Dare Adeleke, Executive Chairman, Oyo Pacesetters Transport Company and Oyo PDP Chieftain, has felicitated with Chief Yekini Ayoade on his Birthday.
Adeleke, while wishing Ayoade a wonderful birthday celebration, described the former PDP Deputy National Chairman and Seriki Musulumi of Yorubaland as a brilliant man of impeccable values and principles.
Adeleke said: “Life indeed is a reflection of how we live it. The more we age is the more we have past years of experiences and legacies to live behind.
Today, I celebrate my leader, my father and mentor, Chief Yekini Ayoade as he adds another year to his most fulfilling life.
We cannot forget in a hurry Alhaji Ayoade’s contribution to the PDP and the nation at large.
Today, I salute a man who was not only a founding father of Oyo PDP, a Deputy National Chairman of the party and a godfather to leaders and rulers, but also a great man who is instrumental to the peace being witnessed in Oyo and the South West today, within the party.”
According to Adeleke: “Ayoade may have retired from active politics but he has never been far from the party and it’s political actors.
Alhaji Ayoade, like a retired Captain of a conquering war ship, has been silently watching over his wards and lending his voice, experience and time to stabilizing the ship not only in times of crises but at those times when encouragement is needed. He is a politician whose relevance has never dimmed”
Adeleke noted that: “Some men attain greatness while others are born great but in Ayoade, greatness is endowed by the creator and he has never at any point compromised on those inherent qualities which make a man great. Such qualities as, astuteness of character, humaneness of spirit, unshaken integrity, consistent acceptance of all, no matter their status or levels in society, ability and willingness to teach and pass down knowledge, philanthropy and so much more.”
“Today, I wish Chief Yekini Ayoade, an excellent gentleman, a most hearty birthday.
May God keep keeping you in good health and prosperity as you continue to bless the world with your wisdom, goodness and gifts.”
