Ojude Oba festival gets boost from FCMB

The popular Ojude Oba  festival has gained support from First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Limited in a bid to sustain the country’s cultural heritage and boost tourism and its associated benefits.

The authority of the bank noted that this will go a long way to educate and inspire future generations about the history of Nigeria, the people and values, while also fast-tracking the ongoing efforts of the government to diversify the economy.

FCMB stated this at a press conference in Ijebu-Ode to flag-off activities to celebrate the festival, scheduled to hold on August 24, 2018.

In a goodwill message to the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba (Dr.) Sikiru Adetona, on the occasion of this year’s festival, the Chief Executive of FCMB Group Plc, Mr. Ladi Balogun, said:  “For all true sons and daughters of Ijebuland, the Ojude Oba Festival is more than an event for us.
