      My Brother,
      On the assumption that you are going to be my guest at the grand finale of the week long programme on December 1,2012, I can tell you that tourist have a chance of seeing the famous Oronna shrine and the relic of centuries old chain Oronna a warrior prince from Oyo empire used to leash his pet leopard. Tourists also have a chance of watching the Agemo  and egungun masquerades. There is also food tourism under the "poosu/apara" cultural food competition. This year also we are having a Sisi Ilaro, a cultural beauty pageant to promote true Nigeria/African womanhood. The royal ruling houses are also competing in horse riding display.
      So my brother You are welcome to come and enjoy tourism packaged as cultural cum economic development activity'.
      Cheers.
