“He was our mentor and unarguably a very prominent Oyo kinsman who was a beacon of hope, and he will feel great in the life beyond with his legacies sustained”.

“If only by such endearing grace of benevolence, individuals including my humble self have no choice than to aim towards pursuits of greater influence on humanity by increasing our efforts in that regard and that is what will be our priorities in leading the vanguard to surpass expectations”

“We are already working out various programs and action plans that will activate the sustainability of those legacies to celebrate the life and times of the great leader and father of modern Oyo town.”

“Apart from naming monumental projects, facilities and places after him, honours quite deserving, which we shall vigorously pursue with the government at the state and national levels, yearly symposiums, awards and grants in his honour to indigenes to promote values and support will be more pronounced by several of us who hitherto have been silently emulating our great leader.”

“Before now it has always been the case of the younger elephant a calf can’t be blowing the husk simultaneously with the mother elephant, but now that our Leader has gone to rest, he has handed the baton to us and we can’t afford to disappoint or fail him on expectations.”

“We thank the Almighty Allah for the great life he lived, quite worthy of emulation and we pray that the Almighty God will grant him Aljannah Fridaus”
