The Traditional Worshippers who stormed the Oyo State Government secretariat in Agodi, Ibadan at about 11:00 am were seen with different placards asking the state government to stop the marginalization and neglect of the association.

 

According to Oyo Affairs News correspondent, the traditional Religion worshippers demanded for five holidays. One of the placards reads,

“Orisa devotees are also citizens of Oyo State”

Addressing newsmen, the General Secretary, Traditional Religion Worshippers’ Association of Nigeria, Dr. Ifayemi Ifakayode, said the protest was a sequel to the discrimination suffered in the hands of the Oyo state government and the refusal of governor Seyi Makinde to give them an audience and approve public holidays for the traditional worshippers.

Also speaking, the President General, Traditional Religion Worshippers’ Association of Nigeria, Oyo State Chapter, chief Olukunmi Egbelade, charged governor Seyi Makinde to give necessary regards to the traditional religion worshippers and also rehabilitate tourist Centers across the state.

While receiving the traditional worshipers on behalf of governor Seyi Makinde, the executive assistant to the governor on Security matters, retired CP Sunday Odukoya, appealed to the protesters to be civil in their agitation and assured that he will deliver their messages to the governor.
