The Ajikanje lineage of Dada ruling house in Share, Ifelodun local government area of Kwara State has implored the State Government to look inward and make inquiries from people of the community so that it would be well guided in picking new Olupako for the town.
A statement by Dada ruling house in Share urged government to ensure the kingmakers follow the due process in selecting a new Oba for Share community.
“It could be recalled that upon the death of the late king Oba Abubakar Garuba Dosunmu the family of Ajikanje in Share unanimously chose a candidate, Prince Aderounmu Kazeem, a Lagos based journalist whose link to our great grandfather, Ajikanje is obvious and his candidature was supported and duly signed by all other members of the family.
“Upon his presentation the community as a whole including those living outside Kwara state are well pleased with our choice. The Dadas are of two family it’s either you are of Ajikanje that is based in Ile Oluloke Share or the Oyadeyi, another child of Dada that are in Babanloma. These two, Oyadeyi and Ajikanje are children of Olupako Dada that reigned within 1835 to 1874. Johnson Adediran is not one of us and this is a fact that is well known to the community”, it said.
The Ajikanje lineage also called on stakeholders in Share town to make sure the kingmakers follow the due process in selecting a new Olupako for Share town.
