He said that he held the Ibadan monarch in a very high esteem and could not have rejected a chieftaincy offer from him.

The ex-governor in the statement said: “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.
