Time: 10.00 hours prompt.

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

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

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 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 ......"
