Owu people do not steal – Obasanjo
The former President called for more unity in Owu land, while advising the Owu people to do more in helping one another.
Explaining the rationale behind the convention, Obasanjo, who is also an Owu Indigene, said it was for all indigenes of Owu to know one another and develop their land.
According to him, “Owu People do not steal. If you steal any Owu indigene stealing, ask the mother where she brought him from. I want us (Owu indigenes) to be more United. We are doing empowerment and giving out scholarship.”
He congratulated the new president of Royal Union of Owu People, Alhaji Fatai Akinbade and tasked him to unite indigenes and ensure growth of the people of Owu.
The Olowu of Kuta, Oba Adekunle Oyelude Makama who hosted the convention expressed hope that Nigeria would summount its security challenges.
He urged sons and daughters of Owu to be more United and work together for the development of Owu People.
