In a quick visit to the Olojudo of Ido, Oba Ayorinde Ilori-Faboro as burial rites for his late father kicked off, Prophet Olu-Alo said the widows would enjoy therapy, medical checkups, free food and other forms of care where necessary.

He also reaffirmed it while addressing widows and other townsmen who trooped out to celebrate the life of the cleric’s father, Pa Joseph Omowaye Alo.

Speaking in Yoruba, the Cleric said, “I’m passionate about making life better for youths and widows. Hence, I’m creating something like a Restaurant, a Care Centre that would tend to the needs of widows and less privileged people.

“Precisely, I am making a commitment to ensure their feeding twice a week.

“I am pleased and surprised by the fact that these women in these unstable economic times, donated several tubers of yam, palm oil and other foodstuff as their contribution for this burial,” he said.

In his address, the Monarch thanked the Cleric for putting Ido-Ekiti on the National Map and acknowledged that the late father of the Cleric, Pa Joseph Omowaye Alo would indeed be proud of his legacy his family had set in the community.
