The Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, says a new Olubadan would be installed soon, as he has received and approved the nomination of Owolabi Olakulehin as the 43rd monarch of the historic city of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Governor Makinde made this disclosure in an address at the final burial rites for late Lekan Balogun, the 42nd Olubadan.

He declared that the late Olubadan of Ibadanland, Mohood Lekan Balogun, lived a fulfilled life and would be remembered fondly for his contributions to the growth and development of Ibadan and Oyo State.

The governor stated this at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, Ibadan during the state burial organised in honour of the late Oba Dr. Balogun, who represented Oyo Central District in the Senate between 1999 and 2003.
