Written by Website Admin on August 30, 2022
The Bashorun of Oyo, High Chief AKINADE YUSSUF AYOOLA LAYINKA, has said that the Ifa oracle will choose the next Alaafin of Oyo.
LAYINKA made this known via a statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity to the Alaafin of Oyo, ‘BODE DUROJAIYE.
You would recall that the throne of Alaafin of Oyo became vacant after the demise of the 45th Alaafin of Oyo, Oba LAMIDI ADEYEMI.
There had been reports saying that 119 Oyo princes had indicated interest in ascending the throne with 58 princes been cleared.
The Bashorun however declared that the oracle is the one to decide who succeeds Oba ADEYEMI, adding that it would be counterproductive for the Oyo Mesi to pick a candidate through their discretion and without recourse to traditional divination.
