Former Lagos State Governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has given a lie to speculation in some quarters that he rejected a chieftaincy title from the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, Ajeogungunniso I.
A report in the gossip column of a national newspaper had claimed that Tinubu turned down the conferment of the chieftaincy title of Balogun on him by Oba Adetunji.
In a statement released on Monday by the Tinubu Media Office, the former Lagos State Governor said he holds the Olubadan of Ibadan in very high esteem and could not have rejected a chieftaincy offer from him.
He said in the statement: “The Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, is one traditional ruler I have tremendous respect for. I was there in Ibadan last year for his installation.
“I hold him in high esteem. Governor Abiola Ajimobi also has respect for him. Why I would I reject the offer of a chieftaincy title from him?”
