Oyetola declares Monday public holiday for Isese Day


Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has declared next week Monday as public holiday in commemoration of this year’s annual ‘ISESE Day’ celebration. 

This was contained in a release signed by the state Commissioner for Special Duties, Olalekan Badmus, who is also the Supervising Commissioner for the Ministry of Home Affairs, obtained in Osogbo on Friday. 

It read in part: “The governor has directed that this year’s Isese Day  with a theme: ‘Abalaye adulawo ati ipaniyan s’owo; nje ajosepo wa bi?’ (African tradition and ritual killing; any connection?), should be celebrated responsibly and with security consciousness. 

“The governor congratulated the traditional religion worshippers throughout the state, just as he also appealed to them to be peaceful and law-abiding in their conducts before, during and after the festival. He equally enjoined them to pray for the growth and development of the state in particular and Nigeria as a whole.”
