The Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Sunday joined well-wishers across the country to extol the leadership qualities of the former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, as he turns 80 today.
Governor Akeredolu described the former governor of Edo State as an enigmatic leader with inviolably unassailable leadership qualities whose life is a study to all.
The governor’s Birthday message is contained in a Press Release signed by his Senior Special Assistant (Media & Publicity), Ojo Oyewamide.
According to Akeredolu, history preserves the memories of men and women of exemplary courage and impeccable character just as a great achiever is not considered important, solely on the basis of material acquisition.
“Rather, Governor Akeredolu says, the immeasurable virtues and the strong contents of character as embedded in Oyegun, are what announce the real achiever.”
“Oyegun’s has been a life of selfless, dedicated and uncompromising service to humanity, the Governor enthused.”
“Therefore, as Chief John Odigie-Oyegun attains the age of 80 years on earth, Governor Akeredolu joins numerous other Nigerians to celebrate this enigma of note.”
“Relishing that Oyegun still bubbles with good health, radiating the rare gift of contentment, the Ondo State Governor says, he is enthralled by the rare qualities of the man he describes as an uncommon gift to Nigeria.”
