I didn’t reject chieftaincy title from Olubadan — Tinubu

LAGOS—Former Lagos state governor and All Progressive Congress, APC, national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has dismissed rumour making the rounds in some quarters that he rejected a chieftaincy title offered him by the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, Ajeogungunniso I.

In a statement by his media team yesterday, Tinubu rebuffed the claim that has received prominence through the gossip column of a national newspaper.

The former governor said he held the Ibadan monarch in a very high esteem and could not have rejected a chieftaincy offer from him.

The ex-governor in the statement said: “The Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, is one traditional ruler I have tremendous respect for. I was there in Ibadan last year for his installation.

“I hold him in high esteem. Governor Abiola Ajimobi also has respect for him. Why would I reject the offer of a chieftaincy title from him?,” he asked.
