By Chief Rotimi Makinde
Nothing can give us a loud hurray than the joy of seeing our dear leader, father and friend clocking 81 years old. I Hon. Rotimi Makinde celebrate an elder stateman and former deputy governor of the State, Sooko Adeleke Adewoyin on the occasion his 80th birthday anniversary.
Not just another year but a very good reason to celebrate good health, happiness and fulfilment.
Baba is a jolly good fellow, an accomplished barrister at law, a veteran politician and above all, he was born because of Ile-Ife with full and undiluted blue blood. Sooko Adeleke Adewoyin served as deputy governor under Chief Bisi Akande both of who witnessed 20 multiply by 4 years with unblemished enviable profiles.
Having the like of you helps us in no small measure to know the missing value in politics and indeed some of us are privileged to increase our knowledge by getting closer to someone like you, more reasons we plead that God continue to spare your life.
What then is the joy or what is it that deserves appreciation than for someone to journey into this sinful life and live to wittness such a gracious occasion with bountiful spirits and resounding records that speak volumes itself.
I am your pupil in politics, I am your lieutenant in anything to move our party, our community and our state forward.
Baba mi, as I join millions of your admirers in celebrating your 81st birthday, I would love to see you bubbling all the time and for many more years in joy and in happiness to lead us to the promise land. O baje ti, so-so- so- sooko. Age gracefully.
