Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu Idanre Hills’ Post: Tajudeen Adefisoye Reacts

Mr Tajudeen Adefisoye, a member of the
House of Representatives, has frowned at a
statement credited to the wife of the Ondo
State Governor, Mrs Betty Anyanwu-
Akeredolu, rating her pet project over the
ancient Idanre Hills.
This was contained in a statement signed
by Adefisoye, a member of the Social
Democratic Party, representing Idanre/
Ifedore Constituency, and made available to
newsmen by his Special Adviser on Media
and Publicity, Mr Oluyemi Fasipe, on
Tuesday in Akure.
Mrs Akeredolu had on Sunday, posted on
her Facebook page, Betty Anyanwu-
Akeredolu, “Forget Idanre Hills, BEMORE
Summer Bootcamp is set to be the new
tourist attraction in Ondo State. Believe it or
Not!-Arabinrin,”
The Idanre-born lawmaker said that no
human initiative could ever come close to
the ancient Idanre Hills, which is a
UNESCO-rated world heritage site and
approved tourist destination for international
tourists.
Adefisoye, who explained that the hills,
which is 3, 000 feet above the sea level, had
existed for 500 million years, and it was one
of the most beautiful natural landscapes,
not only in Nigeria but in the whole of
Africa.
According to the lawmaker, Idanre Hills is a
unique ecosystem, upon which the cultural
landscape and rare beauty of nature are
completely integrated.
“Idanre Hills, which represents a cultural
site that encompasses ‘Owa palace’, old
court, Belfry, Agbooogun Footprint, Thunder
Water, Burial Mounds, among other cultural
values, can never be overtaken by any
human initiative,” Adefisoye noted.
He added that ‘Mare Festival’ would not
have been conceived to attract global
tourists if Idanre Hills did not have money-
spinning tourism capacity in addition to its
display of aesthetic beauty of nature.
Adefisoye, therefore, urged Governor
Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to reactivate the
yearly ‘Mare Festival’ in order to open the
state to global tourists and investors by
leveraging on the cultural values embedded
in Idanre Hills.
Adefisoye, however, lauded the BEMORE
initiative of Mrs Akeredolu, which he
described as a good platform for girls to
become complete women.
“It is an envisioned preparatory avenue to
help girls triumph over intimidations,” he
said.
