God installs monarchs, not Ifa, says Oluwo

A monarch in Osun State, Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdurosheed Akanbi, has disclosed that the days of seeking Ifa oracle to install traditional ruler is now a thing of the past, noting the God speaks through the state government to install monarchs.

Oba Akanbi who made this disclosure in a statement on Sunday said that only princes who are still living in the past run after Ifa in their quest to ascend a throne.

Oluwo, while expressing concern why the Ifa is yet to select successors to the vacant stools of Alaafin of Oyo and Soun of Ogbomoso, explained in a statement that “God installs monarchs, not Ifa. When a vacant stool is to be filled, contestants will patronise the government, not Ifa. Those who patronise Ifa will have to wait endlessly. Why has Ifa not picked the new Alaafin of Oyo and Soun of Ogbomoso? Or did Ifa travel so we can seek his return to give those towns new kings?

“Only Princes who are far from reality or watching too many Nollywood movies will rely on Ifa to announce him as a monarch. God will speak through the government. We are not far from reality referring to the government as the Ifa.”
