Our Visit to Odole Oodua not political- Olu Ipebi Ijebu Mushin

The Olu Ipebi ijebu Mushin and the general secretary, G-75 Coronet Obas, Oba Tanimowo Folarin said their visit to the Odole Oodua is not political.

The Monarch disclosed this in statement issued to newsmen in Abeokuta,Ogun State Capital.

 The statement reads "Our attention has been drawn to a publication going around that the visit of some traditional rulers who are members of the G-75 Coronet Obas to Odole Oodua is political.                                           
"I wish to state that Odole Oodua, Sir Keshington Adebutu, is a respected high chief, who has bagged several chieftaincy titles not only in Ogun state, but all the states in the south west from traditional rulers because of his philanthropic gestures to humanities.                              

"Sir Keshington Adebutu only invited the traditional rulers for the new year celebration, an annual celebration in Iperu, Ogun state.              

"Odole Oodua is a reverred high chief who will never invite any traditional ruler to a political meeting and as traditional rulers, we are not politicians and we remain so.                             
 "The visit of these traditional rulers is purely an arrangement that has been put in place for a very long time which cannot be turned down because of the pedigree of the personality of Sir Keshington Adebutu.            
"As our constitutional roles, traditional rulers should not be seen or heard to be political, instead they should be seen to be protecting the traditional heritage.                                            
"We remain apolotical, very committed and loyal to the present administration and as well renewed our pledge to continue to support the state government to succeed in its policies and programmes".
