Ìsese Assembly Calls for Ìsese-Inclined Alaafin of Oyo
The Ìsese Welfare Association (IWA) has urged the Oyo State Governor to choose an Ìsese-inclined candidate for the vacant Alaafin throne. They emphasize the need for the new Alaafin to openly identify with the Yoruba Indigenous religion and protect the interests of practitioners. The appointment holds significant importance not only within Oyo town but also on a global scale among other traditional rulers in Nigeria.

IBADAN - An Ìsese organisation, Ìsese Welfare Association (IWA), which is popularly known in Nigeria as Ìsese Assembly, has called on Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde who has the appointing authority on en­thronement of traditional rulers in the State, as well as kingmakers in Oyo town to pick among contestants for the Alaafin throne, the most credible candidate that will be ready to iden­tify with Ìsese Religion.

In a Press Statement made available to news­men in Ibadan on Thursday, the body called for a choice of Alaafin that will not only openly identi­fy with the Yoruba Indigenous religion like the immediate past monarch of the town, Late Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi 111, but also protect the interests of practitioners, among other religions he will be presiding over in the an­cient town.

The statement, which was signed by the group's Nation­al Coordinator, Barr. Aderemi Ifáòleèpin Aderemi and Sec­retary-General, Ifagbenuola Popoola, urged Makinde and the Oyo-Mesi to speed up the selection process and fill the vacant throne of Alaafin, as whoever mounts the throne will be globally-revered among other traditional rulers in Ni­geria.

"We implore the Oyó-Mèsì, who are the Kingmakers to make sure that whoever that is selected or chosen to be the next Aláàfin of Oyo must be Ìsese inclined cum Ìsese lov­er; and who is ready to openly identify with Ìsese as a Yorùbá Indigenous Religion.

"That the appointing au­thority who is the Governor of Oyo State should gracious­ly appoint any eminently qualified candidate that will not only openly identify with Ìsese religion, but, also help to promote the unique tradition­al practices in Oyo Aláàfin, always.

"Further, we implore who­ever wishes to be next Aláàfin to also have in mind that, the stool is meant for someone who will always respect and cherish Ìsese."
