gboho residents want Igbo-Oba turned to tourist centre

Published by Tribune on Wed, 28 Dec 2011

RESIDENTS of Oke-Afin community in Igboho, Orelope Local Government Area, Oyo State, have called on the state governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, to turn the ancient Igbo-Oba where four Alaafins were buried to a tourist centre that will change the socio-economic outlook of the town.The call came when Community News visited the forest and spoke to some people living around the area.They said the place should have become a tourist centre long ago but due to neglect by the past administrations in the state which never paid attention to the place despite pleas from the people of the town.A middle-aged man who spoke to Community News but who did not want his name in print, decried the poor state of the forest and wondered how such a place could be abandoned considering the rich heritage of the forest.'As a mark of respect for the four Alaafins, the place ought to have been turned into tourist centre.'It's a shame that past administrations failed to exploit the rich resources of the forest. Before the fencing of the place, people were using the place as a public toilet and litered the place with excretre.'This was what prompted the former chairman of the council, Engineer Alao, to fence it .We are urging governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, to see to our request before the end of his tenure. I also want to urge all sons and daughters of Igboho to contribute positively to the development of the town,' he said.
