…”Like Father, Like Son” – Oba Oluwole
The atmosphere was quite electric as the residents of Ajebo, Isiun and Aseese communities in Obafemi Owode Local Government, Ogun State, on June 3, 2018, took possession of three 500KVA transformers donated by the 2019 gubernatorial hopeful, Hon (Dr) Ladi Adebutu.
The donation brings the total number of transformers delivered to the LG to 8. Other communities that had earlier benefitted from the largesse include Ofada I, Ofada II, Adigbe, Alaafia/Kobape and Egbeda.
The donation of the transformers was a timely intervention by the lawmaker as it puts an immediate end to the long period of darkness in the communities.
Hon Seye Sonuga who delivered the transformer to Ajebo community on behalf of Adebutu, expressed the readiness of Hon Ladi to liberate the people of the state from APC government’s shackles of retrogression. He hinted them of Adebutu’s plan to execute more projects in Ajebo.
The Olu of Ajebo, HRH Oba Reuben Oluwole, said that he was not suprised at the uncommon gesture of the billionaire farmer saying his philantrophy was hereditary. “Like father, like son”, he said.
In his remarks at Ajebo and Aseese communities, Hon Adebutu, who was on familiarisation tour of the LG/interactive meeting with party faithfuls, stated that the gesture was in line with his welfare agenda for the people of the gateway state. He posited that he acceeded to the request of the communities because of his belief that Ogun people had a right to a good life.
Chief Sulaiman Ajepeaye, Secretary to the 319 Baales of Igbeyin, Chief Ndoka Nma, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Aseese Town, Chief Muyideen Kukoyi, Asoju Baale of Isiun and Mrs Omolara Martins, Iyaloja of Isiun, in a unanimous voice, pledged the unfliching support of the members of their various communities for the 2019 aspiration of Adebutu.
