Governor Fayemi noted that Pa Emmanuel Abiodun played important part in the education development in the Western Region and Ekiti State in particular, as a teacher at the Christ School, Ado-Ekiti, describing the deceased as a thorough bred teaching professional who tutored people to become champions in their chosen fields of endeavours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“When we look back to what Baba achieved in his life time, we can not be sad, no reason to be sad. We are thankful to God that he lived well, served well and fought good fights, won many battles and he did his own on mother earth before transiting to God’s bossom, and for that, we have every reason to celebrate him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“He taught many people who have become champions in their chosen fields. We thank God for the life of excellence, service and sacrifice”, Fayemi stated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said though nobody, no matter how old, would cherish the departure of a loved, the fact that Pa Abiodun left a legacy called for celebration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He urged the people to reflect on their lives on what would be said of them after their departure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also speaking, Governor Sanwo-Olu noted that Pa Abiodun was a role model, a disciplinarian, who used his teaching profession to impact positively on the lives of so many people.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said that though he was no more, it was imperative for those he left behind to appreciate God for what He used the deceased to achieve, declaring “Pa Abiodun lived a good life and his memories will linger for a long time”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On his part, former Governor of Bauchi State, Adamu Mua’zu, described Pa Abiodun as a man who did his best for the people, his environment and beyond.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He added that he was a father of all and a good teacher to those who had the privilege of being his students.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I am not here to share the sadness or mourn about the death of Baba. I am her to celebrate his death because his life is worthy of emulation. He lived his life to the fullest and part of what he had done is to raise this young and dynamic man God has chosen to be the governor despite all the obstacles”, Mua’zu said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While urging the governor and his family to be happy because his father lived an impactful life, the former charged Abiodun to work harder has he was chosen by God to work for the people.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I have not x-rayed the work of Governor Abiodun, but I have told him that he is God sent. He must work for people and for God, and I am sure he is doing exactly that. I have no doubt that he is working for the people.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“His Godfather has been God and God did it. I am sure he is going to work even much harder than he has done,” the former governor said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Responding on behalf of the family, Governor Abiodun said his father was a great teacher who used the teaching profession to reshape the society by producing eminent personalities who are making positive impact in the country.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He expressed his gratitude to God for granting him the grace to survive his father, whom he noted was a humble and dedicated family man who contributed his modest quota to the development of not only his immediate family, but his community.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The governor further urged Nigerians, irrespective of their positions or wealth, to always endeavour to reflect on their lives and see what they can do to assist fellow human beings, submitting “living a life that does not impact on others positively is fruitless”.

Ogun To Begin Sales Of 100 Trucks Load Of Rice At Cheaper Rate-Abiodun …the poor, elderly, vulnerable to get free allocation

Ogun To Begin Sales Of 100 Trucks Load Of Rice At Cheaper Rate-Abiodun
…the poor, elderly, vulnerable to get free allocation

 

 

 

Ogun State has purchased 100 trucks load of rice to be sold at cheaper rates to residents of the state to cushion the effect of the rise in the prices of goods in the country.

The state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun stated this on Wednesday while speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting in Abeokuta, the state capital.

Prince Abiodun disclosed that the rice would be subsidized and made available at the rate it was before the recent astronomical rise in the prices of the commodities.

He, however, said the poor, the elderly, and the vulnerable would enjoy free allocation.

“We have decided to give our people foodstuffs like rice, garri, beans. I have ordered almost 100 trailers of rice, they will start offloading them tomorrow (today).

“We have decided that the poor, the elderly, and the vulnerable will be given the rice free of charge, while others will have to buy the rice at the price we formally bought it before the dollar rose very high so that it won’t be a one-off and we can continue till the issue of the dollar is settled,” he said.

Governor Abiodun assured the people of Ogun State that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is fully in charge and knows what he is doing.

According to him, the President is on top of the situation, adding that Nigerians will soon start seeing the manifestation of the several policies put in place to curtail the rising inflation

He added that the Central Bank Governor, Mr. Yemi Cardoso, at a meeting he had with him, has assured that the dollar would soon fall.

“Everything we are experiencing at the moment is very transient, it will soon pass away. Let me assure you, the meeting we had yesterday (Tuesday) and today (Wednesday) after I left that meeting this evening, I am convinced that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is fully in charge. He knows what he is doing.

“With the plan that he has begun to implement, you will soon begin to see the change. We must remain very hopeful.

“The last meeting I had was with the CBN Governor. He said I should quote him and tell you that, very soon, the dollar will crash,” he said.

Abiodun noted that his administration in realization of the present hardship facing the country took some steps to cushion the effect, even as he recalled that an intervention worth more than N5 billion was announced by his administration last week.

Tertiary students of Ogun State origin across the country will receive N50,000 each, the governor said.

The secondary and primary school category with about 800,000 students, Prince Abiodun noted, will be done in phases, with the first phase, comprising 100,000 students getting N10,000 each.

Those not captured now would get five exercise books while waiting for the next phase.

The governor said women and the elderly would benefit from free medical care with insurance cards worth N18,000.

Abiodun further noted that his administration would set aside about N500 million monthly to offset the payment of deductions for civil servants in the state public service.

Governor Abiodun urged Nigerians, especially the youths not to allow themselves to be used by unscrupulous elements to disrupt the peace of the country.

“It is now so bad that they have planned to use our youths, give them money to disrupt the peace of the country by staging protests.

“What we going through isn’t what other countries around the world haven’t also experienced. But they were very patriotic, calm because they know the solution is on the way,” he said.
