Club 22/33 is a group of leaders of thoughts from Ibarapa, Oyo, Oke Ogun and Ogbomoso geo- political zone in Oyo state advocating for justice and equity in allocation of resources positions and others in the state.

According to a statement signed by its Cordinator Comrade Olajide Adeyemi , the activities of a self acclaimed Ibadan elders on issues concerning allocation of position and resources in Oyo state unacceptable and insulting to other zones who are also entitle to the same resources and positions

“On Iyaloja General of Oyo state, It is a known fact that Princess Azeezat Folashade Nurudeen Abeo, was duely installed as the Iyaloja of Oyo state by the late Alaafin of Oyo Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi 111 on the 26th April, 2021.

She was nominated by Oyo state Market leader’s joint working committee and letters were transmitted to appropriate authorities including the government for approval which was done without any hinderances only for the conflict entrepreneur who believe in domineering power of ibadan to raise another candidate and began a forlon war’

“We are aware that the traditional rulers including the late Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Soliu Akanmu Adetunji, and other stakeholders agreed that Iyaloja should come from another town from the state, since Babaloja is from Ibadan and they all supported the installation of Pricess Azeezat Folashade Abeo as the Iyaloja General.”

Princess Abeo’s selection as Iyaloja General was approved by 8 out of the 12 various cluster groups including artisans, technician, traders and others, and it was communicated through a letter signed by Market leaders joint committee under the leadership of Alhaja Iyadunni of food canteen to the office of chairman Oyo state traditional council, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi of blessed memory who acted base on their demand with full support of other traditional rulers.

They maintained that it is insensitive and wickedness on the part of the anti-abeo’s team to be projecting another Ibadan person which has produced the current Babaloja, Asiwaju Oloja and 10 among the 12 presidents as the new Iyaloja General of the state when it was already agreed that both Iyaloja and Babaloja cannot come from the same city or town in the state.

“Obviously, those projecting Alhaja Saratu Konibaje as Iyaloja against the already installed Folasahade Nurudeen Abeo are not just mischievous but also desperate to destroy the legacies of the highly revered traditional rulers who installed her.

“It is quite unfortunate that some group of conflict entrepreneurs who for pecuniary benefit and selfish interest now belief the decision of the highly revered traditional rulers who endorsed and installed Abeo as Iyaloja General of the state should no longer hold because they have joined their ancestors.”

“The question begging for answer is where were this jesters when the late Alaafin and other over 18 traditional rulers install Alhaja Folasade Nurudeen Abeo as Iyaloja General of Oyo state? Why are they desperate about retaining Iyaloja position to Ibadan when it is obvious that Iyaloja General is not among the policy makers or High chief in Ibadan, what exactly is their interest, they should tell their paymaster the truth and disengage from the beer parlour statement on Iyaloja’s position.

“The group also called on Governor Oluseyi Makinde to continue to ensure equity and justice in allocation of resources and positions as well as maintaining peace and orderliness in the state.”

“Governor Makinde is not sentimental about issues, he was aware of the whole process and he didn’t object to Abeo’s installation as a governor who belief in equity and justice, we are calling him to ensure Princess Azeezat Folashade Nurudeen Abeo is officially recognized as Iyaloja General of the state and also stop those causing confusion to stop misleading the public.

“We however want to implore the so called faceless Ibadan elders and VVIPs to stop using eminent and responsible people’s name in projecting their forlon agenda”
