Mr Titilope Andu – Balogun, Chairman, Igbogbo Day Planning Committee, speaking at the unveiling event, acknowledged the involvement of Igbogbo indigenes in diasporas, while also seeking the palace blessings in the sales of the ‘Ankara’ and programme booklets for the 2023 edition of the annual Igbogbo Day.
“Last year, Igbogbo indigenes in Diasporas in America, North America and Canada, came together and supported us for the Igbogbo Day celebration. Today, we have their President with us, who came to observe the way we are doing the celebration, because they are planning their own Igbogbo Day this year too, which is going to be held in Washington DC”, he said.
“The new President of the Igbogbo lndigenes in the Diasporas, is Omoba Omolaja Segun who is with us.
“We are here today to receive blessings from the Adeboruwa and our fathers, and unveil this ‘Ankara’ fabric, because people have been requesting for it. We are also clamouring for the cooperation of our fathers, like they did last year”, Mr Andu – Balogun said.
“Throughout the celebration last year, there was no single chief that requested for the fabric free. They all purchased the fabric, and that helped us to maximize profits from about N1.5million previously, to over N6milion.
“We hope for improved figure this year”, he said.
Alhaji Sulaimon Adekunle, Treasurer, Igbogbo Day Celebration, requesting the Adeboruwa to officially unveil the fabric, said that the royal blessing is important for good outing and profit maximization.
