By Dimeji Jagun
Controversy surrounding which of the five recognized ruling houses in Igbogbo is entitled to produce the next Adeboruwa of Igbogbo after the passage of Oba (Dr) Johnson Fatola from the Rademo Ruling House has been laid to rest with the public notice issued by the Igbogbo/Baiyeku Local Council Development Area.
In a public notice issued on 24th March, 2016 and signed by the Executive Secretary, Hon. Taiwo Orenuga, the government called on the Ijaolu Ruling House to produce candidate(s) for the consideration of the Adeboruwa Kingmakers.
According to the public notice, “It is hereby notified, that IJAOLU Ruling House is the next ruling house in the declaration in respect of the Adeboruwa to present candidate(s) for the vacant stool of Adeboruwa of Igbogbo.”
“The IJAOLU Ruling House of Igbogbo, hereby called upon to submit the name(s) of the candidate(s) selected for the filling of the vacant stool of the ADEBORUWA of Igbogbo, to the Kingmakers within Thirty days of the date of this notice”
By this public notice by the Executive Secretary, Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA, the coast is now clear for the Adeboruwa Kingmakers and the generality of Igbogbo residents to begin the process of selection the next Oba of Igbogbo.
Meanwhile, the Olootun (Elder) Chief Ayodele Osho-Ashafa, the head of the Oshinbokunren Ruling House of Igbogbo in a press conference recently said that it is the turn of the Oshinbokunren and called on the government and entire Igbogbo people to accord them the opportunity.
The issue of which of the Ijaolu Ruling Houses (Ijaolu Abiye (Ewu-Elepe) and Ijaolu Osho-Ojuba) is another matter the government will still have to clarify in good time.
