Some contenders jostling for the vacant stool of alaafin have called on Governor seyi makinde to take over from oyomesi before it becomes a disastrous situation.
DAILY GIST had reported earlier that the Bashorun and head of Oyomesi, Yusuf Akinade said kingmakers unanimously selected Lukuman Gbadegesin as the next Alaafin of Oyo
This was contained in a statement made available to Reporters on Tuesday night.
According to him, the selection of Lukuman Gbadegesin for appointment as the next Alaafin of Oyo followed due process.
However, in a statement made available to DAILY GIST on Thursday, Prince Ibrahim Oriade said contenders are completely dissatisfied with the selection process.
According to him, they were told during the peace meeting that they would consult oracle for the selection of a candidate to the vacant stool of alaafin, but they never did.
Prince Oriade said the Kingmakers had assured all the conteders of oracle consultation but now deviating from reality.
The statement reads in part: “We were weeping for the generations to come this morning when we saw a video of Basorun Yusuff Ayoola, Lagunna, and Akiniku who are supposed to be afraid of death defending delusional lies.
In his words, Prince Oriade said: “Chief laguna, who was recently rescued by late Oba Adeyemi now a frontline subject of manipulation. Sometimes in life, God almighty purposely infiltrate suffering on some people due to their bad intentions.”
He became a member of kingmakers (oyomesi) less than 7 years ago, and he is telling histories he has no idea of”
“We wonder what their lawyers are defending after seeing them on video interview promising the entire yourubas that oracle Consultation will be done accordingly, but never did.There shall be no announcements without oracle consultation.”
Another embarrassing statement made by one of the oyomesi(Akiniku) is that their kangaroo selected candidate’ is a good person within the town.”
“If their selected candidate is now painting himself as messiah and their best candidate, everyone should have it in mind that one day, SATAN will claim the nicest man on the planet.
Now that the recommendation of Money Bag Oyomesi proved that even Adolf Hitler and Joseph stalin are good people as well.
We are no longer interested and believe in Oyomesi. the government should take over or let the vacant stool of alaafin remain vacant forever.”he added.
