  • By News Editor

Proverbs 22:29 states “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” This biblical verse is the true reflection of Governor Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji , who clocks 56 today. Without any iota of doubt, the 56th birthday of Governor Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji is worth celebrating considering how he has made meaningful impacts in the last one year of his administration as number one citizen in the Land of honour.

Mr. Governor believes that an occasion of one’s birthday should be a day to reflect on one’s purpose of existence in life and, this according to him, is “to serve the humanity”. Therefore the governor in his charismatic leadership and passion for the vulnerable people decided not to have an elaborate feast for families, friends, political associates and professional colleagues. Rather he has chosen the path of honour and genuine love for the needy in the society by asking people to channel the resources they intend to use for congratulatory advertisements in celebration of his birthday to taking care of the vulnerable people in the society, schools of handicaps and blinds. The governor, based on his passion for the state has also declared his intention to spend the better part of today to attend to many important State matters.

Mr. Governor gesture is going to bring relief to thousands of Ekitis, especially the vulnerable, whose lives are expected to be touched directly or indirectly by the millions of naira that could have been used for birthday messages and gifts for the governor. This decision is a reflection of his conviction that “the best birthday gift anyone would give him at this period is to identify those at the bottom of the pyramid wherever they reside, lift them up by putting smiles on their faces-that way, they would have lifted his heart too.”


As a man who believes in putting smiles on the faces of others; someone who is passionate and empathetic towards people around him, the governor’s decision to have a low key celebration deserves a lot of accolades.

His emergence as the governor of Ekiti State was historic, considering the support that heralded his emergence as the standard bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the party’s gubernatorial primaries. He won the June 18th, 2022 governorship poll landslide, defeated other candidates who contested against him.

Governor Biodun Oyebanji, in his one year in office has announced key appointments in the state to set the ball of governance rolling in the land of honor and he has achieved a lot through developmental projects across the council areas.

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji has presented a budget estimate of N159,572,482,915.61 Billion Naira, christened “Budget of Sustainable Growth and Development” to the State House of Assembly for the 2024 fiscal year.

So far, Governor Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji action, which is largely putting personal touch to governance has set the state is on the right path to Greater Ekiti.

As you celebrates a major, I wish you the fulfilment of your heart’s desires for the good people of Ekiti.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Governor!
