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

The Legends of some Ondo Proverbs

1. Oyinbo Ore: There was an assistant D.O in the former Okitipupa district superintending the Ore/Agbabu/Odigbo axis who attempted to convey a log of wood for building a house with a bicycle over some distance. Unfortunately he ran into a ditch and the log fell on him and killed him. That created the legend of:
"O paa e bi s'oyinbo Ore yo mu keke gbe gedu"

2. Lakulaku: There was a very strong but rather imbecilic young man in Ondo of yesteryears who could be sent on errands by just practically anybody. He was always running and never seemed to tire even when nobody was after him.
Nearby villages did not appear too far for him as he was always seen everywhere appearing to always be in a hurry.
That created the legend of:
"Ki Lakulaku e se do fi ghen le y'Oboto 'gba mefa d'ale i le?"

3. Lalotan: Lalotan was another physically strong man in Ondo who was always in a hurry when he walked. He was a devotee of the god of Sango and whenever he was possessed of the Sango spirit, he became a man in a trance and completely dazed. Nobody could catch up with him. This created the legend that:
"Ijo yi Sango e gun Lalotan, a le le, e bo; daibupen ......"

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.

Superstitions And Misconceptions In Yoruba Culture

Superstitions and misconceptions are found in every nook and cranny of every society around the world, in the culture, customs, religion- be it traditional or modern day religions and Yoruba society is not an exception.The word superstition originates from Latin word ‘Superstition’ meaning ‘standing beyond, outliving’. From the general angle, people describe it to be a blindly accepted belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge. It is also described as irrational fear of what is unknown or mysterious, especially in connection with religion, culture or custom while misconception is just mistaken view or opinion about something.
