…Says computer tablet has application for Ifa studies

From BAMIGBOLA GBOLAGUNTE, Osogbo

The Osun State Government has announced a comprehensive plan for the state’s secondary school students to study Ifa as one of their subjects.

The state Governor, Ogbeni Raufu Aregbesola, said the schools’ computer tablet had application for Ifa studies.

Aregbesola made the relevation yesterday during the special prayers session to usher in the New Year, organized with clerics from all religions praying for the peace and growth of the state.

Clerics who offered special prayers for the state included the President General, League of Imams and Alfas in the South-West, Alhaji Mustapha Ajisafe; the Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the state, Evangelist Abraham Aladeseye; and frontline Ifa priest, Chief Ifayemi Elebuibon, among others.

The special prayer affected official functions in the state secretariat and other government offices, as top civil servants across all parastatal agencies graced the occasion held in the premises of the Bola Ige House, state secretariat, Abere, Osogbo.

Bishop of Osogbo Diocese of the Methodist Church, Bishop John Bamigboye, advised the government to compensate those whose property were demolished as a result of the ongoing road dualization in the state.

Bamigboye enjoined the government to return Christian and Islamic Religious Studies to all primary and secondary schools in the state.

Governor Aregbesola, in his remarks at the ceremony, declared that 2013 would be a year of total freedom for the state, stressing that the year would be for the people of the state a year of total turn-around and liberty.

According to the governor, the government’s major desire for the state in 2013 is to ensure the fulfillment of the desires of the state’s founding fathers, stressing: “Osun State will be freed in 2013 from hunger, mystery, poverty and under-development.”

He said his government has paid over N600 million as compensation to owners of demolished structures, even as he assured that those who were yet to receive their compensation would get theirs soon.

Aregbesola also disclosed that his government had returned religious studies to all public primary and secondary schools in the state, adding that the free computer tablet tagged ‘opon Imon’, which the government would present to secondary school students had an application for Ifa studies.

He also prayed for peace and development of the state in 2013 and urged all the people to support his government and the country with prayers, saying: “Nigeria needs prayers for an end to come to the security problem confronting the northern part of the country.”

Aregbesola added that his desire for the year was to make the state the envy of other states in the country, saying he had come to the state to do the works of God.

      I knew this man was. Crazy but, I didn’t expect it to degenerate to promoting occultism. But then, what do you expect from a Yoruba politician!

      • I don’t call people name, but how does it sand calling a state Governor name simply because he doing what he suppose to do, you cannot judge any body, if you are a Christian you yourself has seen what these foreign religion done to mess up the country. Don’t fight for God, He can fight for himself, time has come for us to go back to our root,, we are all spiritual being on a human journey, there is no time for me to debate religion, I can only advise you stick to your own believe and let other stick to theirs, stop abusing people, respect yourself and respect others.

    That is a good move in right direction, Governor Aregbesola is a true son of Yoruba, yes, all other Yoruba States must include IFA in their religious study curriculum because IFA is a complete religion like Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Bhudaism etc and it should not be wished away for other foreign religions that have continued to compound our problems day in and day out. There are white men from Europe, U.S.A, Brazil and other Caribbean countries like Cuba etc coming to Ife and other Yoruba towns to study IFA which we be exporting his ideals back to us in the new emerging world in future if action taken by Ogbeni Aregbesola is not encouraged and embraced by other Yoruba states.
    Countries like Benin and Ghana accept African religions and national holiday is given every year on a particular day for African religion believers in Benin republic.
    I am a practitioner of IFA religion too.
    God bless Ogbeni Aregbesola, God bless the State of Osun.

      THE STUDY OF IFA IS A STUDY OF DIVINITY IN TRADITIONAL WAY OF WORSHIP.
      THERE ARE THREE RELIGIONS SO TO SAY….CHRISTIANITY, ISLAM AND TRADITIONAL RELIGION.
      TRADITIONAL WORSHIPPERS WORSHIP AND POUR LIBATION TO LESSER GODS SUCH AS SANGO, OGUN, OBATALA, YEMOJA etc BUT ALL WORSHIP ONE ALMIGHTY GOD CALLED OLODUMARE.
      IN ALL THESE WORSHIPS, IFA IS THE CENTRE FOLD.

      YOU CAN GOOGLE IT TO KNOW MORE.

