Saliu Adetunji, olubadan of Ibadan, says the performance of Abiola Ajimobi, governor of Oyo state, makes him deserving of another term in office.

Ajimobi became governor in 2011 and is presently in his second term in office. His tenure will lapse in 2019.

The monarch, whose power was almost diminished by the governor until a court ruling recently, said on Thursday that he “would have loved him [Ajimobi] to go for another term” but it goes against the constitution.

He said this during a meeting between the governor and traditional rulers in Oyo state.

The olubadan said: “Yoruba don’t appreciate themselves except to abuse and criticise but when someone has done well, we must say it,” he said.

“I am talking about what I have seen so far. In view of this, I would have loved him to go for another term if not that the constitution does not allow it.

“The governor has performed very well. He has recorded unprecedented achievements worthy of commendation. This is the only way to spur him into greater performance for the benefit of the whole state.”

The monarch’s commendation of the governor is coming after an Ibadan high court had recently annulled the review of the 1957 olubadan chieftaincy declaration.

The ruling was the latest development in a tug of war that emanated after the governor installed 21 new kings against the wish of the olubadan.
