Digital solutions provider, Globacom, on Tuesday, threw its weight behind the 2024 Ojude Oba Festival of Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, emphasizing the huge potential of such festivals to promote cultural diversity, unity and harmony in the country.

In his goodwill message to this year’s edition of the event, the Chairman of Globacom, Dr. Mike Adenuga Jr., also noted that age-long festivals such as Ojude Oba could foster cultural exchange and showcase Nigeria’s rich heritage to the world.

Adenuga observed that the theme of this year’s celebration, UNITY AND HARMONY IN IJEBULAND: THE GIFT OF OJUDE OBA, emphasised the values that the festival had espoused for over a century that it has been in existence.               

He added that the festivals also had potential to boost tourism and help in the diversification of the economy which was why the Federal Government and many governments across the globe have placed tourism on top of their development agenda.

Adenuga noted that Globacom has   continued to support major festivals in the country in order to strengthen them as world class events which will attract even more visitors from across the world.

On the company’ partnership with the Ojude Oba Planning Committee, he is optimistic that it will further foster a symbiotic relationship with immense benefits for both Globacom and the sons and daughters of Ijebuland at home and in the Diaspora.

One of the key features of the festival is the Regberegbe (age grade) competition. Egbe Bobasete Okunrin Omooba came first with Egbe Bobagunte Okunrin Akile Ijebu second and  Egbe Bobamayegun Okunrin Asiwaju polling third place.

Egbe Bobagunwa Obinrin Omooba won first place in the female division, while  Egbe Bobagunwa Obinrin Asiwaju and  Egbe Arobayo Obinrin Akile Ijebu emerged as runners-up, taking home the same awards as their male counterparts.
