It is will great happiness and gratitude to God that I welcome you all to the Inauguration Ceremony of 20 Working Committees of the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) for the Executive Year 2017-2019.
I regard this event as the official flag-off of the Empowerment Phase in the life of the CCII with the first three (3) phases of Creation, Consolidation and Relevance successfully achieved by my predecessors in the past 35 years.
With the caliber and enthusiasm of people we have assembled to serve Ibadanland, today clearly marks a significant turning point in the life of the CCII and the story of the CCII will never be the same again as from today. Today we are taking on the responsibilities of a “Community Government” to our Socio-Cultural mandates with these responsibilities, your CCII will be uplifted and glorified beyond being confused with any other group in organization or focus. Your CCII will be rightly positioned and absolutely confirmed as the Voice, the Face and the symbol of the Ibadan people and their heritage . More
