Topic: Where Are Ekimogun Day Donation Funds ? (Written By: Williams Fasemeji, 23 / 05 /2021 at 14:55)

PERSONAL CAPACITY RESPONSE – SPECIAL ATTENTION: We are concerned because Ondo Kingdom belongs to everyone of us and we expect things to be done appropriately with the fear of God and humanity.

It is very ridiculous to identify Ondo Development Committee as an unregistered Community Association with the Corporate of Affairs Commission in accordance with the dictates of the Governing Law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria or the Constitution, whereas other multiples Ondo Indigenous Clubs of Clubs are duly registered but mostly inactive. This allows serious perpetration of siphoning the referred funds for personal usage rather than to embark on Community self help projects that will benefit the entire populace. The collation of looters appoints powerless executive committees who are subject to removal at their discretion. Please kindly check the details through the Corporate of Affairs Commission (Nigeria) Website.

We have carried out an extensive investigation in the same direction and we come to a conclusion that in the absence of Trustees that are required and bestowed with the legal instrument to properly managed the finances of Charity or Community Organisations as outlined under the Companies and Allied Matters Act 1990 (Initially the responsibility of the Federal Ministry of Commerce and Tourist whose duty then was for the registration and administration of the repealed Companies Act of 1968), the donated and generated funds will always end up to enrich the organisers pockets or those who are in charge not the Ondo Township and its Metropolis self help development projects as expected or insinuated.

Finally, it is time to take our destiny back into our hands, the main objectives of the Ondo Development Committee have been defeated since the death of late High Chief Lisa Bayo Akinnola in 2013 (Former Regent-In-Council) and now translated to a private company to cater for just individual expenses at will.

We shall continue to create a very strong awareness with the attraction of the necessary Governmental Agency until things are reorganised in favour of all Ondo sons and daughters both at home and in the diasporas.

God Bless Ondo Kingdom.
