Abiodun noted that his administration is proud to identify with the people of Ilaro and Yewaland, adding that the Oronna Ilaro Festival has grown beyond celebration, but a convergence to reflect the collective aspiration to internalise the economic, historical and spiritual antecedents, and unity of the past heroes and leave a better legacy for the coming generations.
