OGUN INDIGENES COMMEND SENATOR ADEOLA ON SUPPORT

2 min read

imageOver 20,000 indigenes of Ogun State residing in Abuja and
Federal Capital Territory has commended Senator Solomon Adeola aka Yayi as the Number 1 leader of the state
origin in Abuja that identify with the cause of the indigenes in Abuja since
they came together as a group a few years back.

Giving the commendation during a courtesy call on him in his
office at the National Assembly over the weekend, the executives of the Ogun
State Indigenes’ Forum, Abuja (OSIFA) led by the president Dr. Kolapo Osibote,
said that Senator Adeola is only second to the Ogun State Government in terms
of identifying with and support for the indigenes and activities of OSIFA in
the Federal capital Territory adding that many prominent Ogun Indigenes and
representatives have shied away from identifying with their people in FCT.

He said the purpose of their visit is to show appreciation
for his selflessness to the cause of promoting unity and welfare of OSIFA
members and activities adding that it is hoped that other leaders and
representatives from Ogun State would start to emulate the style of Senator
Adeola in the last few years.

“I can say without fear or favour that without your
identification and support since 2012 maybe OSIFA would have been history and
all the progress made so far including promotion of unity, welfare of members,
an OSIFA Housing Estate in FCT and other activities promoting Ogun State would
not have been achieved. Others leaders should be aware that OSIFA is for the
promotion of the interests of all Ogun State citizens resident in Abuja and
FCT” he stated.

Dr. Osibote said the whole of OSIFA are willing to host him
as a special guest in any of their monthly meeting stressing that the first
slot for such a hosting which is to be a regular feature has been specifically
reserved for him as the foremost benefactor of OSIFA so far.

Responding, Senator Adeola who is the vice chairman of
Senate Committee on Aviation said that it is always his joy to identify with
and support his people anywhere they reside in the world be it in Lagos, Abuja,
London, USA or at home in Ogun State stressing that whatever he has done for
OSIFA is through the grace of God and his love for people.

“I am in my present position by the grace of God and the
goodwill of people. The least I can do is to give back to the people at any
opportunity. I will continue to support OSIFA and any other group with the
interest of the people at heart without any string attached.” he stated.

The OSIFA president was accompanied by Barrister S.O Q Giwa,
Vice President, Otunba Akintoye Rasaq, Secretary General and Engr. Kayode
Odedina among others.
