What's new

As we all know, the survival instinct can also lead to a primitive instinct. This attitude may also be responsible for the disinclination of the Ondos to cooperate with one another so as to form a common front. It is everyone for himself and God for all syndrome.

If the Ondos can moderate their cynical attitude in favour of an attitude that encourages the principle of being one another brother's keeper, there is no doubt that the Ondo will fly like eagles and not be weary. All Ondos have a part to play in this great movement for the sensitization of our people and the emancipation of active ideals such that it may be said of us “we did what was within our means to do

Appraisal Of Ondo-Ways Of Greetings That Are Going Into Extinction

Although the people of Ondo Kingdom belong to the Yoruba race that have their peculiar ways of greetings that distinguish them from other tribes. In the older days male and female children in ONDO Kingdom are taught how to greet people by their parents. For instance in the morning the male usually prostrate full length on the ground to greet their fathers by saying "Ke Bai" why they do same to their mother by saying "Ke Yei". The female on the other hand will greet their fathers and mothers with two knees on the ground by saying "Gbo i ja o bai" or" Gbo ija o Yei". The greetings is not restricted to the parents alone children are also taught how to extend complimentary to elders or seniors which is demonstrated by using the word "Ke egi" or "Gbo ija egi" by males and females respectively

Ondo Kingdom - Why We Are, Where We Are

Late High Chief Bayo Akinnola (Lisa of Ondo Kingdom)

There are some fundamental things that determine or dictate the way we are and to a great extent, what we do. In simple terms, this situation is believed to be affected by who your parents are, from whom certain attributes are inherited; the environment in which you live in terms of the limitation or opportunities that the physical environment confers and the exposure it allows. Other factors, which are of great relevance in this regard, are the custom and tradition; the norm of the society into which one is born and in which one lives in terms of their intrinsic value systems.

In considering the Ondo situation, it is only natural to evaluate her against the backdrop of these identifiable parameters even though the list cannot be regarded exhaustive.

A REALITY-CHECK ON THE ONDOS

It certainly couldn’t have been a misnomer on the part of the colonialists to have named the geographical space encompassing the present Ondo and Ekiti States as “Ondo Province” right from their time and until the creation of states in 1976, when the same entity was re-christened Ondo State. It simply underscored the trail-blazing status of the Ondos even in times of yore, when most indices of accomplishment were benchmarked by them in virtually all fields of enterprise: ecclesiastical matters; education; business; farming etc,. Either through a fortuitous geographical nearness to the sea that enabled early contact with the enlightening education of the white man, or through some rather inscrutable characteristics and traits that have now crystallized to define the average Ondo persona, the Ondo Ekimiguns, because of the assertiveness and self-assuredness that were attendant to this early exposure, have been laboring, rightly or wrongly, under the perception – even of neighbouring communities – of insufferable overbearingness if not, suffocating arrogance.
