Ibadan natives prepare for a cultural festival

The Central Council of Natives of Ibadan has described the upcoming week-long Ibadan Cultural Festival 2022 as a global event.

CCII President General Oluwayemisi Adeaga, who spoke at the official launch of the festival website on Wednesday, said the website was created to give people around the world the opportunity to see the rich cultural heritage and the development of the city. .

Adeaga said the needy would be able to choose any items they need without payment during the festival, scheduled for March 3-12.

He urged the natives and residents of Ibadan to bring items such as clothes, groceries and household appliances for use by those who cannot afford them.

He said this year’s calendar of cultural festivals was already completed before the passing of the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji.

He said he believed a new monarch would have been enthroned by the time the festival began.

Adeaga called on stakeholders to stop commenting on the controversy surrounding the selection of a new monarch, saying the controversy would end very soon.
