Senator Ibikunle Amosun described Ojude Oba as a veritable cultural festival


The Awujale and the paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, and the Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun have described Ojude Oba as a veritable cultural festival which has come to stay in Ijebuland.

Both of them spoke on Sunday at the 2017 edition of the annual festival, which held inside the Jubilee Square, directly facing the Awujale palace in Ijebu Ode.

Oba Adetona who thanked God for enabling him and his subjects to witness this year’s edition, said Ojude Oba, has grown over the years that it has become difficult for any festival elsewhere to rival it.

He commended the governor, the different age grade groups known as ‘Regberegbe’ and the Baloguns, for their unflinching support.

He said,  I give thanks to God for another opportunity to witness this year’s Ojude Oba and I prayed that we will all witness many more of it.

Many thanks to the governor for his support all the time. The same thing goes to the ‘regberegbe’ and the Baloguns.

I must state that Ojude Oba has become a festival which cannot be rivalled. The festival has been in existence for over a century, and it has continued to improve every year.

On his part, Amosun said his administration would continue to create the enabling environment for such festival to continue to thrive.

The governor who noted that there was anxiety in the state when the social media were awash with unfounded tales about the monarch’s health, said everybody was happy to see that he had regained his health and now looked fit.

He said, We thank God that the Kabiyesi is hale and hearty, we were all worried over the unfounded story about him.

We will continue to create the enabling environment for a festival like this to continue to thrive. This is a festival that has come to stay, and it will outlive all of us.”

The guest of honour, Dr Adebola Adegunwa, urged Ijebu people to guard the festival jealously, because it has become a rallying point for all of them.

He said many of them who have not seen one another for almost a year, there was a probability they would see themselves at the festival venue.

He advised his kinsmen not to nurse animosity against each other but continue to promote unity and peace in Ijebuland.

Dignitaries at the event include the wife of the governor, Mrs Olufunso Amosun, deputy governor, Mrs Yetunde Onanuga, the speaker of the state House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi, and a former governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel among others.
