Yoruba Progressive Forum Greets Chief Bisi Akande At 82, Describes Him As A Detribalised Nigerian



Members of a sociocultural group, Yoruba Progressive Forum, have joined other well wishers to congratulate the pioneer Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nigeria, Chief Bisi Akande on the occasion of his 82nd birthday.

The group in a congratulatory message signed by its National Coordinator, Alhaji Olalekan Lateef, and made available to journalists in Osogbo on Sunday described the former Governor of Osun as a great Political icon and true Yoruba leader.

According to the Yoruba sociocultural group , Chief Akande is a great Ooduan and detribalised nigerian whom many youths have tapped from his wealth of experiences .

“We, members of Yoruba Progressive Forum wish on behalf of the Yorubas both home and in Diaspora to celebrate the pioneer Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on the occasion of his 82nd birthday.

“Baba Bisi Akande, the former Governor of Osun is a Political icon, true Yoruba leader, great Ooduan and detribalised nigerian. As a matter of fact, thousand of youths have benefited from his wealth of experience. He has used his Political influence to assist many.

“Baba Omo kekeeke(father of the young ones) as fondly called is undoubtedly a monumental emulation to the Nigerian youth with a very humble beginning as a mere shop keeper cum primary school teacher who later rose through hard work and professional training to become computer service provider, certified secretary and management expert with excellent record of service in both private and public sector. This Asiwaju of Ila-Orangun had indeed spent his youthful days productively to be what he is today.

“Baba Akande is an incorruptible progressive democrat whose legacy of selfless service as a core Awoist, Secretary to the State Government and Deputy Governor in the old Oyo state, a committed proponent of the return of Nigeria to democracy, prudent manager of public funds as governor of the State Osun from 1999 to 2003 and his subsequent continued progressive politics aimed at giving Nigeria a deserved good governance will always find him worthy of celebrations.

The group prayed God Almighty to continue to protect Chief Akande and characterize the rest of his life with good health and many more of prosperous years.
