Vacancies In Otun Olubadan Line With Oyelade’s Death As Olagoke Becomes Most Preferred

With the death of Ekefa Olubadan of Ibadanland, Chief Lateef Oyelade, 15 vacancies now exist in the Otun line of the Olubadan Chieftaincy system,  We can report.

Ibadan chieftaincy system is unique because of its two lines of succession— Otun (civil) and Balogun (military).

Apart from hundreds of Mogajis who will jostle to enter the Jagun line, which is the entry point to the lines, 15 chiefs will have their titles changed.

Queuing behind the deceased senior chiefs were Agba-Akin, Aare Alasa, Ikolaba, Asaaju, Ayingun, Aare Ago, Lagunna, Oota, Aare Egbe Omo, Gbonnka, Aare Onibon, Bada, Ajia and Jagun

We authoritatively gather that prominent among the senior chiefs to be promoted are Yekinni Adeojo, Ismail Akinade Fijabi, Saka Fola Lapade, Teslim Folarin, Muibi Ademola Adewuyi, Rauf Yesufu Delesolu, Ahmed Olatunji Lanihun, Dauda Kolawole Gbadamosi, William Oyeleke Akande, Oluyinka Akande, Taofeek Ogunwale, Wasiu Aderoju Alaadorin, Muyiwa Makinde and Abiola Iyiola who was the last mogaji to be elevated to Jagun.

Founder of Shafaudeen, Prof. Sabit Ariyo Olagoke JP  , Other Mogajis to compete  For Jagunship

Though the Olubadan has the final say on who enters the Jagun line from among the Mogajis, many believe that Prof.  Olagoke should be considered. 

Olagoke, whose anticidents in the religion and education sectors can not be forgotten in a hurry , is the mogaji of Ogun -Elu, Aare Alasa dynasty of Ibadan South East local government.

 His philanthropic gesture  has earned him accolades from within and far.  recalls that the Central Council of Ibadan Indedegenes CCII recently conferred on him their highest honour during the reign of the immediate past Olubadan, Ọba Saliu Adetunji . 

Apart from been a cleric Prof. Olagoke has impacted positively into the lives of Nigerian youths both at home and internationally through his career as a lecturer  most especially Ibadan Indegenes which has earned him several awards and recognition both in Nigeria and abroad. 

Prof. Olagoke has produced many engineers and scholars which spread around the world. 

There are many other notable mogajis who, in the coming days, will start jostling.

The promotion and installation is usually done 21 days after the demise of a chief.
