Oyo Airlifts First Batch Intending Pilgrims to Mecca
The First Batch who were airlifted on Thursday, aboard Aero Contractor Airline departed Muritala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos State to Medina, Saudi Arabia around 11:50pm.
The carnival which preceded the celebration slated for Thursday was witnessed by the Chairman, Iseyin local government, officials of Oyo State Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism, Iseyin local government, the Oyo State Cultural Troupe and people of Iseyin.
The anniversary is an opportunity to showcase the potentials in the traditional hand-woven clothing materials which is the choice of Africans and Europeans, when it comes to occasions like marriage, burial ceremonies and other moments of jollification.
He explained that the festival was used to showcase the 33 Local government potentials in Arts, and Culture and to identify new talents that will represent Oyo State in national festivals like Abuja carnival and Nigeria art and culture festivals.
The event, which was also witnessed by student union leaders of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso (LAUTECH), politicians of note and community leaders was in commemoration of the life and time of late Akintola.
By now, I expected Alaafin’s personal belongings and his paraphernalia of office to have been curated and kept jealously, preparatory to shipping them into a museum. Kabiyesi was a man of intellect who wrote so prodigiously and profoundly on issues of our contemporary society.
