In a surprising twist to the age-old tradition of Ifa oracle in choosing the new rulers of Oyo and Ogbomoso, the Paramount Ruler of Iwoland, His Majesty Oba (Dr.) Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has made a bold statement, asserting that Ifa has no role to play in the selection of the new Alaafin of Oyo and Soun of Ogbomoso.

He emphasized that the government holds the key to filling the vacant stools, leaving contenders in a state of endless waiting.

Speaking on the matter, in a statement made available to ADULAWO NEWS on Sunday, Oba Akanbi emphasized, “God installs not Ifa.
According to him, “When a vacant stool is to be filled, contestants will patronize the government, not Ifa.
“Those who patronize Ifa will have to wait endlessly.” This unexpected proclamation has raised questions among the people of Oyo and Ogbomoso, who have traditionally relied on Ifa oracle’s guidance in selecting their monarchs”, he added.

Oba Akanbi further expressed his skepticism towards the reliance on Ifa, stating, “Only Princes who are far from reality or watching too many Nollywood movies will rely on Ifa to announce him. God will speak through the government. We are not far from reality referring to the government as the Ifa.”
