In Celebration of Nigeria’s Cultural Heritage, FCMB Supports Ojude Oba Festival




It was fun, excitement and an exhilarating celebration of culture at this year’s Ojude Oba Festival.

As sponsors of the event, leading lender First City Monument Bank (FCMB) was expectedly highly visible. Beginning with an imposing billboard welcoming attendees to Ojude Oba 2016, to branding across the entire Ijebu-Ode town and the exclusive Ankara worn by the FCMB delegates, the Bank truly added colour to this year’s festival in a unique way.

FCMB has explained that it’s continuous support of the Ojude Oba Festival ‎is borne out of its commitment to celebrate and preserve Nigeria’s cultural heritage, while also boosting the tourism sector, in line with the government’s ongoing drive to diversify the country’s economy.

    This is the problem with Nigeria; FCMB supporting a useless celebration. When banks should be driving investments in the downstream of oil, energy, agriculture and agro-industrial sectors. We don’t seem to have any insight into the problems plaguing Nigeria. Our education sector is a disgrace, the health sector is practically non-existent. Lets us dance and forget our sorrow joor…

      Ojude Oba is not a useless ceremony it is to promote the culture of the Ijebus people from all over the world go home for this every year, it can be developed into a tourist destination.
