Makinde immortalizes Adagunodo in Oyo as Adeleke Ignores

Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde has declared his readiness to immortalize the immediate past National Vice Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party in the Southwest, Hon. Soji Adagunodo by building a zonal secretariat of the Party in his honour.

Makinde said this on Thursday in Ibadan during the lying in state of the corpse of Adagunodo.

Adagunodo died in May this year after a brief illness. He had his last breath in the United States of America.

Speaking at the event, Makinde described the former Chairman of Osun PDP as a complete party man, whose death remains a great loss to the party.

He said, “in honour of Hon. Soji Adagunodo, I shall be constructing a zonal secretariat of our Party in southwest. The secretariat will be in Ibadan and it will be named Soji Adagunodo House.”

In the meantime, some PDP members have lambasted Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke over his refusal to attend the Service of Song in honour of Adagunodo.

The event, which was held in Osogbo on Wednesday, had in attendance former Governor of the State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola; Former governorship aspirants, Prince Dotun Babayemi and Mr Dele Adeleke, and several other stalwarts of the PDP.

According to Felix Aderanti, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who attended the service of songs for the late Soji Adagunodo, stated that it was regrettable that both parties were unable to come to an amicable agreement before the passing of Hon. Soji Adagunodo.”I made the decision to go to the Service of Songs in order to pay my final respects to the departed, a notable and renowned politician. The freshly sworn-in commissioners and Permanent Secretaries might be greeted at a later time.

He continued, “I really wish the state government had attended the funeral.”Another party member and native of Obokun, identified as Busayo, blasted Senator Ademola Adeleke for ignoring the service of songs hosted by the former PDP chair.Busayo stated that it is rather inconceivable that a former Chairman of a ruling party and someone who passed away as vice chairman of the party, South West, could be handled in such a way. Senator Ademola Adeleke’s action, according to Busayo, disparages the efforts and achievements of the late Soji Adagunodo in the party.

“Nobody would live indefinitely. Those who are making fun of Soji Adagunodo right now should be aware that they will also pass away one day. I pray that God would forgive him of all his sins and wish him eternal peace. An obviously upset Busayo stated, “He will be sorely missed.”
