SINCE the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, ascended the throne of his forefathers, one would have expected the Oyo State government to tar the road leading to the palace of the monarch. The terrible condition in which the road is now does not show that it leads to the palace of the foremost royal father in Ibadan.
As the father of everybody in the state capital, many important dignitaries across the country have been visiting the palace, and it does not speak well of us that this is how the road leading to the Olubadan’s palace is. Consequently, I am calling on the state governor, under the leadership of Senator Abiola Ajimobi, to quickly start work on the rehabilitation of the road leading to the palace. It is also important that prominent Ibadan sons and daughters prevail on the state governor to rehabilitate this road immediately, as it will go a long way in positively projecting our royal father in the eyes of non-indigenes.
