His Imperial Majesty, Oba (Dr) Frederick Adegunle Aroloye, Arubiefin IV (JP) OFR, Owa of Idanre and Paramount ruler of Idanre Kingdom had recently called on parents not to under estimate children and wards as only God knows their future potentials.
Oba Aroloye gave this advice today in his Odode Idanre during the commissioning of the Reception Hall newly renovated by Hon. Alhaj Tajudeen Adeyemi Adefisoye alias, “Small Alhaj”, the Member of House of Representative who is representing Idanre / Ifedore Federal Constituency. Oba Aroloye said he has all along been seeing signs of greatness in Alhaj Tajudeen Adefisoye right from his childhood days when he has always staying with him in the palace. Oba Aroloye enjoined women to join hands with their husbands like Alhaja Adefisoye for their children to attain greatness in life. He commended Alhaj Adefisoye for his zealous desire to develop Idanre as could be seen in his spending close to #20million to renovate the structure and also because shortly after winning his election, Alhaj Tajudeen appealed to him to create forum for all Idanre elected sons so as to have concerted plans for developing Idanre kingdom. Oba Aroloye described the day’s event as a unique one, the type of which he had never seen since he ascended the throne almost five decades ago and called on all Idanres to assist him with prayer.
Earlier, Alhaj Tajudeen Adefisoye said he had been wondering for long on how to show his appreciation for the love Owa had been having for him since his childhood days and thus revealed that more would still come in future. He revealed that he had determined long ago to give the palace befitting facelift. He used the occasion to appreciate his parents for their encouragements and supports through thick and thin, especially during the election and expressed happiness that Allah had helped him to make the palace enviable and reminded that he had called on all other politicians to also contribute their own quotas to Idanre kingdom’s development and assured that within the next twelve months there will be more progress to report.
Hon. Vincent Akinde, SDP stalwart used the occasion to mention some of the contributions of Alhaj Tajudeen Adefisoye like giving scholarships to 100 students in higher institutions, reinstatement of four Idanre sons wrongly dismissed from Nigeria Police Force, repairing boreholes and planning new ones, facilitating traveling abroad for many Idanre sons and daughters, empowerment of 150 women on quarterly basis, helping in enlisting Idanres in Nigerian Army and the Police Force apart from those whose professional trainings in tailoring, plumbing etc he facilitated and also provided their equipments to earn their livelihood amidst others.
