FORMER Lagos State Governor, and All Progressive Congress (APC), national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has expelled talk making the rounds in a few quarters that he dismisses a chieftaincy title offered him by the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, Ajeogungunniso I.
In an statement by his media group yesterday, Tinubu rebuked the claim that has gotten conspicuousness through the chatter segment of a national daily paper.
The previous representative said he held the Ibadan ruler in a high regard and couldn’t have rejected a chieftaincy offer from him.
The ex-senator in the announcement stated: “The Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, is one traditional ruler I have tremendous respect for. I was there in Ibadan last year for his installation.
“I hold him in high esteem. Governor Abiola Ajimobi also has respect for him. Why would I reject the offer of a chieftaincy title from him?,” he asked.
