The Chairman, 2024 Ojude Oba Iperu Planning Committee, Alhaji Taiwo OYEBANJO, has commended members of the committee for their overwhelming cooperation and support in the year 2023.
OYEBANJO gave this commendation in his New Year Message to the committee members.
In the message, he congratulated the members for a joyful crossover to the year 2024, as he wished them a blessed new year. “No doubt, we have closed the year 2023 on a very high note, and expectantly, our hopes and aspirations for the year 2024 as a group is tall and ambitious. May the Lord grant our desires both individually and as a group”, said the Chairman.
He appreciated all members greatly, describing them as wonderful people.
He said, “we have used our coming together to prove that Iperu can co-exist happily, and that we are more prepared to use our individual and collective greatness to build the town”, describing the level of cooperation and support received so far as amazing and overwhelming.
This according to him can be likened to what was witnessed in Iperu before the unnecessary and avoidable division. “It is our time, and i am glad we are coming together to prove that we can live happily together, and support each other, said OYEBANJO.
As the 2024 Ojude Oba draws closer, he passionately appealed for a continuous relentless efforts at making the event a successful one.
“Let’s continue the financial support, attend meetings regularly, and come up with ideas that can help make the Ojude Oba a great outing”, he enjoined the members.
He acknowledged the receipt of the donation of the sum of #1m (One Million Naira), from one of the members of the committee, who does not want to be named, as well as another member who has equally pledged to sponsor the performance of the fuji sensation, Wasiu Alabi PASUMA at the event.
OYEBANJO further said that the committee’s effort is primarily to make Iperu people happy by celebrating the 2024 Ojude-Oba in a grand style, thereby promoting unity, and fostering peaceful co-existence in the town. “May we receive divine happiness in our individual homes”, the Chairman therefore prayed.
While wishing them a happy and prosperous New Year, he also welcome further donations from members of the committee, and other interested volunteers who may want to support the committee in its work.
