From the Palace of Adagba of Iyanfoworogi,
His Royal Majesty Oba Adetayo Rasheed Oladele (Adegbaju 1)
Our Mission and Vision.
I was installed “Adagba of Iyanfoworogi” on November 24, 2018 by His Imperial Majesty Ooni Adeyeye Ogunwusi. As at the time of Coronation, Iyanfoworogi has no palace, no electricity, no crown land and no industry, leaving us with the huge task of having to start from the scratch. After meeting with the Chiefs and leaders of the community, we all agreed that Iyanfoworogi deserve to have a befitting palace and a community town hall. Moving swiftly to achieve these lofty goals, the foundation of the palace was laid on April 20, 2019. We also started a multipurpose building that will have two administrative offices to be used for town hall meetings. To God be the glory, the building is at the completion stage and the hall is being used for the intended purpose.
In our effort to achieve the development of a befitting palace (prototype attached), we seek your kind support. Iyanfoworogi has a great potential to become future industrial location because of its proximity to Ile-Ife (about 91/2 miles to Ooni’s palace) and the advantage of the Ife-Ondo interstate road that navigates through it. Currently, more than three miles of the distance from Ile-Ife have been fully developed for residential and commercial purposes. Therefore, part of the overall goal is to connect electricity to the town to enhance social cultural changes to the people of the communities in Iyanfoworogi and ultimately attract potential investors. We are working to acquire large expanse of land to create a land bank for interested investors.
To accomplish all aforementioned goals, we are launching a $150,000.00 appeal fund, Fifty Million Naira (N50m). We have been receiving donations from friends and well-wishers but it will be officially inaugurated at the first anniversary ceremony in Iyanfoworogi, Ife on December 7, 2019. Also, during the anniversary, which will be from December 6 through 8, there will be commissioning of some borehole projects as part of the vision for the community.
We cannot do all these projects alone, we are counting on you to help build a great community together. Your generous donation will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless!
