWC to discipline him.
They described Wike as a serial betrayal who formed the group of five governors that committed series of anti party activities against the PDP during the February 25 presidential election.
Director of Research and Documentation of the PDP Presidential Campaign, Dr. Pedro Obasike said,
“Wike coming out to ask for the expulsion of the number one leader of the party and the presidential flag bearer of the party and the recipient of the mandate of the Nigerian people as declared in INEC’s submission that we won 21 states and asking Atiku to be expelled from the party, Wike has crossed the red line and now, he should be ready. He has all the money to fight us back because we are coming at him like a thousand bricks.
“He has unleashed the dogs of war and we will not sit back and watch him ride rough over the party and majority of Nigerians like he did for 8 years over the humility of the Rivers people. That can no longer suffice”.
He also challenged Wike to publish his bank account when he assumed office as a governor and after his eight years tenure as the governor of Rivers state.
According to Obaseke, “Wike is a member of the APC, a sitting Minister of an APC government. Wike openly campaigned against the PDP. You see, by their fruits, we shall know them. By all intents and purposes, Wike is not a member of the PDP’ .
“If you remember clearly, just a few months to the election, Barrister Nyesom Wike, then the governor of Rivers State ran to the court to get an injunction to preclude and stop the PDP from expelling him from the party. If he was so untouchable and bigger than the entire party machinery, why did he do that? Whether we like it or not, Wike is Satan lieutenant.
