The Executive Chairman, Osun State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Honorable Israel Ajibola Famurewa, says the Yoruba's rich culture is unique and prominent across the globe and therefore should be nurtured. 

He said the Yoruba race should value what they have and not allow foreigners hijack the culture from them as more and more foreign countries are joining in promoting the culture. 

Honourable Famurewa stated this in a statement he personally signed to congratulate the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi,Ojaja  II, Ile-Ife indigenes and residents, Osun State as a whole as well as the Yoruba race generally on the occasion of this year's Olojo festival. 

The Osun SUBEB Boss who urged Osun indigenes to maintain the ethos of the virtuous they are known for throughout the period of the festival as they welcome foreigners into the state and Ile-ife especially, also urged foreigners who will be visiting the state for the festival to feel at home, saying Osun people are accommodating.
