The Ondo State Executive Council has approved the adoption of an Indigenous Anthem which projects the tradition and culture of the Yoruba tribe.

The State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu who made the announcement at the commencement of the State Executive Council Meeting, said the anthem will henceforth be recited immediately after the National Anthem at official and public functions.

The Yoruba anthem was rendered by the cultural troupe of the State Ministry of Culture and Tourism and sang by all members of the State Executive Council.

The lyrics of the Oodua Anthem goes thus;

Ise wa fun ile wa

Fun Ile Ibi Wa

Ka gbee ga

Ka gbee ga

Ka gbee ga fun aye ri

Igbagbo wa ni pe Bati beru la bomo Ka sise

Ka sise ka jo la

Isokan ati ominira

Ni ke je ka maa lepa

Tesiwaju f opo ire Ati ohun to dara

Omo Oodua dide Bo si ipo eto re

Iwo ni imole Gbogbo Adulawo.
