We Are Not Ready For Any Meeting With Jonathan – Alaafin, Olubadan

Alaafin OyoThe Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III and the Olubadan, Oba Samuel Odulana have said that they are not aware of any planned meeting between President Goodluck Jonathan and Yoruba obas.

Sources close to the two major traditional rulers yesterday said they knew nothing about the meeting.

It was reported that  Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, would lead 22 other Obas to Presidential villa, Abuja for a meeting with Jonathan.

According to the report, the meeting was aimed at garnering the Southwest’s support for the President’s re-election in 2015.

A source close to the Alaafin said: “We are not aware of such a meeting. The promoters of such a meeting would not even invite us to follow the Ooni for a meeting. We are currently concerned with the ongoing regional integration in the Southwest.”

A source within the Olubadan-in-Council said: “The Olubadan would never queue up behind the Ooni. I doubt if the Soun of Ogbomoso was aware of the meeting. It may be an Osun State Obas affair.”
