“The 2020 AJE FESTIVAL Planning Committee ably led by Princess(Dr) Toyin Kolade are working assiduously with the Arole Oodua Olofin Adimula to ensure a better and more superlative edition of the festival this year with several foreigners coming to participate, especially from Cuba, Brazil and America. Olafare said.
According to Princess Toyin Kolade captured in the statement, Ooni Ogunwusi with white pigeons in his hands will lead the procession of participants from the palace ‘Ile Oodua’ to the Aje shrine known ‘Idi Aje’, located a kilometer away from the palace right inside the Ejigbomekun market believed to be oldest market in the world where prayers for economic and commercial prosperity of the Oduduwa race worldwide and Nigeria in particular will be made, after which the pigeons are released into the air.
“Iyalaje Toyin Kolade last Saturday led her committee to brief His Majesty the Ooni that not less than twenty Africans in diaspora have already confirmed their flight tickets to arrive Lagos before Saturday from where they will be conveyed to Ile-Ife for the Aje festival holding on Monday which will witness a long procession by the the participants to be led by the Ooni himself holding some pigeons in his hands which will be released into the air after prayers are offered at the shrine(Idi Aje)”.

The festival annually holds on a Monday traditionally known as ‘Ojo Aje’ in Yoruba parlance. During this Aje Festival, participants including foreign tourists, business men and women would purchase a white pigeon each, this is symbolic of purity and peace.” Olafare added

Revamps NextGen Account with Premium Offerings, Partners DRB LasGidi
… Attracts Zero Charge On All Transactions
Pan-African financial institution, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, has revamped its NextGen account which targets students in tertiary institutions and members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), with added features and benefits.
NextGen is a suit of personal accounts designed to meet the needs of young persons, grooming and growing with them from teenage years to adulthood. The bank takes up an additional role of mentorship these young ones and assists with tips towards guiding their future. The added benefits would confer premium services to the young account holders.
UBA, which operates in 20 African countries, introduced NextGen Account to encourage active savings among young people and teach them to manage their money effectively while enjoying world-class services that suite their lifestyles
Jude Anele, Group Head, Retail Banking, UBA said the importance of inculcating in young people the culture of saving and being finance-wise cannot be overemphasized, hence the importance the bank attached to the account.
“The NextGen Account is our way of putting students in charge of their money so they can do more, especially at this critical stage of their lives with an account that comes free of fees,” Anele said.
“The new NextGen Account opens students and NYSC members up to several benefits and opportunities, including multiple digital channels that makes banking just another fun thing to do on their mobile phones,” the Retail Banking head added.
As a plus, the NextGen Account holders stand to win pocket money, complimentary invites to prime events and enjoy zero charge on all transactions.
Group Head of Marketing Dupe Olusola, who also spoke about the revamped NextGen Account disclosed that NextGen which the bank says is more than just an account, will partner with DRBLasGidi, a three-member group to ignite the interest of young people in the offering.
“DRB LasGidi have proven to be culture shapers, pioneering the popular Alté (meaning alternative) movement, which promotes self-confidence and encourages young people to embrace their individuality.
“As the face of the Alté subculture in Nigeria, DRB LasGidi is a perfect representation of the NextGen lifestyle of self-confidence and uniqueness,” Olusola said.
Bolaji Ojodukan popularly known as BOJ, who spoke on behalf of DRB LasGidi, expressed excitement at the partnership.
“Like most young people today, we were just being ourselves. But now, we have a movement and now our own bank; the Alté Bank of Africa,” BOJ said.
