In term of strength, everybody could confirm that you had it over 80%, and this is the reason why the news of your passage was received by us with a rude shock.
You were determined to succeed, and you were excelling against all odds.
My political Odyssey brought us together in 1998/1999 under the leadership of the late Alhaji Lam Adeshina, GREAT LAM, the former Governor of Oyo State and under whom you became the Hon Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly in 1999.
Great Ife! This is our pride and collective heritage as we are both Alumni of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile – Ife, State of Osun.
You could be best described as a Goal – Getter, an Administrator per excellence. You were hardworking, religious, and friendly to everyone that comes your way.
You were a proud Son of Oyo Alaafin. A true Representative of the people of Oyo West and Oyo East as at the time you were in the House of Assembly and up till today, that you said good Night to everyone, as the Hon Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Oyo State.
We all love you, but God loves you better.
I am using this opportunity to commiserate with Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State; Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi, lll, JP, LLD, OFR, Alaafin of Oyo, your families, friends and associates
You have evidently left indelible ink in the sands of time.
May God Almighty give everyone the you left behind the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss
Good Night, Rt. Hon Speaker, Kehinde Ayoola.
