Soun didn’t turn down Makinde’s bid to renovate Ogbomoso palace – Taiwo Adisa


By Peter Ayoade

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Oyo State, Mr. Taiwo Adisa has debunked the rumour going viral that the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Jimoh Oyewumi Ajagungbade III rejected Makinde’s offer to renovate Ogbomoso palace, adding that it was the handiwork of the opposition party in the state.

Taiwo Adisa, in a press release issued on Wednesday revealed that the Soun of Ogbomosoland, Oba Jimoh Oyewumi Ajagungbade III, has denied the content of a letter purportedly authorised by him, which rejected the financial contribution of the Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde in the planned renovation of the monarch’s palace vandalised by hoodlums during the #EndSARS protest on October 10.

According to him, he said the Soun spoke with him that he did not authorise the said letter in circulation.

“If your boss sees any such letter, he should ignore it, because I didn’t ask anyone to write such a letter,” Adisa quoted the Kabiesi.

The governor’s media aide further said: “I’ve spoken to His Royal Majesty, the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Oyewumi Ajagungbade III, who totally denounced the said letter and its contents.

“The Soun said that he never authorised anyone to issue a letter on his behalf and that if any such letter surfaces, some persons must have forged his signature.

“The Soun said he wholeheartedly welcomes the intervention of Governor Seyi Makinde in the plan to fix the palace and all the damaged items.”
