Oba can simply be described as a ruler. While the President is the political leader of the country, ethnic groups have their own traditional rulers. Since the days of our fore-fathers, kings have been put to oversee the helm and affairs of communal activities and appease the gods for peaceful co-existence of all dwellers. Kingship is often done by lineage and it is the function of king makers to consult the oracle to know the right candidate to mount the throne.
Integrity in Kingship should be one of the most important components in the Yoruba Traditional Society, no wonder a town or a village does not exist without having a ruler. These rulers (kings) are referred to as sons of Oduduwa. By the way, Oduduwa is known as the first Ife’s ruler and represents the ancestor of all modern and autonomous royal families and generations in Yorubaland.
