The Abepa of Joga-Orile, Lagori III,Oba Adeyemi Adekeye has appealed to government at all levels with special focus on private individual to come and establish Tertiary Institution at Jogaland with a pledge of providing free land to support any interested investors.

Abepa made this pledge cum appeal in an interview with the First Awareness at his Palace, Joga-Orile marking his 19th years Coronation Anniversary  expected to come up on Tuesday 21st December,2021.

According to Oba Adekeye,what Joga-Orile  desires right  now is tertiary institution be it University or Polytheistic to bring rapid development and improve economic well being of his subjects.

"Yes,my desire for Joga-Orile now is tertiary institution to forster rapid development of the land  and better economic growth of my people . Anywhere there is tertiary institution there must be development and improve economic situation of the people living in the environment."Abepa stressed.

Still stressing on the development,Lagori III said apart from the peaceful co-existence of the people in Joga-Orile ,a modern Golf playing center with five stars hotel has been establihed in Joga-Orile. In Ogun State today,after Abeokuta the next place to play Golf is Joga-Orile.

Abepa said there are good land for farming which could be used by anybody interested in Agricultural business or businesses such as poultry rabbitory, piggriy and other form of farming.

He therefore called on all private business men and women who want to invest on education to come to Joga-Orile as he pledged free land for their establishment.

Kabiyesi who was full of praises to God for His protection, blessing and grace for witnessing yet another successful year on earth,said Joga-Orile has witnessed some  remarkable developments since he became the royal father of the ancient town some 19th years ago.

"I became Abepa the Lagori III,on December,2002.I came from United States of America (US) during Governor Osoba regime and my linage is Lagori,and by God grace  Iam Lagori the III. Since then, God has been using me for tremendous changes in Joga-Orile because,that time Jogaland was so backward but today,we have started to witness some physical development.

Oba Adekeye
Yes, Joga-Orile then was so quiet  an ancient town with a first class Oba. But today one can say proudly that am from Joga-Orile a notable town in Yewa North Local government area's of Ogun State.

Asked to know if Abepa is a first class Oba,he answered with cheers.Yes, Abepa is first class traditional ruler of Joga-Orile which was established in 1604 so,it is not by the size but small and mighty.he stated.

Full of praises, Abepa thanked all those who have been part of Joga-Orile development especially past a present Governors of Ogun State and friends across the globe for their support saying,it is not yet over untill they give him helping hands and establish a tertiary institution in Jogaland.

"Some people are saying that Ogun State has a large number of Tertiary Institutions but I don't believe in that untill Jogaland get one .Then, I may agree with them".

On the celebration of his 19th years Coronation Anniversary, Abepa said this year celebration will be low-key as it would only witness prayers to God for his protection over the entire people of Jogaland ,Ogun State and  Nigeria as a whole.

Oba Adekeye
"Iam not inviting people for this year celebration ,I just want to pray to God and thank Him.Although,I will be expecting few of my friends Obas,like the Paramount Ruler of Yewaland Oba Kehinde Olugbenle,new Olu of Imashayi, Aboro of Iboro,Adokun of Iganokoto,Alaperu,Elepe of Epe-Sagamu,Ebumawe of Ago-Iwoye and some neighboring Obas just to thank God for His protection.

"Also, I will use the occasion for the confirement of Chieftaincy title on two personalities, Mr.Adeoye Akinlotan,as Baasaba of Jogaland and Mr.Pradeep Doulatram Pahalwani as Otunba Atunluse of Jogaland but all will be in a low-key "Abepa stated.
