Oba Adetunji explained that the purpose of his visit was to thank Alaafin for his presence at his coronation on Friday March 4, 2016, at the Mapo Hall Arcade, Ibadan.
He also disclosed that the visit was to strengthen the cord of unity that binds the two ancient cities together and to promote unity among the Yoruba traditional rulers. While responding, Oba Adeyemi said he had no problem with the Olubadan, describing their relationship as being cordial.
The monarch promised more cordial relationships between the people of Ibadanland and Oyo Kingdom in the future, noting that his relationship with Oba Adeyemi dated back during the days of his coronation in 1971. He prayed for more fruitful years for the Alaafin and himself on the thrones which their ancestors bestowed on them. Oba Adeyemi also used the opportunity to advise those who relish in kidnapping others to refrain from doing so.
