Mosiah 29:2–3

And it came to pass that the voice of the people came, saying:

“We are desirous that Aaron thy son
should be our king and our ruler.”

Now Aaron had gone up to the land of Nephi, therefore the king could not confer the kingdom upon him; neither would Aaron take upon him the kingdom; neither were any of the sons of Mosiah willing to take upon them the kingdom.
