They all eulogised Babalola and urged him to continue with the laudable and monumental development in Oyo Council.
They unanimously agreed that the commendation should be included in the communique of the meeting for record purpose.
A part of the communique signed by Adegbite, Babatuyi and the Secretary of Osun State Council, Comrade Bukola Elufadejin, stated that: “The house noted with excitement the significant progress recorded by the NUJ Oyo Council, in recent time, hence the house commended members of the State Working Committee led by Comrade Ademola Babalola for setting the pace for a modern Oyo NUJ, urging members and leaders at the Council to sustain the giant strides,”
