The people of Ijebu in Ogun state, yesterday, were thrown into an upswing mood  when the Senate President, David Mark gave his unalloyed backing to the creation of Ijebu state.

Mark who was speaking at the 2012 annual Ojude-Oba celebration at Ijebu-Ode on Sunday, stated that states creation would bring governance closer to the people.

He said “I have received the delegation from the (Ogun) State who are the main committee members for creation of Ijebu State. I’m here to say one thing that I’m fully in support of the creation of Ijebu State.
“Let me make my point clear: where I stand in politics is never in doubt. I support the creation of Ijebu State. I support the creation of (more) states in this country. And the National Assembly must work towards that.
“When we create states, it is not because we cannot live together but because we want to bring governance closer and nearer to the people.
“A lot of people desire and deserve to feel a sense of governance in this country and when we create states, that is what would happen.”

in his response, the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona expressed his uttermost gratitude to the senate president for his support, adding that the creation of Ijebu state is long over due.

He said “It is the only province that existed since 1975 that is yet to be converted to a state, while other provinces had been divided into two or more states.”

Chairman of Globacom, Mike Adenuga, who is from Ijebu, was singled for commendation by the state governor, Ibikunle Amosun and the monarch, for adding many innovations and value to the festival, thereby turning it to a world-class carnival which has attracted people from across Nigeria and the rest of the world.

The festival was attended by senators, enthusiasts, captains of industries, indigenes of Ijebu and other political bigwigs
