Seyi Makinde Reveals How The Next Alaafin Of Oyo Will Emerge

Emergence of the next Alaafin of Oyo will be strictly based on the signed Alaafin chieftaincy declaration, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has declared.

Makinde, who spoke at the burial ceremony of late Alaafin, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, explained that selecting a new monarch would not go beyond the Alaafin of Oyo chieftaincy declaration, despite calls from some people to recognise other royal families.

“I told them a new Alaafin will be selected only through the Declaration that was signed,” Mr Makinde declared.

Eulogising the late traditional ruler, the governor said that the late Oba Adeyemi lived an impactful life.

“God was merciful to baba because it is not easy to spend more than 50 years on the throne of your forefathers.

“So, it is a celebration of life for us today,” he said.
