Ijesa APC Stakeholders Organize 'Homecoming and Award Ceremony' for 2019-2023 Political Office Holders...Exclude some (SEE LIST)

The Ijesa stakeholders in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State are set to welcome their selected sons who served in various political offices between 2019 and 2023. 

The event, “Homecoming and Award Ceremony,” scheduled to take place on Friday, June 16, 2023, will hold at the prestigious Oba Aromolaran Civic Centre in Ilesa, Osun State by 12noon. 

A statement released by the organizing committee of the event stressed that the occasion aims to appreciate the outstanding contributions of the political office holders who served in the last four years, in the administration of former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and in the national assembly. 

According to the statement, “These individuals are being recognized for their exemplary and meritorious service to the state and country; and demonstration of their Omoluabi ethos. 

These great ambassadors of ours symbolize the core values of integrity, selflessness, and dedication to serving the people. 

“We are immensely proud of our sons who didn’t only exemplify unwavering commitment to service, but refused to compromise the standard, truthfulness and loyalty for which we are noted. 

"These bonafide Ijesa sons have demonstrated exceptional leadership and have been true representatives of our constituency between 2019 and 2023,” the statement read

Those to be honoured at the event include, Hon. Ajibola Famurewa, former Chairman, Osun State SUBEB; Hon. Lawrence Babatunde Ayeni, former Member, House of Representatives, Ijesa South Federal Constituency; Rt. Hon. Timothy Owoeye, former Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly Others are Hon. Festus Komolafe, ex-Member, Osun State House of Assembly, Atakumosa East/West; Hon. Charles Akinola, ex-Chief of Staff; Hon. Remi Omowaiye, ex-Commissioner for Works and Transport and Hon. Adedayo Adewole, ex-Commissioner for Agriculture. 

In addition to honouring the foregoing office holders, the statement also indicated that the former governor of Osun State, His Excellency Adegboyega Oyetola, would also be recognized for his outstanding service and unflinching commitment to the interest, welfare and well-being of the people of Ijesaland and Osun State. 

However, it has been observed that a number of former commissioners, of Ijesa South extraction, who served in the cabinet of Oyetola or served the state from 2019-2023 are missing on the award list. The affected persons are Mr. Segun Olanibi, former Commissioner for Rural Development, and Mr. Taiwo Akeju, former Commissioner for Political Affairs. 

Hon. Wale Adedoyin, who represented Ilesa West state constituency in the Osun State House of Assembly, did not also make the list. No reason has been given for this conspicuous omission but it could not be unconnected to unresolved allegations of anti-party activities leveled against the trio by their party, the All Progressives Congress ( APC).
