Parakoyi Egba Chieftaincy Title: Puting round peg in a round hole will bring the desired development- Igbore Chief

By Oluwayemisi Oloyede, Abeokuta

As the Egbas jostled for who occupy the new Parakoyi Egba Chieftaincy title, an Igbore Chief, Olalekan Popoola has urged the Alake and Paramount ruler of Egbaland Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo to choose a better candidate among the Igbore descendants who are by tradition, the only section that should be the Olori-Aje of Egbaland.

Chief Popoola who is Olorode of Igbore said Oba Gbadebo who is always very meticulous on matters that has to do with Chieftaincy matters, should also extend same to who occupies Parakoyi Egba stool.

Chief Popoola said though the process of selecting any traditional chief like Parakoyi Egba rests solely on Igbore township, warns that the town will not trade it with other section of the Egbas.

"Igbore has people of impeccable character like High  Chief Jamiu Ololade Animashaun, who has been tested with various offices and task and has been found capable

He said who ever will be chosen as Parakoyi Egba must come from Igbore township as by tradition, it is the only town in Egbaland where Aje deity resides.

"High Chief Jamiu Ololade Popoola, is the Baale General of Igbore, the current Baale of Afojupanla town, in all the task given to him, he has excelled, and it is our belief that if given higher task, he will not disappoint us 

He said before anybody will be pushed forward for any position, we must always ensure that people with impeccable character and verifiable means of livelihoods will be installed as Parakoyi Egba.

The Olorode of Igbore remarked that the process of installing a traditional Chief had been abused in the past, urged the Paramount ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo to conduct a thorough background check on those jostling  for Gbegbaaje of Egbaland.

Chief Popoola described Parakoyi Chieftaincy title as the Minister of Commerce in Egbaland, and must be versed in matters that need to be done with trade and money matter, and that's why Aje Deity has a role to play, hence since it's only Igbore section of Egba that can appease Aje deity, Igbore son should be chosen as Parakoyi Egba
