Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has congratulated Osun State governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who turns 59 today.
In a statement by the Ooni’s media aide, Comrade Moses Olafare, Ooni Ogunwusi described the governor as a selfless leader, a dogged fighter and a lover of the masses.
The statement reads:
On behalf of the Obas, Chiefs and entire good people of Ife kingdom, The Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi heartily felicitates with the Progressive Governor of the progressive State of Osun His Excellency Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola on his 59th birthday.
Ogbeni as popularly called undoubtedly deserves to be celebrated by all for he has spent the larger part of his life selflessly serving the masses either through activism that cut across student unionism, civil society, labour and Yoruba self determination or as a public servant with a heart of Godliness. His involvement in the struggle to return Nigeria to the democratic rule in the 1990s driven by his passion for the socio-economic and political emancipation of the poor can never be forgotten.
May the Almighty OLODUMARE give this dogged fighter, a lover of the masses, very upright, discipline and honest manager of Public resources good health, long life and a plenitude of fulfillments.
Igba odun odun kan!
Afon a gbo ko to wo!
Comrade Moses Olafare,
Director of Media and Public Affairs,
