Akeredolu, Dapo Abiodun quarrel over traditional ruler installation


Two governors from the southwestern part of Nigeria, Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state and his counterpart in Ondo, Rotimi Akeredolu, are on a collision path over the approval and planned installation of traditional rulers in 4 communities on border towns.

The communities affected included Irokun, Obinehin, Idigbengben and Araromi seaside.

The Ogun state commissioner for information and strategy, Waheed Odusile, said the 4 communities fall within the state territory.

Last week, the Ondo state government released White Paper on Obas’ Elevation and recognition in about 60 communities, including Irokun, Obinehin, Idigbengben and Araromi Seaside.

The state’s attorney general and commissioner for justice, Charles Tititloye, said in a statement that the white paper followed the recommendations of Justice Ajama’s judicial commission of inquiry into deserving cases of recognition, adjustment, upgrading, and elevation of chieftaincy stools in the state.

Titilayo added that the panel was set up and inaugurated by Olusegun Mimiko, the immediate past administration in the state, on January 30, 2015, but the government could not implement the report before Mimiko’s tenure expired in February 2017.

In his reaction on Wednesday, September 21, Odusile, countered the position of the Ondo state government, adding that the affected communities fall within the Ogun Waterside local government in the state.

He stressed that the position of the Ondo state government has:

“Expectedly been generating concern within these peace-loving communities in Ogun State.”

The commissioner then calls on the national boundary commission to take action in line with the extant laws and relevant documents.
