AKURE—The Ahaghauye ruling house said it would resist been shut out of the race to produce a new Olowo of Owo in Ondo State.
Three ruling houses, Olateru- Olagbegi, Ajike and Ogunoye have for years been ruling.
This came as an inter-denominational service was held for the late Olowo, Oba Victor Olateru Olagbegi over the weekend.
Speaking with newsmen after the service, on behalf of the Ahaghauye ruling house, Prince Rotimi Ibidapo urged “the kingmakers to widen their horizon in picking a candidate to fill the position of Olowo.”
Ibidapo said: “I want the kingmakers and the people of Owo to choose whoever they want among the qualified princes as Olowo from all the ruling houses including Ahaghauye.
“We have more than three ruling houses. That is why I am appealing to the kingmakers to widen their horizon in picking a candidate to fill the position of Olowo.
