The newly elected President of Ikorodu Dog Breeders And Lovers Association (IDBAL), Mr. Onibudo Sheriff Olayiwola, has expressed appreciation for the immense support given to him by members during the electoral process.
Olayiwola, who today, the 20th of May 2023, was elected the President of the Association, used to be a former Financial Secretary of the association.
Other members of the executives are, Vice President -Adeniran Adetola aka Dat Kennel, General Secretary- Akisola Oluwadamilare aka Copious Kennel, the Assist General Secretary- Olawale Kehinde aka King Wealth Kennel, the Financial Secretary- Ayanfowora Ogundamola aka City Height Kennel, the Social Director- Igwe Joshua aka Reckon Paws Kennel and the Public Relations Officer- Tomi Oyafemi aka Churchill Farms.
Speaking at the event, Olayiwola said: “ I have enjoyed the privileges of the association. I promise that benefits will be cascaded to members. I hereby promise members that the security of the paw friend (dog) will be guaranteed whereby member dogs will be traceable by microchipping them in case they stray. They’ll be traced and reunited with the family.”
He further stated, “Sensitisation and seminars are also part of my plan, which members will benefit from, and these will improve members’ Standard of Operating Procedure (SOP). It will also make IDBAL members more professional in canine management holistically.”
He further explained that dogs serve as security for not just their owners, but also neighbours because the fear of the unknown will make intruders abort their evil missions.
He noted that dogs were psychotherapy in nature and make a man keep going without being depressed.
“Dogs are so lovely to be with, even within and outside the compound. Dogs are man’s best friend. They are so lovely to be with, within and outside the compound, dogs are man’s best friend,” said Olayiwola.
