Oba Akiruntan visits Jimoh Ibrahim's University of Fortune, commends him

His Imperial Majesty, Olugbo of Ugbo Kingdom, Oba (Dr.) Frederick Enitiolorunda Obateru Akinruntan, CON, has paid a scheduled visit to billionaire businessman and politician, Barr. (Dr.) Jimoh Ibrahim (CFR) at his country home, Igbotako in Okitipupa Local government area of Ondo State.

Oba Akinruntan was accompanied by his High Chiefs on the visit, during which he inspected ongoing works at the site of the University of Fortune, the pet project of Ibrahim.

The university, on completion, is expected to open up the serene and agrarian Igbotako community to unprecedented infrastructural development.

At the palatial residence of Ibrahim, Oba Akinruntan congratulated him for deeming it fit to bring closer to his people such a noble and laudable project as an institution of higher learning, adding that when people are knowledgeable, they have been saved from the agony of illiteracy which berths poverty and lack.

“There is need for our people to become knowledgeable about their history and culture. We need to correct some wrong impression about skewed history of Yoruba Land. This has prompted me to write a book about the proper place of Ugbo in Yoruba connectivity, which propagandists had attempted to sweep under the carpet”, the monarch said.

While presenting his books to Ibrahim, Oba Akinruntan said Ugbo people to all intent and purpose are the owners of Ife as the reign of Obamakin Ugbomokun preceded the arrival of Oduduwa at Ile Ife, adding that it takes a fair and correct knowledge of traditional history of Yoruba Land and culture to unravel this sacred fact.

At the inspection of the University, Oba Akinruntan patted Barr. Jimoh Ibrahim at the back for the thoughtful project, stating that Ibrahim is investing huge capital not just in mere edifices or cash crow business this time round, but in a citadel of learning that will put Igbotako and Ikale Land and even the entire Ondo state on the world map.

In his reaction, Barr. Ibrahim thanked the royal father for the visit, maintaining that he felt highly honoured by the visit of such an eminent royal father of international repute.

Jimoh Ibrahim, who is into a chain of business, ranging from finance, hospitality and real estate, among others, told his guest that the University of Fortune at completion, shall attract the best hands in the world of academics.

He said: “The university shall produce graduates that will have not just a paper certificate but quality potentials that will make them problem solvers and educated people that will impact very positively on the economy of Nigeria.”
