Olugbon of Orile Igbon, His Royal Majesty, Oba Francis Olusola Alao has said the Oyo Traditional Council will react to the ridicule that monarchs in Oyo State were subjected to by former President Olusegun Obasanjo recently at a public event.

Recall that the former President had, last week Friday, publicly berated the monarchs for not standing up when Governor Seyi Makinde was called to deliver his remarks at the commissioning of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Iseyin Campus.

Speaking on Fresh FM’s Situation Room, anchored by ace broadcast Journalist, Mayor Isaac Brown, on Monday, Oba Francis, who is the Vice-chairman, Oyo Traditional Council, declined to speak on the matter when he was asked to react to the matter.

He noted that the Oyo State Traditional Council will discuss the matter at their next meeting, adding that a decision would be taking on the matter.

Oba Francis, however, said the all traditional rulers in Oyo State always accord Governor Seyi Makinde maximum respect and that Governor Seyi Makinde also respects them.

According to him, Governor Seyi is a very humble and respectful personality, stressing that the monarchs have no regret supporting his re-election bid and the election of President Bola Tinubu, despite the fact that Obasanjo had another presidential candidate.
