The Paramount Ruler of Ijebu land, Oba Sikiru Adetona, has asked Ijebus to select a capable candidate to succeed him, when he passes away.
He warns against politicization of the selection of the next Awujale.
The Awujale speaking at the 2019 Ojude Oba Festival in Ijebu Ode, urges his subjects to ensure the stool is not given to moneybags who will destroy what Ijebus have achieved so far.
If the next ruling class fails to produce a suitable candidate, the Awujale advises the Ijebus to consider the next ruling class which has a capacity to mount the throne of Awujale.
The Ojude Oba ceremony had in attendance, Governor Dapo Abiodun, his Deputy, Mrs Noimot Oyedele-Salako; former Governors Olusegun Osoba and Gbenga Daniel as well as former Deputy Governor Segun Adesegun.
Also in attendance were Sir Kessington Adebutu, Chief Ayo Adebanjo and Senator Olabiyi Durojaiye.
