Prominent sons and daughters of Ijebuland and their friends from all walks of life attended the 2010 Ojude Oba Festival held today at the New Parvillion directly opposite the palace of Oba Awujale Kayode Adetona of Ijebuland.
The special guest of honour, Sir Kessington Adebukola Adebutu, the Asiwaju of Iperu-Remo, solicited the support of all Ijebus to the Awujale of Ijebuland, regarded as the father of all.
Adebute thanked the people and God for the opportunity given to attend the annual festival. He pledged his continued assistance towards the development of Ijebuland.
The former President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, ICAN, and Chairman of the Finance Committee of the festival, Otunba Lateef Owoyemi, declined to disclose the amount of money spent on the new parvilion, saying only the Awujale can disclose the amount.
