Ipokia Kingmakers Elect New Oba Tomorrow
Kingmakers in Ipokia will elect the next Onipokia tomorrow, May 8, 2019, in a transparent, free and credible election at Ipokia Local Government Secretariat, Okeyinbo, Ipokia.
This is the last stage in the selection process for the next Oba of Ipokia land. After this, other traditional rites would be carried out, in accordance with the customs of Ipokia and Yoruba land, before the oba-elect would be finally installed.
Eight persons have been nominated as contestants interested in becoming the next Onipokia of Ipokia land; a stool vacated by the late Oba Raufu Adeole on November 13, 2016.
Sons of Iwaye Dodo Ruling House, who are interested in the coveted stool had submitted written applications to the family head, Alh. Amidu Ajibade.
Gentlemen of the press, all well-meaning individuals, major stakeholders including sons and daughters of Ipokia are enjoined to witness this epoch making occasion in an orderly and a peaceful manner.
May God guard and guide the kingmakers right as they choose a new Onipokia tomorrow.
