Alaafin Stool Is Not For Sale, Makinde Declares

The Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde on Friday, September 15, said the vacant stool of Alaafin of Oyo is not for sale.

He said the state would do everything possible to protect the stool, adding that anyone who might have given money to anyone because of the stool would be sent to the anti-graft agency.

Makinde said he would not only refer such people to the Oyo State Anti-Corruption Agency (OYOCA) but would personally take such individuals to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He urged the people of Oyo town, particularly those jostling for the stool to embrace peace so that the next occupant can be announced, just as he did with the approval of the new Aseyin of Iseyinland.


Makinde spoke in Iseyin during the official opening of the Iseyin Campus of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Renewable Natural Resources of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Iseyin.

The event has Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo as the Special Guest of Honour to unveil the commemorative plaque and Commission the project.

Details soon…
