The Otun Olubadan, Oba Lekan Balogun, has maintained that the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji was duly notified about the grand reception organized by the Olubadan-in council for outgoing governor Abiola Ajimobi.
Saying that the monarch was invited, Oba Balogun said that what came to their mind when it became obvious that the monarch was not going to grace the occasion was that the Ramadan fast may have weakened him and there might be need for him to rest since he is of age. In his word:
“Olubadan was duly notified by members of the Olubadan-in-Council of the plan to organise a grand reception for the outgoing governor in appreciation of his contributions to Ibadanland.”
“We observe that his absence might be unconnected with the Ramadan fast, because there might be need for him to take a rest as an old person.”
Recalled that in recent times, Oba  Adetunji  had on several occasions refrained from attending events where the eleven Ibadan High Chiefs recently elevated to beaded crown monarchs by the Governor Abiola Ajimobi administration are present.
