Ibikunle Amosun, Governor of Ogun State, has commended Globacom for the Second National Operator’s support for development of culture in Nigeria.
“I commend the management of Globacom, especially the Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, GCON for identifying with Lisabi Festival. It is also important to note that Glo’s participation and sponsorship of traditional and cultural development across Nigeria has been monumental. This has distinguished Glo as a service provider of distinction among its peers,” Amosun says.
The Governor, represented by Yetunde Amusan, Ogun State Commissioner for Culture said this at a seminar on Amalgamation in Nigeria and Egba National Independence as part of activities marking the 2014 Lisabi Festival, held recently at June 12 Cultural Centre, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Seminar papers were presented by notable academics on topics like The rise and fall of Independent Egba Nation, The Political Economy of Egba Nation, a study in modernization and diversification and Heroes and Heroines of Egba Nation, among others.
Delivering the vote of thanks, Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, the Alake and paramount ruler of Egbaland encouraged Egba indigenes to return home to invest and build industries. He charged them to come and pick up the family titles, concluding that “those who can kill you are all dead”.
