We learnt something new about Obasanjo today

The Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Dr Sikiru Adetona, gave us a lesson in history on Sunday.

Oba Sikiru Adetona, says former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, is to thank, for making make Abeokuta, his hometown, the capital of Ogun state.

The monarch said Obasanjo used his position as Chief of Staff, Supreme Headquarters, to favour Abeokuta, a city which was never considered for Ogun State capital in 1976 when the state was created by the military administration of late General Murtala Muhammed.

Oba Adetona said this at the weekend during the turbaning ceremony of Princess Khadijat Adebisi Edionsere, as the first Iya Suna of Ogun State by the Muslims Council.

He stated:

“It is good to use your position to positively affect your people. When Ogun State was to be created, Abeokuta was not the city recommended as state capital.

But because Obasanjo was the second in command, he took the capital to Abeokuta. I don’t condemn his action, I am only saying our people should learn from that.”
