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

"Lisa of Ondo Kingdom 2001 - 2013"


It is time to trade respect as a reciprocal irrespective of age, sex, influence or personality within the society in the interest of unity among Ondo Ekimogun Sons and Daughters and establish an achievable vision for Ondo Kingdom.


It is time to remove the cloud of negativity among us and think positively together with embracement of the path of honour for the betterment of our Community.

The Values We Lost for Sacrificing Our Traditional Court System.

Although the Traditional Court system and the adopted European Court style, now adopted as ‘modern’ have some elements in common, especially with respect to the process, sequence and conference of witnesses and judicial observers, values, objectives and effectiveness however set the traditional court system above.

Even as I do not intend to demean the European Court system, my motive is to ‘show’ what values we have sacrificed at the altar of craving for profane modernity.


I’ll be as brief as possible and avoid idle rhetoric’s overcome your understanding of my presentation; as heavyweights collectively have acknowledged -the shortest punch is the deadliest!

Ondo City Vision 2015 & The Spirit Of Self-Help

There are extant documented evidences that Ondo Kingdom is about 504 years old: about two hundred and thirty years older than the United States of America, the doyen of modern civilization! Of course, this is hardly believable due to the ancient city's lack of the accoutrements of modernity: pipe borne water; good network of intra-city roads; up-to-date healthcare facilities; constant supply of electricity; recreational facilities etc.

Even in what has now come to be regarded as a parochial sense of governance, Ondo Kingdom, until about six years ago, has never been favoured with any substantial state or federal government presence despite the fact that the whole state - including the recently excised Ekiti - was called Ondo State to underscore the administrative importance of Ondo kingdom in colonial history. But, whatever the town lacked in government establishments, her people more than made up for in education, resourcefulness, and enterprise.

History is replete with the pioneer-status of the Ondo people in the professions, academics and business. Recently the awareness of a people highly steeped in culture and tradition, widely travelled and knowledgeable in many aspects of governance, focused on the spirit of self-help or, what is termed community development. This led to the establishment in 1986 of the Ondo Development Committee ODC, a veritable vehicle of much needed development to the community through the annual Ekimogun Day festivities. The Oba Adesanoye Civic Centre, a showpiece of Ondo community efforts and pride, remains the flagship of the exertions of this committee.

Philosophical Milestones Of Life for Men

If at 20 years, you are still confused about the path to take in the journey of life, do not worry as the directions are not clear-cut at this age.

If at 30 years, you still have not found your way to the path, hurry up because some of your contemporaries in your age bracket have already started the journey. This again, is the time to be close to your God and deepen your spiritual awareness.


If at 35, you have not found a woman to cushion the roller-coaster effect that the ride of life often is, better make the plunge because lifelong habits become ossified around this age: whether you become a responsible father/husband or an alcoholic lay-about is determined right at this juncture.

If at 40, you are still not sure whether your wife is right for you - that is, whether you are in a hopeless entanglement - this is the age to take a decisive action and go on with your life. If you don't, nothing from this age ever will fall into place; even your children will probably not see your viewpoints in the event of major matrimonial misunderstandings.

The Genesis of Ondo Kingdom

Otunba Damilola Oladimeji (Leyo Royal Ruling House Ondo Kingdom)

The history of Ondo-Ekimogun sprang from the Palace of Alaafin of Oyo in the ancient city of Oyo when the wife of Oba Alaafin Oluaso bore him twins (a male known till today as Orere and a female also known as Olu) which is forbidden in the Palace of every Oba in Yoruba land. The then Alaafin of Oyo love the twin’s mother called Olori Olu so much and on hearing the news of the newly born twins, he lamented that this is a mysterious child "Ese-omo-re" which later transform to Osemawe as Oba's title in Ondo Kingdom.
