The immediate past Honourable Commissioner for Finance and Economic Planning in the State of Osun, Dr. Adewale Bolorunduro has felicitated with a former Governor of the state and Interim Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Abdulkareem Adebisi Akande, on the occasion of his 79th Birthday.
In a congratulatory message to mark the birthday of the elder statesman released by his Media Office in Ilesa, Dr. Bolorunduro extolled Chief Akande for his wisdom, sacrifices, forthrightness, patriotism and astute leadership acumen since his days of service in the Old Oyo State.
Dr. Bolorunduro described the tenure of Chief Adebisi Akande as Governor of Osun between 1999 and 2003 as one which was characterized by selfless service and monumental development to mankind leading to a solid foundation for the progressive governance of the Rauf Aregbesola-led administration.
Bolorunduro said “Chief Adebisi Akande, Baba Omo Kekeke himself, has continued to be a bridge between the present and the past with his enormous wealth of experience in public service as a true democrat which has been of immense benefit to many of us who are his political children,” the Former Commissioner added.
The former commissioner then prayed that the Almighty God grant the celebrant long life, more strength, increased wisdom and vitality as his experience is still direly needed especially as Nigeria and the State of Osun moves into another critical electioneering period.
