GOVERNOR Abiola Ajimobi has said the state government will appeal Friday’s judgement of Justice Olajumoke Aiki which nullified the processes leading to the installation of 21 kings of Ibadan land.

Ajimobi stated this while commissioning a block of classroom, donated by Chief Akin Olujimi (SAN) to Community Secondary School, Ajara, Ibadan, on Friday.
He argued that the review of the Olubadan Chieftaincy Declaration of 1959 and eventual installation of 21 Ibadan Obas was meant to uplift the status of Ibadan in the comity of states.
“Today’s judgement on the Olubadan Chieftaincy review will be appealed immediately. We have embarked upon the exercise, not for a joke, but for the good of Ibadan and the people therein.
“We will not relent in making Ibadan great and the greatness shall come from various ways, one of which is the review exercise. You should not expect people to accept change and radical policy for that matter, but we shall get there. We will not allow the forces of retrogression to overtake the progress Oyo State is making,” Ajimobi said.
