Osun Kingmakers replace idol worshipping with Jesus Christ

Kingmakers and traditional chiefs in the Ife North Local Government area of Osun State have pledged not to consult Ifa oracles or deities when choosing the new Olumoro of Moro, as the selection process is about to begin.

Newsmen at the palace on Wednesday were informed by the Moro council of chiefs and Kingmakers, headed by the town’s Oosa, High Chief Festus Abidoye, that under the late king Oba Ezekiel Oyeniyi’s reign, notable advancements were documented as he replaced idol worshipping with devotion to Jesus Christ.

He said, “Oba Oyeniyi replaced the Egungun festival with Moro For Christ crusade and other Christian festivities,” he said.

Abidoye noted that “Selection of the new king of the town will be fair and follow due process. We have prayed and are still praying. When the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi visited us he told us that he is in support of whatever has been done to select a new king.

“We have tasted both the benefits of serving deities and God almighty, we have seen which one pays us. Since we shifted our allegiance to Jesus Christ, we witnessed monumental development in our community.

“Most of the Ifa diviners are only looking for what to eat, we are not going to consult Ifa in choosing our next king, we are going to consult our God. The moment we move with his will, he will perfect it.

“This community is not a mono-religious community. We have both Christian and Muslim communities. We are not going to exclude Muslims in whatever we will do but we are not going to include idol worshippers. No Ifa worshiper will come here to give us divination.

“Bribery and corruption blind the eyes of the wise. I have told all the chiefs to shun bribery from any contestants and I have the assurance that they won’t do it, if they do it the wrath of God will fall on whosoever indulges in it.“
