There’s need to let us understand that;  our lives are not by accident of History but they are books written with God as The Author even before we were born!!! So, we shall be proud of who we are because we are STARS in the books written about us. For this reason, we MUST enjoy the novels as they read; savour each chapter as we go; take time to turn the pages. The books written of us will stand throughout the ages because God has said concerning us that: “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the LORD, thoughts of PEACE, and not EVIL, to give you an EXPECTED END “…. Jeremiah 29:11. Hallelujah!!!

Ongoing permanent secretariat complex of Okemesi/ldo-Ile LCDA located along Okemesi–Ido Ile road, Okemesi-Ekiti.

This time, it’s Prince Sunday Owolabi AJIBADE, the incumbent Chairman of our beloved LCDA who it’s expedient for him to be chosen once again for the sake of CONTINUITY to achieve TRUE DEVELOPMENT in the area and constituency. Whyyyyy??? You may ask. Some may have contrary opinions but TRUTH of the matter is that the COLLECTIVE INTERESTS of the people and the entire area must be above any PERSONAL and or MYOPIC INTEREST. He has started a good work which he has been showing and displaying lately which only CONTINUITY will help him to deliver for the benefits and joy of the whole inhabitants.

Prince (Hon.) Owolabi AJIBADE has a large heart, and this we all know. I am not saying that he’s a saint and neither is he the Pope’s brother. He may not have tasted the fresh redeeming blood of Calvary, yet he has made impact when he was a Member of Ekiti State House of Assembly, and even now as the incumbent Chairman of the LCDA despite the limited resources. The GIGANTIC BUILDING he has errected at the permanent Secretariat is a mouth watering project and a bright hope and or enhancement for the creation of Local Government Area process. This will make possible the emergence of another settlement in the site location. How do I mean??? People from near and far will be coming to settle down in the area and even create market for the goods and services. For instance, Ilure area was a bush and a virgin land before the Secretariat of Ekiti-West LGA was located there in 1976. What do we have now??? The place has not only become a full settlement but agitating to become a ward for POLITICAL ADMINISTRATION and STRATEGY that will be beneficial to both Aramoko-Ekiti and Erio-Ekiti. Isn’t it glorious???

The blue blood that’s flowing in Hon. Owolabi AJIBADE as a Prince of the Land of the Braves makes him a unifying factor. Yes, his princely behaviour is harmonising the two major communities even in the faces of serious disagreement and misunderstandings. He is among those who are renewing the hope and bringing sense of belonging to our great asset, Barr. Wale Fapohunda who felt betrayed despite his love, trust and contributions to the development, Progress and Peaceful coexistence and our people and the constituency. Truly a Prince!!!

Hon. Owolabi AJIBADE is a Star in the best selling book at the moment because he knows where he is going. He believes in collective responsibility and everready to put smiles on the faces of people. He has confessed on several occasion that putting smiles on people’s faces always radiates joy into his soul. Isn’t it fantastic, and a God fearing message that’s good enough to bring hope for humanity!!!

Obama as he is popularly called believes in walking with the wise. He encourages himself to seek wisdom and keep the company of wisdom-filled friends. No wonder he always takes right steps in the right direction. Scriptures are truth and faithful words of God. Proverbs 13:20 says: “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise…” He doesn’t believe in noise making but doing the work. His Principle is that “The little things you do when no one is watching determines what you become when everyone is watching!!!” For him, there’s no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies because he believes that his brain and his heart are his temples while his philosophy is kindness. For this reason and many others, there’s hope that BETTER SHALL BE THE END OF THE NOBLE MATTER of choosing him and electing him once again as the Executive Chairman of our beloved and promising Okemesi/Ido-Ile LCDA. If truly we believe in progress of the LCDA, then we MUST ACCEPT the fact that he should complete his programme for collective gains and not for personal gain. We are all qualified as earlier revealed in this message, but he is the Best Seller at the moment. It’s written that: “Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.”… Ecclesiastes 7:8.

This is my submission and I believe the wise will understand even better than I do. Thanks so much for the reading. May God bless you and bless your understandings. Shalom!!!
