Olubadan Advisory Council has summoned the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes’ (CCII) and the contractor handling the construction of the new Olubadan’s palace at OkeAremo, over the slow pace of the project.
CCII is the umbrella body of all the socio-cultural groups in the ancient city. The construction of the new palace is under the supervision of the CCII and had lasted for over a decade.
In a statement issued by the Personal Assistant on Media to the Olubadan, OladeleOgunsola, on Saturday, the council through the OtunBalogun of Ibadan land, High Chief TajudeenAjibola, expressed dismay at the level of work done on the project which he described as “non-starter.”
According to High Chief Ajibola, “last December was the latest date given by the CCII as the completion date and when it would be ready for occupation by the Olubadan. The December date was not the first of such promise, mind you. This time, Olubadan decided to visit the palace to see things for himself and we joined him, but what we saw was a far cry from the promise made by the CCII through its president-general, Prince OluyemisiAdeaga.”
“We are not pleased by what we saw here today. As against the promise of moving to the palace last December, which was not possible, the work is a non-starter. At least, if at all the last December date was not feasible as we had all seen, there must be signs that, well, certain things made such impossible and one can be confident that, oh, in a couple of weeks’ time, the job would be completed.
The high chief, however, explained that the CCII had disclosed that the contractor handling the project was responsible for the slow pace of work.
