Ayefele lauds Ajimobi’s fatherly roles, good leadership

By - - [General ]

Popular music producer and gospel musician, Mr Yinka Ayefele, has expressed “profound gratitude” to Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi for assisting him to remodel and rebuild his Music House to a better edifice.

Ayefele, who runs a popular radio station, Fresh FM, in Ibadan, the state capital, yesterday led top management of the station on what he called a “thank you” visit to the governor.

The façade of the building housing the radio station had been partially demolished by the state’s Physical and Urban Development Control last August for contravening physical planning and urban development laws.

But the governor intervened, following personal pleas by Ayefele and the expression of his preparedness to comply with the restructuring model proposed by the agency.

The agency justified its action on the initial refusal of the management of the building to rectify the infractions and its insistence on safeguarding lives and property of residents and commuters plying the Music House area.

Aiyefele, who described Ajimobi as a listening father and good leader, said he had learnt lessons from the saga.

The popular musician expressed appreciation to the governor on the need for mutual understanding and cooperation between the government and citizens.

He said: “I have come here with my management team to say a big ‘thank you’ to our father (Ajimobi), a good leader and someone who I will boldly describe as a good example to this generation for his large heart.

“I also want to thank all the people working with the governor, especially the committee that worked with our management committee on the remodelling and reconstruction of the Music House for their exemplary conduct.

“God has wiped away my sorrow through you (governor). You have helped me personally in this matter because I have been down emotionally since the partial demolition of the building. I have learnt lessons from the incident. Now, the building has become a better edifice.

“On behalf of my family, my workers and all the good people who expressed concern when the incident occurred, I hereby express my profound gratitude to the governor for the kind gesture.”

As a mark of appreciation, Ayefele presented a sketched portrait of the governor to him.

Ajimobi hailed the gospel musician for the bold step.


The governor said institutions and citizens must not forget the lessons in the matter.

He said: “It is the grace and mercy of God that have made it possible for us to be where we are today; to be able to contribute to the society. I must first admit that my brother, Aiyefele, has contributed and he is still contributing immensely to the society.

“As government, it is our duty to promote and enhance the safety, security and socio-economic interests of the citizens. As a government, these we have been doing since 2011. We have been promoting peace, security and the rule of law.

“I am glad at your initiative to come here to express gratitude; even the initiative you took initially to come and discuss with the government when our agency insisted that the rules guiding the urban and physical development must be adhered to.

“We agreed on a damage control because laws had been broken already. It is gratifying that you came and agreed that you would comply with the laws. I must say that you played a major role as a good citizen to ensure that government’s goals and objectives were protected.

“The Music House is no longer a death trap. Those within the neighbourhood and commuters are no longer being obstructed from the traffic situation on adjoining roads. Those cursing me then, where are they now that we have corrected the contraventions?

“Citizens should know that government is for them and will always support them. But in doing this, they should also be prepared to obey the laws of the land because nobody is above the law.”
