Reports emerging from the selection process of the new Aseyin of Iseyin at the king’s palace indicated that Prince Olawale Semiu Oyebola has emerged as the preferred candidate of the kingmakers.
The ten kingmakers arrived at the palace at ten in the morning after security men had cordoned off the place to forestall any break in law and order since early Tuesday morning and the voting process started, as planned by the officials of the Iseyin local government and security agents.
The outcome of the votes cast showed majority votes in favor of the 53-year-old.
Prince Oyebola is the 30th Aseyin after the demise of the late Dr. Abdganiy Salawudeen Adekunle Oloogunebi Ajinese 1.
He works and resides in the United States of America with his family and has always shown interest in the welfare of the community, which prompted his education foundation, under which indigent students of tertiary institutions access scholarship funding.
