The governor of Oyo, Abiola Ajimobi met with President Muhammad Buhari in a closed-door meeting, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja over the crisis surrounding Olubadan throne.

- The Olubadan said he strongly opposes the Chieftancy review and its recommendations.
- The Olubadan sued the governor, alongside 23 others.
- Governor Ajimobi promised he would not depose the Olubadan despite “triggers”.
