Prince Olasunkanmi Shotonwa, Chairman of Ipakodo development association made it known to reporters that subsequent editions of Ipakodo day celebrations will be promoted in October.
Speaking to members of the press at the palace of the Sekumade of Ipakodo, post unveiling of the official banner and Ankara for the maiden edition of the Ipakodo day celebration, Prince Shotonwa stated that the first edition will be utilised as a template to improve its follow-up extravaganza.
He continued, “You can consider this maiden edition as an experiment to further show the public what we’re made of, showcasing our cultural and traditional endowment to the rest of the world while building a synergy with residential businesses”.
“If you also noticed, in our program lineup, Wednesday has no activity on it, because we’re yet to ascertain a unique event to execute on that day. That gives room for creative event planners to come in and meet with us to share ideas and make the festival a long-lasting fun period”.
“It should be on the record, based on our planning trajectory, Ipakodo day celebrations will be organised in October every year” Prince Shotonwa added
