    At last! What an amazing governor!!

    Indeed honor is due to this very clever, humble and kind gentleman who lives unknown today but unforgotten.

    It was indeed a fact that he didn’t not want to waste the life of the driver who knocked down his daughter in jail, but decided that something good should come out of her untimely and painful death at a very tender age, what a great or divine opportunity it was when he was asked to make a compensation request.

    Having benefitted himself from a scholarship to study in Swansea, the united United Kingdom, he returned home to serve his motherland, joined the Nigerian army as a captain stationed in lagos and continually discussed his hopes and aspiration for educational infrastructures in Ila, particularly for the youth, “tomorrow’s future” he would call them.

    Also for the record, many primary and secondary school students, children of friends and relatives out of Ila Orangun were invited to present their lists of books annually and he bought them books for the new school session every september until his retirement.

    Suffice it to say that the doors of his home dubbed ‘getaway hotel’ was also thrown open to numerous numbers of youths seeking greener pastures in Lagos and eventually many of them ending up abroad.

    Indeed an unsung hero.
