The twins including babies, infants, youths and adults dressed in the same designed attire happily paraded before Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi and other distinguished guests in celebration of the 2021 World Twins Festival organized by the Igboora community.
The unique event which had started early last week with various academic and sporting competitions among the twins was rounded off on Saturday with an acrobatic display, cultural dance and presentation of prizes to the best-performed twins.
Speaking at the occasion, the Oyo State Governor Engineer Seyi Makinde who was represented by Mr Adejumobi Adebowale assured the people of the Igboora Community of his continuous support in ensuring rapid social-economic development.
The governor promised that the Cultural and Tourism aspects will be catered for more than before in the next year 2022 budget and the 2022 edition of the Igboora Twins Festival will be more elaborate.
Speaking with Newsmen, the Olu of Igboora, Oba Olajide Titiloye said God has graciously blessed Igboora Community with Multiple births, that out of every one thousand living births One hundred and fifty-eight twin sets come from Igboora.
Oba Titiloye added that people of Igboora always nourish twins and probably that is why multiple births keep coming daily when some other parts of the World see twins as an abomination.
He implored the government both State and Federal to support in funding the yearly Twins celebration that Igboora may become a tourist Centre which can eventually become Revenue Generation Centre.
Among the Royal fathers in attendance were Okere of Saki and Alado of Ado- awaye.
