Nigeria’s leading telecommunication industry, Globacom, has promised to add more value to the annual Ojude Oba festival celebration in Ijebu-Ode.
The festival, which had attracted international attention according to the Regional Activation Manager, Lagos/Ogun region, Olufolahan Faseyitan, remained the only rallying point for all Ijebu to pay homage to the Awujale and Paramount ruler of Ijebuland and also taking the land through social and infrastructural development.
