In his pursuit of unity within Ajoni, the Executive Chairman of Ajoni LCDA, Prince Michael Ogungbemi, has embraced sports, with a particular focus on Ayo Olopon.

The promotion of our indigenous culture is facilitated through the local sport of Ayo Olopon. As a mentally engaging game, it fosters a positive mindset, quick thinking, sound decision-making, and strategic moves. This game instills a can-do spirit and enhances the resilience of players, encouraging them to see challenges through to the end.

Ayo Olopon, a traditional game among the Yoruba people, demands significant cognitive skills and mathematical prowess. Primarily a recreational activity, it engages players in a mental challenge that taps into their strategic thinking and mathematical abilities.

This competition is structured such that there will be preliminaries which will be played at the Palaces of the respective communities that made up Ajoni before the finals which is scheduled to hold at the Council Secretariat.

It is expected that the competition will kick off later this month.

This effort by the Chairman is all in his bid to ensure that the very act and essence of governance reaches the nooks and crannies of the communities and as well touch people’s life’s with his developmental agendas as he is driven by Innovation, Passion and Creativity (IPC).
