According to the Monarch: “I’ve always spent quality time with the Youths before being crowned as the traditional ruler of the Community, Ifaki Ekiti. I’m a Youth, despite the responsibilities tradition has given to me as the father of all. It’s not possible for me to bypass or witch-hunt the Youth constituency because that’s where I belong.

This TEAM, shall join hands with other stakeholders on the mission to taking Ifaki to the highest pedestal and at the end, it’s my belief that IYC as a body shall become the cynosure of all eyes. Our readiness is total and our decision is to see Ifaki become a place where the lives of the entire Youths shall have a new twist and toast. We shall collaborate with the necessary security outfits to ensure that Ifaki is ripped of drugs abuses that could cut short the life-expectancy of an average Youth and the incessant security vices that have put Ifaki on the negative badge.
