The Chairman of the council, Oba Adekunle Aromolaran Owa Obokun Adimula, stated this at the meeting of the council held in Osogbo, the state capital.
According to him, “Traditional council of Oba in the state has discussed the invitation at the meeting and noted with one voice that if the council did not receive invitation to grace the ceremony, they would not attend the presentation of staff of office to the new Ooni.”
He averred that as at now, the council has not yet been contacted by letter of invitation, adding that: “We don’t move anyhow, we are fathers not children.”
Meanwhile, the Traditional Council of Obas has also unanimously adopted the Owa Obokun, Adimula of Ijesa Kingdom, Oba Adekunle Aromolaran, as the chairman of the council during their council meeting.
