……Says Iwo Day Remains 23rd of December, 2017
Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba AbdulRasheed Adewale Akanbi Telu 1 has dissociated himself from a purported Invitation Card announcing the celebration of Iwo Day on 16th November, 2017.
Oluwo described the Invitation Card which has his name as the one inviting people to Iwo Day Celebration on 16th of November, 2017 as a fake, null and void.
He also said it is impersonation of the highest order to use his name to invite anyone to a celebration he knows nothing about.
In a release signed by the Oluwo himself, He further enjoined the entire public to be wary of those going around with the invitation cards, saying they are simply doing it purposely for their selfish interest and not that of the interest of the entire Iwo people.
“The 2017 Iwo Day has been fixed for 23rd of December, 2017. This date was agreed after a concensus was reached by Oluwo and Iwo Board of Trustees (The umbrella body of all clubs and associations and the apex decision making body in Iwoland). Those people going around peddling all sorts of rumors about Oluwo canceling this year Iwo Day are enemies of this land.”
Oluwo also warned anyone going around using his name to invite people to Iwo Day Celebration on 16th of December, 2017 to desist from such act, adding that the only approved date for the celebration of Iwo Day 2017 as approved by Oluwo of Iwoland and Iwo Board of Trustees is 23rd December, 2017.
