It’s cheering and exhilarating to report that the scheduled AGM 2022-themed “OLUMO2023” was indeed held at the beautiful ancient city of Abeokuta. It was a weekend of fun, networking, laughter, history, intellectual debates and wonderful memories. The AGM was straddled with pre and events by the Ogun State Chapter.
Here’s a recap of some of the major highlights of the event
1. Visit to the Alake of Egbaland – Upon our entry into the Gateway State, the Alumni delegation were received by the members of the Ogun State Branch led by their chairman Dr. Olalekan Oketokun and led to the palace of His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo III, CFR. The highly revered monarch received the delegation with great ecstasy and extolled the spirit of camaraderie in the association. He also lauded the various developmental projects of the association and the ‘give back’ spirit of the body. Kabiyesi gave royal blessings and wished the association a fruitful AGM. Here are some of the pictures from the visit
2. The train was led to the site of Olumo Rock for a sightseeing of one of Nigeria’s most visited tourist centres. Led by the tour guide, we climbed to the 3-stage 137m high rock and had fun singing, dancing and enjoying the rich history of the landmark site. Watch how we climbed to the top of the rock —>
3. Visit to the Kuti Heritage Museum – the building that housed the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation of the Kuti family. It was in the building that the legendary Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Afrobeats legend and activist was born and raised before leaving for the UK.
