....................................................................

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

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.

ONDO SOCIAL STRUCTURE

‎Ondo Town: A C.M.S Mission was opened in Ode Ondo in 1875, and in 1877 the Rev. (later Bishop) Charles Phillips arrived. The Lagos government took an interest in Ondo, hoping to find a route to the interior of Yoruba country which would by-pass the area continually stricken by Ibadan-Egba-Ijebu wars. Although the southern part of the Ondo kingdom was very sparsely inhabited it was recognized as being within the domain of the Osemawe; and both Takuro, an Ijesha who settled at Aiyesan in 1881, and Ipaiye, an Ile Oluji man who had been a slave in Lagos and who founded Ajebandele in 1891, sought the permission of the Oba to settle in his kingdom. In 1898 Agbabu was opened at the instigation of the British Traveling Commissioner, and goods from Lagos were shipped to this port and then head loaded along the bush paths to Ode Ondo. With the construction of roads from Ode Ondo to Ile Ife, to Akure, and to Okitipupa, the importance of Agbabu has declined"--From P.C. Lloyd, Yoruba Land Law, 1962.

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.

Role of Women In Socio-Economic Development of Ondo Kingdom

Women generally have peculiar instincts, especially when examining issues relating to social and economics matters. Such instincts could be seen in their attitudinal behaviours exhibited in trading and cultural practices. The Ondo women, like others across the World also possess social and economic instincts which are put into play to promote the socio/economic development of their town. This is evident in the level of activities in which they are involved. However, one major area where the contributions of Ondo women to the development of their homeland can easily grasped has to do with the practical demonstration of certain norms, belief and customs which are instilled on their children.
