It is not often that owulakoda.com goes out of its way to glorify a non-indigene of Owu Kingdom, but this Ijesha man in collar and cassock who sports a similar spiritual calling with the Olowu before the latter became an Oba is well deserving of accolade for his positive impact on the lives of the people of the sleepy community of Apomu near Arigbajo and Ifo. In fact he has rightly been conferred with an honorary citizenship!
(There may be many more like him out there who are positively impacting on the well being of Owu communities. Kindly bring them up to the notice of owulakoda.com and they shall be accorded the mention they deserve).
