I assume you have installed Ansible from PyPI, as the version available from the EPEL repository is based on the system's Python 3.6 installation. If that is the case, I believe your best option is to install Ansible on top of Python 3.6, installed either via dnf or from source. You should install the libselinux and python3-libselinux packages and, if you are using a source Python distribution, the selinux package from PyPI.
