Faces at the press briefing 

Globacom, a leading digital solutions provider, has reaffirmed its commitment to promoting Nigeria's rich cultural heritage by partnering with the organizers of the Ojude Oba festival for the 18th consecutive year. 
The partnership, which began in 2006, aims to preserve and celebrate the country's cultural traditions.

At a pre-event press conference held at Awujale's Palace in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, Globacom's representative, Mr. Kazeem Kaka, emphasized the company's dedication to uplifting Nigeria's cultural heritage through its continued support of the festival. 

The Ojude Oba festival, a significant cultural event in Nigeria, is a testament to the country's rich cultural diversity and historical significance.

"Our sponsorship of festivals is aimed at identifying with the cultures and traditions of the Nigerian people, as an indigenous brand. Our involvement in the celebration of Ojude Oba festival is therefore geared towards promoting the unique tradition and custom of the Ijebu people," Kaka said. 

Globacom's collaboration with the custodians of this festival, Mr. Kaka explained, underscores the company's commitment to the rich heritage of the nation which is externalised through these festivals.

“It is our belief that our continued support for Ojude Oba will further strengthen the festival and entrench it as a world class carnival which will attract even more tourists from across the world. We are convinced that this partnership will further foster a symbiotic relationship with immense benefits for both Globacom and Ijebuland,” he added.

In his speech, the chairman, Ojude Oba Planning Committee, Chief Olu Okuboyejo, paid tribute to Globacom for its massive support for the celebration which he noted serves as a reminder of the historical antecedents of the Ijebu people.

Themed: "Unity and Harmony in Ijebuland...The gift of Ojude Oba", the 2024 edition of the festival is the 18th time that Globacom will be partnering with the Ojude Oba Planning Committee as the main sponsor of the festival.

Ojude Oba is celebrated annually two days after the Islamic Eid El-Kabr festival and it’s a social gathering where all divergent issues affecting the lives of the Ijebu people are addressed. It is also a cornerstone for the development of the community socially, politically and economically.
