Bajowa who is also the Jagunmolu of Ikale Land and Ojagbulegun of Ayeka kingdom, expressed delight at the record breaking occasion, saying that, the Ayeka Regency is significant in a lot of ways because it is rare for kingmakers in the land to resolve to anoint a female as Regent, though it is fast becoming an acceptable culture in Yoruba Land.
