"The unity of Ijesaland is of greatest importance and all should be carried along accordingly. The gold mining  company should lever its expertise to provide vocational training, on-the-job learning and concrete employment opportunities for our young people generally." Obeisun made this known on Friday 16th September, 2020, when members of Ijesa Mineral Resources Development Forum (IMRDF), were at the Ijebu-jesa to sensitize traditional rulers, religious organizations, market women associations, youth forum and some higher institution students on the inherent danger in a situation whereby some Ijesa people sell  their landed property to gold miners.
