Olubadan-designate, Oba Olakulehin to go into seclusion as traditional rites begin

The Olubadan-designate, Oba Owolabi Olakulehin, will soon go into seclusion to begin the traditional rites ahead of his coronation as the 43rd Olubadan.

Sources revealed that the State Government will announce the date for the coronation soon.

For this reason, the new monarch is set to embark on the necessary preparations that tradition demands.

This development followed the State Government’s approval of the nomination of Oba Olakulehin by the Olubadan in Council in April this year. The approval was granted 10 weeks after the Ibadan kingmakers appointed Olakulehin.

Following the approval, preparations commenced in earnest for the new king’s coronation as the Olakulehin family begun the sale of the ceremonial fabric popularly called ‘aso ebi’ for the occasion.

Also, about a fortnight ago, the Olubadan-designate, accompanied by members of the Central Council of Ibadan indigenes (CCII), inspected the newly built ultra-modern Olubadan Palace to see the level of work done as he gets set to ascend the throne.
