The New Ijero LGA is an Act of God

554

Congratulations to the good people of Ijero-Ekiti metropolitan and the towns of Epe-Ekiti, Ara-Ekiti and Araromi-Ekiti on the creation of the new Ijero LGA with the headquarter at Ijero-Ekiti.

Our Ijero municipal aspirations which have begun for decades has just yielded fruits.

We give God the glory and now praise our Ijero ancestors and patriots like High Chief Rufus Fagbenro Omotade, Chief John Afolabi Arokodare, High Chief Wellington Fajembola Alufa, Pa Amos Obasa, Chief (Hon)Mike Fatogbe and other dead heroes who had a dream of Ijero Municipal Agenda during their lifetime.

Our living heroes and icons of modern Ijero Municipal Development led by HRM Oba Joseph Adebayo Adewole deserve our eternal gratitude to make sure that the Ijero Municipal Agenda aspirations are achievable during our lifetime.

Major General Kayode Oni (Rtd) is the stuff of a hero like his ancestor Olomofe Otirikijuda who is always leading a pivotal role in our community development projects.

Ijero patriots like Mr Adeniji Adeniran, Pastor Peter Akosile, Barrister Tosin Osundahunsi, Captain Ola Alufa, Mrs Mary Yemisi Ayilola and others deserve our commendation for their patriotic efforts.

Members of Ijero Municipal Agenda (IMA) at Owa Ajero Palace on a visit before the creation of the new Ijero LGA on Sunday, November 22, 2020.

The Ijero Development Association (IDA) led by the President, Engr. Niyi Owoyomi and the National General Secretary, Otunba Niyi Babade deserve our eternal gratitude.

Our dear Prof. Modupe Adelabu, former Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Hon. Omowunmi Ogunlola, member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Ademola Ojo, a member of Ekiti State House of Assembly (Ijero Constituency) deserves our debt of gratitude.

There are a number of silent heroes and “unknown” patriots who lend their support to the aspirations of the Ijero Municipal Development Goals but deserve our commendation too.

When honour is the employ of words or deeds, we will be eternally remembering for good.

The new journey and work across the spectrum for the Ijero Municipal Development has just begun. Let us contribute our own quota to the development of our community which is so much in need of our talents, time, and other resources.

Community development is very elastic, we cannot achieve it in one year or tenure of an administration or even in our lifetime. Each generation from time to time will continue its quota brick by brick and hands by hands to shape the community.

Ijero will take its place in Ekiti State Geopolitics and development if development starts with a man and not only infrastructures.

In the words of Owa Ajero, HRM Oba Joseph Adebayo Adewole: “Ilu nla ko si mo, Omo nla lo ku”, meaning (There is no more illustrious towns but illustrious sons and daughters of the communities). The small towns that have no place on the world map in the last century are now becoming relevant now because of the stuff of their illustrious children.

Ijero children will excel in all their endeavours when we make our youths to be fishermen and not just giving them fish to eat.

Congratulations to us all in the new Ijero Local Government Council.

May God continue to bless His Royal Majesty Owa Ajero of the Ijero Kingdom and all the good people of the Ijero.

Ajoro a gbe wa o.

We thank the Ekiti State Government led by Dr Kayode Fayemi for remembering the good people of the Ijero Community with a near status municipal Local Government Council. Like Oliver Twist, we still want more dividends of democracy in Ijero-Ekiti metropolitan to see the presence of the government in our land. Ijero Constituency remains the biggest State Constituency in Ekiti State with only one State Legislative member at the Ekiti State House of Assembly.

The creation of the new Ijero Local Government Area of Ekiti State is an act of God. To him alone be honour and glory.
