Peter Obi Celebrates Ọbá Kayode Adetona On His 90th Birthday

Today, I would like to felicitate with a highly revered Nigerian and father figure to many, Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona, the Awujale and Paramount Ruler of Ijebuland, on his three manifold celebrations today; his 90th birthday, his 64th anniversary on the throne and the Commissioning of his School of Governance for Postgraduate Studies and Research at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State.

May I also seize this opportunity to congratulate you on your well-deserved conferment of the grand commander of the order of Nigeria, GCON. As one of the longest reigning monarchs in the nation, whose reign has brought peace and progress among your people,
and continues to contribute. In many ways towards building a better nation, you deserve to be well celebrated.

Driven by your love for a better nation, and following your desire to equip future Nigerian leaders with the right leadership education and training, you endowed a Professorial Chair in Governance at the Department of Political Science at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, commissioned as School of Post Graduate Studies. We, therefore, celebrate your impact, patriotism, and nationalism. Your fatherly guidance and words of wisdom are always appreciated.

As you mark your birthday and continue to reign in honour, I pray God continues to bless you with good health and wisdom. I had planned to be in Ijebu-Ode to personally pay respect and loyalty, but unfortunately, the flight I took from Enugu to Lagos could not land and was diverted to Port Harcourt due to bad weather. By the time we made it to Lagos, it was impossible to travel to Ijebu-Ode. I will arrange to come and pay my respects in the near future. -PO.

There are various milestones a person achieves in life, and being able to celebrate a 90th birthday is one of the most special ones of all. Yes! Reaching the age of 90 is worth celebrating, as it commemorates a person’s rich life and experiences.

May you have a happy and healthy 90th birthday! I hope you enjoy many more beautiful days ahead of you.

Live with Purpose, Love with Passion. Remember to be happy

One ❤️❤️❤️

“A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.”
