In his welcome address, Pharm Lekan Asunni, the chairman of Oronna Ilaro Festival Central Planning Committee, OIFCPC, commended the state government for its support for the festival as well as infrastructure development of the area with particular reference to Ilaro-Owode Road adding that like Oliver Twist, the government should come to the aid of communities in addressing the challenges of township roads.
The occasion was used by Oba Olugbenle to give meritorious awards for deserving sons and daughters and others for their contributions to the development of the area. Among the recipient of the awards were the Governor of the state, Prince Abiodun, Senator Adeola, and Chief Kayode Odunaro, who served as the chairman of OIFCPC for 4 years between 2012-2015.
