FCMB felicitates with Ijebuland on 2015 Ojude Oba festival
At the press conference to announce the kick-off of the traditional festival that pulls thousands of indigenes, tourists and guests from all walks of life to the historical city every year, the bank said it is proud to be a major partner and participant at the cultural masterpiece that equally serves as a distinctive platform to reconnect with the values that sustain the town’s rich history, heritage and industrious uniqueness of the Ijebu people.
According to the Group Managing Director and CEO of FCMB, Ladi Balogun, in a goodwill message to the organisers, the Ojude Oba festival is a major platform through which the bank connects with the community and promotes the nation’s diversity.
He stressed that the festival had become a long- standing yearly tradition that the true sons and daughters of Ijebu-land and tourists from other climes look forward to, as it equally serves as unifying factor and a tourist attraction.
“FCMB has been a major supporter of the Ojude Oba Festival for more than a decade and it has, indeed, been a mutually beneficial journey.
