COURTESY VISIT TO THE AKRAN OF BADAGRY, HRM DE WHENO AHOLU MENU TOYI 1
Yesterday, September 27, 2019, “The Very Branch”, led by the Chairman, ESV Adedotun Bamigbola FNIVS, FRICS, paid a courtesy visit to the Akran of Badagry, HRM De Wheno Aholu Menu Toyi 1, at his palace to kick start the 3-day Outdoor activity organised by the Outdoor Sub-committee at ASCON Resort, Badagry.
The courtesy visit was also in honour of the 83 year old “First Class” monarch who has reigned for 43 years and recently celebrated his birthday. He is the permanent Vice Chairman of the Lagos State Council of Obas.
As part of the NIESV Visits Badagry event, “The Very Branch” also visited the “First Storey Building” in Nigeria, which attracts well over thirteen thousand visitors in 2018. The foundation of the building was laid in 1842 while the house was completed in 1845.
Members had the opportunity to climb the 174 years old wooden staircase of the building and viewed the first English Bible in Nigeria and Yoruba version of the Bible that was translated by Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther. The building also has the panting of the fallen Agia Tree, the spot where Christianity was first preached in Nigeria.
The visit of the day was rapped up as members were given a tour of the 250 housing units Peridot Parkland Estate by our Partners, Echostone Nigeria. The estate is constructed of Cellular Molecule Concrete technology, with units delivered in 14 days of construction.
Our Outdoor activity continues in Badagry till Sunday, September 29, 2019. It is all learning and fun!
