Shittu Disassociates Self From Oyo Obaship Brouhaha


The Minister of Communications, Barrister Adebayo Shittu has disassociated himself from the face-off between Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State and the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji over the newly installed Obas by the governor.

Many stakeholders have been expecting the governorship aspirant to speak out his mind on the issue but he has continued to keep a sealed lip.

Reliable sources in the know, however, have it that the minister doesn’t want his stand to be made known.

This is despite the belief from many quarters that he is a close pal of the governor but the situation of things seems to be on the contrary.

The situation has, however, led to the decrease in the governor’s popularity as most of the people have backed the position taken by the Olubadan.
