The Speaker of the Oyo state house of Assembly; Honourable Adebo Ogundoyin, donated consumables and clothes to one thousand widows, indigents and people with special needs in his Constituency; Ibarapa North East at a ceremony commemorating his father’s death; Chief Adeseun Oguntona Ayisa Ogundoyin.
Hon Adebo Ogundoyin replicated his father’s renowned philanthropic gesture at an event held at Eruwa Town Hall, where Political and Community leaders described the Late Ogundoyin as one of the finest human beings to emerge from the region. They also stated that the great man will be remembered for his generosity and willingness to help others.
According to Hon Ogundoyin, his late father greatly loved the people of Eruwa, Lanlate and Ibarapaland, and he lived his entire life to serve them.
The Speaker said it was painful that he was too young to have fond memories of his late Dad and added that continuous tributes from the people, his family members and friends no doubt showed that he was not only sociable but also charitable and highly regarded by his kinsmen.
The Speaker said; “As part of the 30th year remembrance activities of my late Dad- Chief Adeseun Ogundoyin, whose commitment to humanitarian, philanthropism and community development was undisputedly gracious in his lifetime, I and my siblings extended hands of support to 1000 widows, indigents and people with special needs in our communities in memory of a great man that lived all his life raising stars.”
” Dad, even after 30years…your sons, daughters and grandchildren have continued to benefit from your numerous good deeds. You’re a great man, even in the grave. We will love and cherish you forever!”
Ogundoyin and his other siblings; Adesoji, Adetoye and Aderemi Ogundoyin, vowed to continue to promote and uphold the legacies of their late Dad. Hon Ogundoyin also assured everyone present that he will not abandon his people even after leaving office but will work to surpass the enviable records of service to humanity set by his father.
Some Community and Party Leaders who spoke at the remembrance program including Alh Morakinyo Kasali, Chief Jacob Adeoye, Prince Wole Opadeye and Prince G.A Layiwola said that although the death of Chief Adeseun Oguntona Ayisa Ogundoyin was a deadly blow to the entire people of Ibarapaland, it is heartwarming and gratifying that his children and family members, especially the Speaker are continuing his good work
