Ibadan, the ancient city in Nigeria, witnessed the inauguration of the new executive council of the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) this weekend. The ceremony, held at Ibadan House Oke Aremo, Ye­metu Axis, drew notable dignitaries, including Chief (Mrs) Mutiat Lado­ja, Mogaji Adanla, and Professor Taoheed Adedoja, among others.

The swearing-in ceremony marked the official handover of responsibilities from the outgoing president-general, Prince Oluyemisi Adeaga, to Barr. Sulaimon Ajew­ole. Additionally, Mr. Adetokunbo Subair assumed the position of secretary-general, as he took the oath of office.

Amidst the celebrations and well-wishes, Chief (Mrs) Mutiat Lado­ja, the Maye Iyalode of Ibadanland, lauded the newly inaugurated executive council. She expressed confidence in their ability to fulfill their mandate and build on the achievements of previous administrations.

Barr. Sulaimon Ajew­ole, in his address to the press and attendees, outlined the council's vision for the coming years. One of the paramount goals is the completion of the official palace of the Olubadan, the revered traditional ruler of Ibadan. This longstanding structure, steeped in history, will finally receive the attention it deserves.

He stated, "It is an honor, but I see this as a responsibility that I must face and succeed in. A good foundation has been laid for us to build on, so we are poised to give CCII a leadership that will enhance our greater growth and development."

Furthermore, the president-general emphasized the council's commitment to empowering the youth of Ibadan. By collaborating with the government and investors, CCII intends to facilitate projects that will provide gainful employment opportunities for the younger generation.

Speaking about the cultural values of Ibadanland, Barr. Ajewole assured that the council would promote the supremacy of the institution of Olubadan-in-council. This commitment reflects CCII's dedication to preserving the rich heritage and customs that define the indigenes of Ibadan.

Before the inauguration, Prince Oluyemisi Adeaga expressed his gratitude to the council members for their unwavering support during his tenure. He also highlighted some of the notable achievements of the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes under his leadership.

The CCII's new executive council, led by Barr. Sulaimon Ajew­ole, now stands ready to steer the association's affairs for the next three years. With their focus on completing the Olubadan's palace and empowering the youth, Ibadan can look forward to a period of growth, development, and preservation of its cultural heritage.
