Osogbo – This year’s edition of the Osun-
Osogbo festival ended on Friday with Gov. Rauf
Aregbesola promising sustained support to the
popular cultural event.
The Votary Maid (Arugba) at the 2012
Osun Osogbo Festival, held at the
Osun Groove, Osogbo, the State of Osun
on Friday 24-08-2012
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that
monarchs, devotees, masqueraders as well as
traditional religion worshippers paid homage to
the host of the festival and Ataoja of Osogboland,
Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, at the Osun-Osogbo
groove.
Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun, in his remarks at
the occasion, said the state government would
continue to support the festival to ensure its
sustainability and growth.
Aregbesola, who was represented by the
Commissioner for Home Affairs, Dr Olawale
Adebisi, said the festival provides the largest
platform for tradition and culture to be exhibited.
“It is also the largest gathering of youths; so it
provides a channel for transfer of culture and
tradition to the younger generation,’’ he added.
The governor also said the festival “ brings
about economic development, as tourists who
come for the festival would lodge and spend
their money which improves the state
economy.”
He called on the Ataoja to use the occasion to
pray for Nigeria and Osun, especially as the
governorship election was drawing near.
The governor also asked the monarch to pray
for victory for the ruling All Progressives
Congress so as to sustain its developmental
initiatives.
Mrs Taiwo Oluga, the Special Adviser to the
Governor on Culture and Tourism, called for
more support from stakeholders for the
promotion of culture and heritage.
Oluga, who paid tributes to the Ataoja for
successfully hosting this year’s edition of the
festival, said the event deserved the support of
all stakeholders.
Olanipekun, in his remarks, thanked all the
partners and sponsors who made the festival a
success as well as traditional rulers and
dignitaries who attended the event. (NAN)