      IFA WORSHIP IS PRACTISED BY OTHER YORUBAS IN DIASPORA (REPUBLIC OF BENIN, TOGO, BRAZIL (BAHIA) AND CUBA)

  4. Dele Odugbami is correct on his support of Governor Aregbesola on Ifa religion. Ifa is religion that is devoid of deceits and dishonesty and these are the moral teaching of Jesus Christ, Prophet Muhammed, and God in his Ten Commandments he gave to Prophet Mose on Mount Sinai. Nigerian pastor only deceived and misled my people when he asked them to change their surname from Fasheke to the name he might have given them. Moral and good character is in the minds. My surname is Fasheke (Ifaseke) meaning Ifa is righteous and true. What else does God, Jesus and Prophet Muhammad want from you? In principle, Ifa religion want you to imbibe ethics and values in your daily dealings with others. Period.

  5. well.if yorubas can welcome islam,they should also welcome ifa after all the two lead to the same destination-where jesus is not.

  6. For once, an advocate of traditional religion. But I doubt the sincerity of his intention. To those xtians and muslims, they should understand that you cannot totally understand foreign religions as it is cultutally and historically intertwinned with their religion. To every nation a religion and prophets are given to them. Which is better, 419 pastors and Men of gods (MOG/MUG), babalawo imams, or true ifa priests. My advice to people is this, please endeavour to learn the history of your religion and you will have your senses back. Africvan traditional religion predates islam and xtianity. And if Jews are not practicing xtianity and islam in his early days is all about killings and inhouse fightings by Mohammed family, then African Traditional Religion should be embraced. And as a matter of fact religion is personal.

  7. That,s why that state is not progressing. Promoting ritualism,evil and occultic religion in the modern day Nigeria, tomorrow some people will be casting others. Is this governor insane or not? Virginity test should follow suit in their next school curriculum.

    IFA’S TIME HAS COME AND IS HERE TO STAY. IT IS RELIGION BEFORE THE ADVENT OF EUROPEANS AND ARABS. IT WAS DUE TO ETHNOCISM OF THE INVADERS THAT RELEGATED IFA TO THE BACK BURNER IN OUR SOCIETY. IT IS BEING PRACTICE IN BRAZIL PRESENTLY WITH OTHER YORUBA CULTURES.EVEN BELIZE IN SOUTH AMERICA.

    THANKS MR. AREGBE AND OSUN STATE.

    IPINLE OMOLUABI. A SESE O.

  9. why are the igbos crying foul when nobody is forcing you to practice any religion? if you dont understand what ifa means, pls ask and not classify it as an occultic practice. we the yorubas dont judge ourselves based on religion like the ibos and the hausas do thats why u’ll notice that almost all families in the west, you will find xtians andmuslims leaving in peace and harmony. ifa is a religion of peace and godliness. it promotes respect and dignity for our neighbors. it promotes justice as evil and good are rewarded accordingly here on earth.

  10. Ifa as practiced by babalawos is different from traditional herbalist (doctorsand pharmacists are not the same). Ogboni and other elements are different from ifa. We live in an age of technology, people should endeavour to google things up and get the facts, before posting things they do not know anything about.

  11. State Ifa priest should administer oath of allegiance on public office holders during their inauguration so that they can be strucked by the lightning from shango if they steal from the common wealth of the people

  12. The next new year gift in 2014 by the governor is to introduce Ogboni (though Ogboni and Ifa are interwoven) fraternity in Osun state school curriculum, in future they wouldn’t, know they were the pace setters in abhorring fetishism. This is the least developed state in southern Nigeria, and they continue to think backward.

  13. Oyinlola,s exite is the cause of all these shameful ideas going on now in that state, no thanks to justice Salami. So USA, BRITAIN , GERMANY, HOLLAND, CHINA, JAPAN, FRACE, BRASIL and even all the nations on earth that has good governance was as a result of Ifa religious practices, pls my people be wise. It is too painful for me see people living in western world like Britain and America yielding support to occultic religion Ifa here on this forum. Your stay in a civilized world has no benefit to people at home, why cann,t you suggest to the governor to allow people to live a righteous life rather than going back to Egypt.

    Ifa is a spiritual words of Olodumare given to mankind through Orunmila…Ifa religion is an independent religion unlike those imported religions.Ifa religion has a stronghold in a country like Cuba,Venezuela,Brazil,Trinidad and Tobago etc.But here in Nigeria where Ifa religion originate ifa does not have a stronghold.Many African are astray i hope they are coming back home.I will forever remain Orisa devotee…Ifa a gbewa o(ase..)
