Chairman of Dynasty Airline Management, Senator Rilwan Adesoji Akanbi, has paid tributes to Mrs. Omotola Oyediran, daughter of the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who died at the weekend.
The Okanlomo of Ibadan described the deceased as a selfless leader who impacted lives.
In his tribute to Oyediran, Akanbi said: “Mama Oyediran, just like Baba Awolowo, represented true and selfless leadership; the type our generation needs and should be enjoying for a very long time. This is why I am particularly pained by her death at a time like this when Nigerian youths are going through their toughest time.
“Being born of the great Awo brings a great responsibility to maintain high standards in almost everything and she excelled at this.
“Along with her husband, the foremost Professor of Preventive & Social Medicine, and Administrator, Allen Bankole Oladunmoye Olukayode Oyediran, they have built their own legacy of professionalism, honesty, loyalty to the Yoruba nation and patriotism as Nigerians.”
The Senator recalled her words to him on September 18, 2017 at Methodist Basic School, Agbeni, Ibadan when they handed over reconstructed buildings and infrastructure to management of the school.
