ICYMI: Oyo set for Olubadan’s coronation, buries Balogun June 1

The Oyo State Government has fixed Saturday, June 1, 2024, for the state burial ceremony of the immediate-past Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun.

The development will be the first in line of activities for the coronation of the Olubadan-designate, Oba Owolabi Olakulehin, according to The PUNCH.

It was reported that the seat became vacant following the demise of Oba Balogun, who joined his ancestors at the age of 81 after a two-year reign.

The state burial for the late Oba Balogun is billed to take place at the main bowl of the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, in Ibadan, the state capital.

It was further learnt that the coronation date would be officially announced immediately after the burial ceremony of the late Oba Balogun.

The Ibadan kingmakers, last month, had forwarded the name of Oba Olakulehin as the next Olubadan of Ibadanland to Governor Seyi Makinde, through the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

Investigations further revealed that necessary arrangements had been put in place to ensure a hitch-free coronation ceremony.

Also, the newly-built multimillion-naira Olubadan Palace at Oke Aremo, in the Ibadan North Local Government Area of the state, would be inaugurated two days before a yet-to-be-fixe.
