This is part of our website’s contributions to the development of Owu history, culture, and modern information delivery systems at all Owu community levels, and solidarity with RUOP at 21, as an anniversary gift to all Owu people.
Since the inception of owulakoda.com in 2008, there have been comments about the seeming Owu-Abeokuta bias of the website and many observers had proposed a more pan-Owu approach to the site. It is in response to these requests that we have chosen the most appropriate moment to unwrap our gift package to all the Owu communities, the 21st anniversary of the union, hosting at Abeokuta on the 7th and 8th of December, 2012.
The free websites shall operate in this fashion:
They shall be managed with our hosting account under the address of owulakoda.com, but shall include their own distinctive addresses or identity as a prefix.
For example, if Owu-Obaloyan community wants its own site under this scheme, it may be addressed as obaloyan.owulakoda.com, likewise if Orile-Owu also seek a presence, it shall read as orileowu.owulakoda.com etc.
The advantage to the participating communities is that they will be able to project their local history, opinions and related news and information to the whole world in exactly the way they desire… totally free of charge as we shall bear the costs and technical details of hosting their sub-domain websites!
The major condition however is that members of the various communities will have to provide the history and other contents they want to feature on their individual sites, and perhaps also a specific person as co-author to assist with managing contents and comments on those sites. The regularity of contents and dynamism of these sites will totally depend on these inputs since we at owulakoda .com are limited by resource and logistics to take up any major extra responsibilities.
It is thus hereby publicly announced that all communities interested in benefiting from this scheme make their interest known to either the RUOP executive body either through their zonal representatives, by email directly to this website through firstname.lastname@example.org, or at the floor of the 21st Owu Convention in Abeokuta.
Why are we doing this?
We came online specifically to serve, project, and propagate the great Owu heritage to the whole of the universe, and we aim to do just that with all our ability…with or without any human assistance, so help us God!
Moreover, we are convinced that all Owu people, big or small, should have a voice to communicate their mighty presence to the world!
HAPPY 21st UNIFICATION ANNIVERSARY to all Omo Ajibosin worldwide.
ANLUGBUA A GBE WA O!
