Alayunre of Idi-Ayunre Visits CRIN

His Royal Highness, Alayunre of Idi-Ayunre, Oba Muritala Salami Olumini (Oluokun 1), paid a familiarization visit to the Institute on November 9, 2021. Oba Olumini appreciated the CRIN Management for the development the Institute is experiencing under the new Executive Director, Dr. Patrick Adebola. He added that the ED had visited him twice, thus, his visit is also to reciprocate his kind gesture. He appealed that the CRIN management should continue their social responsibility to the community. He equally stressed that the relationship between CRIN and the community should be symbiotic, to this effect he requested that the Institute should not hesitate to beckon on him in any area where his intervention would be necessary be it land dispute matters and the likes. In his response, the ED, who was unavoidably absent at the meeting due to official assignment at Abuja, but was represented by Dr. A.O. Famaye, appreciated the King and his entourage for coming to the Institute. He assured the King of Institute’s support and cooperation with the community. He solicited the King’s support in tackling stealing of Institute’s property which are perpetrated by members of the community. It was added also that the youth in the community should be sensitized to tame their youthful exorbitance as this is noticed in their activities within the community. The Royal Father was urged to maintain good relationship with the Men of the Police Force in order to ensure peace in the community and their assistance in wading off criminality in the community.

Furthermore, the King was informed of the benefits farmers in the community stand to enjoy in the Institute. He was informed that several information on CRIN mandate crops could be accessed by farmers within the community which will enhance better yield in their various farms. In his reaction, the King promised that he will call the meeting of all the Village Heads within the community and instruct them to warn their subjects to desist from act of stealing and other act of criminality that could disrupt peaceful co-existence of the community and the Institute. He prayed for more transformation under this present administration.
