Prince Abiodun, who described the annual festival as an attestation to the economic, historical and spiritual antecedents of the Owu people, lauded the planning committee of Odun Omo Olowu, which according to him has helped immensely in projecting the rich cultural values and norms of the Owu people and by extension, Ogun State as a whole.
He added that,”It is a festival that helps to remind Owu people of their origin, as an essential component for stimulating communal understanding, love and unity and for augmenting steady progress, peace and development of the larger Community.
“This edition is particularly important because of the theme ‘Prosperity’; this fits very well into Our Building Our Future Together Agenda.
The clear vision of our government is to give Ogun State focused and qualitative governance and to create the enabling environment for a public private sector partnership, which we consider fundamental to the creation of an enduring economic development and individual prosperity of the people of Ogun state.”
