Encomiums as Market Women in Akoko Land Praises Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo
It’s a common saying among the Yorubas that when ones son does well, he deserves to be praised. The Yoruba culture is one that appreciates and celebrate a good name, as it’s always said among them,” a good name is better than gold”.
Thus it is the desire of men from among the Yoruba to be identified as a true Omoluabi, one that’s well brought up and nurtured, who understands the way of the elders, the importance of self worth, humility, selfless sacrifice and exemplary living.
It’s indeed a spectacular sight on the 24th of December 2020, as market women from Akoko North East and North West gathered to shower Encomiums on one of their illustrious son, Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, a member of the Federal Lawmaker representing Akoko North East /North West Federal Constituency.
