Also Reposted from @hrmimobikingdom, The office of an Ọba in Yoruba land is a hereditary office that is maintained by Royal families, but in order to be the one that is confirmed as an Ọba the chief priest and the town, elders would perform an IFA consultation to confirm if they have the right person because many use influence and money to attain this sacred office.
“I am elated that when the Uba Imobi kingdom’s IFA priests and the elders performed my Ọba consultation, IFA responded at the first throwing of the kola-nut that I am the right person for the Ọba’s office (The Olu of Uba Land Imobi Kingdom). I am grateful to IFA and the creator for permitting me to be the chosen Ọba for my people”.
“My sincere gratitude to my family, friends, and fans for your prayers, support, and well-wishes”.
