Makinde Dethrones Over 20 Kings, Removes Their Crown

No fewer than 20 Obas have lost their crowns and positions after the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde. Many people have interpreted the move as a retaliatory one against former governor Abiola Ajimobi.

Amosun had created the over 20 Oba traditional stools in the build-up to the governorship election in the state. Many people criticized the creation of new Obas as a political move ahead of the governorship election which Ajimobi’s candidate lost.

According to current Governor Seyi Makinde, the creation of the new Obas was unconstitutional and therefore he sought their dissolution.

While some Oyo residents see Makinde as trying to reform the state and bring about massive development, others see him as a vindictive person seeking to score cheap political points by tarnishing the achievements of his predecessors.
