FCMB to promote Ojude Oba festival

First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Limited is set to promote the  Ojude Oba  festival in a bid to sustain the country’s cultural heritage and boost tourism and its associated benefits.

According to the bank, this will go a long way to educate and inspire future generations about the history of Nigeria, the people and values, while also fast-tracking the ongoing efforts of the government to diversify the economy.

FCMB stated this at a press conference in Ijebu-Ode to flag-off activities to celebrate the festival, scheduled to hold on August 24, 2018.

In a goodwill message to the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba (Dr.) Sikiru Adetona, on the occasion of this year’s festival, the Chief Executive of FCMB Group Plc, Mr. Ladi Balogun, said:  “For all true sons and daughters of Ijebuland, the Ojude Oba Festival is more than an event for us. It has become a long-standing yearly tradition we look forward to as a unifying platform and a tourist attraction. As a socially responsible corporate citizen, we recognise that respect for our heritage is important as a catalyst of cultural diversity and a guarantee of sustainable development”.
