How I survived dethronement by Daniel— Alake

breaking-news-3ABEOKUTA—The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, yesterday, narrated how he survived dethronement by the administration of former Governor Gbenga Daniel.

The monarch, who stated this at a briefing on his 10th coronation anniversary in his palace in Abeokuta, Ogun State, said he was saved by an Abeokuta court judgment.

The Alake was said to have escaped being removed as a traditional ruler by Daniel’s administration in 2008 for allegedly criticising the poor state of the roads in the state.

Recounting his ordeal, Oba Gbadebo denied criticising Daniel’s administration, saying he only called the attention of the government to the deplorable condition of roads in Egbaland at that time.

He said: “I did not criticise the government. The Chief of Staff was there and I told him to tell his boss to fix the roads.”

The monarch added that he would continue to ask for more until the state capital becomes a paradise.
