AN ADDRESS DELIVERED
BY HIS ROYAL MAJESTY OBA EMMANUEL ADEBOWALE ADEBAYO (FCIA,JP) ELEMURE OF EMURE EKITI ON THE OCCASION OF INAUGURATION OF THE
STEERING COMMITTEE/SUB COMMITTEES OF THE ADASSA-ADUMORI FOUNDATION INC ON EMURE EKITI DEVELOPMENT, TODAY 7th MAY 2009.
The Chairman Emure
The President Emure
Members of the Traditional
My Lords Spiritual
Ladies and Gentlemen.
On behalf of myself
and the entire members of Adassa-Adumori Inc, based in United States of America, I welcome
you to the inauguration ceremony of the Steering Committee/Sub-Committee to facilitate the success of the vision, mission
and assistance of the organization on Emure development.
A generational era
is in the pipeline, history is being made and some people by providence are writing their name in gold, leaving legacies and
indelible marks in the sand of time.
I make bold to state
that what is happening in Emure Kingdom
today marks the beginning of God’s purposed heavenly order being hatched on earth. Someone may ask if there had been
any prophetic revelation that a new Emure would come to reality in any future to come, I can state categorically that I never
met such record in the Palace.
However, here we are
today to witness the inauguration of the Steering Committee and Sub-Committees that will pilot a life long project initiated
by Dr. (Mrs.) Funmi Hancock, a worthy, humble and patriotic daughter of the land who is whole heartedly committed to a God-inspired
course in the company of people of like minds that a vision must be realized to kick start a programme of events for Emure
Permit me to trace
briefly how Adassa-Adumori Foundation came on board. During my coronation ceremony and presentation of staff of office on
2nd February 2008 at Elemure’s Palace, I made a deep hearted and down-to– earth speech on my vision
for Emure Kingdom before an unprecedented crowd that Emure people had never witnessed in the past.
The speech ignited
a fire, potentially seated in the spirit of Princess (Dr.) Funmi Ogunleye Hancock and she quickly seized the opportunity of
a life time. What happened there after is now part of history.
I want to charge members
of the Steering Committee and the various Sub-Committees to carry the same spirit and if possible, more of Princess (Dr.)
Funmi Ogunleye Hancock on this voyage. We cannot afford to fail. The challenges are enormous but the reward is heavenly and
sweet as instruments in the hand of God Almighty for the development of Emure
Kingdom that generations unborn would admire in the history of a people.
The Steering Committee
is the apex Committee. Its functions are to plan and oversee the implementation of all the projects and ensure accountability
at all levels.
