According to her “Alaafin doesn’t just pick anybody for titles and we thank God you are the choice. No doubt you deserve the title, Alaafin’s choice cannot be faulted.
Quite a number of people she said, came to lobby for the position but Alaafin didnt give in to their pressure.
“What gladdens our heart is the fact that you were very accessible to us before you became the Aare, that is why we are sure you will reckon with us as the Aare Ona Kakanfo”
Also speaking during the visit, the Iyaloja Akesan in Oyo said the market women came to put themselves under the cover of the Aare.
