Ekiti community rejects Oba–elect

Written by Doyin Adebusuyi, Ado Ekiti

The people of Araromi Oke in Ekiti-East Local Government Area of Ekiti State, have rejected Folorunso David Alatise, as the Oloja-elect of the town.
The community has also urged the state governor to begin a new process that would produce a monarch widely accepted by the people.
The community made these known in a petition by Araromi Descendants Union and dated January 16, 2015, to the governor.
The group pleaded with the governor to order fresh selection process that is in consonance with the chieftaincy law to fill the vacant stool, to forestall anarchy in the town.
The petitioner contended that the proposed installation of Alatise as Oloja contravenes the customs and tradition of the town, having not been properly selected for the seat by kingmakers and other interested parties.
The petition, which was signed by the union’s president, Mr Toyin Oladele and secretary, Mr Femi Ibiteye, urged the government to direct the kingmakers to commence a fresh selection process “since there is no legal encumbrance barring such action.”
