“I want to use this
opportunity to thank all Ikale sons, daughters, friends and
well-wishers in the United States of America and across the world for
trusting me with the leadership of Ikale World Congress at the 2011
convention of our organization in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for the
next two years,” Mr. Ademola said.

Ademola said he salutes the courage of all those whose effort gave
birth to Ikale World Congress, and kudos also go to the entire Ikale
sons, daughters and well-wishers who are spending their valuable time
and scarce resources to sustain the growth of the organization.

He said, “Ikale World
Congress is yet another attempt by amiable indigenes of Ikale to foster
unity and promote Ikale cultural heritage; to make life better for
ourselves while laying a good and sustainable foundation for the
generations to come.”

The Gala night was styled by musical blending by Prince Aladesanmi
Agagu and his African Star band. Issue discussed at the convention
includes; Unity among Ikale people, Economical, Educational and social
Development of Ikale people.

At the Convention on
August 14, 2011, the Out going President of the organization, Dr
Durojaiye Akindutire presented the names of the recipients of the IWC
scholarship, while the Chairman of IWC Board of Directors, Dr Salewa
Olafioye enjoined all Ikale in Diaspora to support Ikale land with
there economical and human resources.

Comparatively, the
Chief Host, Chief Dayo Aiyebo who is also the coordinator of IWC in
Philadephia stated that Unity is the currency of power. The IWC chapter
in Philadelphia members treated the participants with different types
of delicious African cuisines including Pupuru and marugbo.

However, Mr. Samuel
Ademola has pointed that a foundation has been laid, but the task of
building the house is a collective responsibility. “The executive board
is preparing a blue print for its two year tenure which will be made
available to all members shortly; we encourage all members to
contribute to it promptly. We must harmonize our divergent views and
opinions. We must say the truth and stand by it; the truth maybe
rejected at first but will stand the test of time,” Mr. Ademola said.
