The compound heads warned Arapaja against using the names of Ibadanland chieftaincy holders to gain political relevance.
Their statement reads in part:
"Olubadan-in-Council is non partisan. It is father to all aspirants from Ibadanland. It is wrong on the part of any politician to drag any of its members in the mud of the nation's murky politics."
