The Egbeda-Egga Day Central Planning Committee under the leadership of a Labour Union Icon, Comrade (Prince) Mike Olanrewaju, has kick-started activities for a Spectacular Celebration of the Day in 2024.


Egbeda-Egga Day is a joyous occasion that brings together sons, daughters, in-laws and friends of the community. It is a day set aside to celebrate the rich cultural heritage and tradition of the people of Egbeda-Egga; promoting unity, progress, and community spirit.


The Central Planning Committee, led by Comrade (Prince) Mike Olanrewaju, has been working tirelessly to ensure a successful and memorable celebration this year. The committee has outlined a comprehensive plan, including:


– Cultural performances and exhibitions – Igbafun, Bereke, Amuro, Eyo, Dance of Maidens, etc.

– Traditional cuisine – Obesakoro with pounded yam; Obeolo with pounded yam; among others

– Community and Honorary Chieftaincy awards and recognition of eminent personalities

– Funfair and games for all ages

– Special guest appearances and keynote speeches

– Fund-raising for upgrade of facilities at the Community Health and Civic Centres, as well as the secondary school in the community and provision of more solar powered street lights.

Speaking during its meeting at the weekend, the Central Planning Committee Chairman, Prince Mike Olanrewaju informed the 17- member team that this year’s celebration is going to be taken to a higher level as cultural icons and internationally recognised cultural groups, including Eyo from Lagos are being tipped to perform at the event scheduled to hold on Saturday, 7th September, 2024.


He said sons, daughters, in-laws and friends of the community should get ready to experience the warmth and hospitality of Egbeda-Egga as the people come together to celebrate their rich cultural heritage and oneness.


Comrade Olanrewaju called on members of the Committee to brace up to the task ahead since this year’s celebration coincides with the Centenary of St. Michael’s Anglican Church, Egbeda-Egga, and by extension, Christianity in the community.


He added that the Centenary of Christianity in Egbeda-Egga is another milestone that must be celebrated with high praise to God in thanksgiving and joy.


He implored all sons, daughters, in-laws and friends of Egbeda-Egga to start preparing for the celebration of this year’s Egga Day, which events shall climaxed with a Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, 8th September, 2024.


Also speaking during the meeting, the President of Egbeda-Egga Development Union, Dr Emmanuel Dare Otitolaiye disclosed that the standard set last year can only be taken higher, urging members of the committee to put in their best in making this year’s event a huge success.
