The Executive Chairman of Ibadan South East Local Government area, Hon. Alawode Emmanuel Oluwole has joined other numerous Nigerians to congratulate the Deputy National Chairman (South) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja on his attainment of 64th birthday today.
In a congratulatory message personally issued and made available to journalists, Hon. Alawode who is fondly called ‘Arole Omituntun’ by his admirers, said Ambassador Arapaja is worthy of celebrating in view of the fact that his life has been full of blessings and he has been using such blessings to impact the lives of numerous individuals that have had contact with him positively.
Hon. Alawode hinted that Ambassador Arapaja has remained one of the few individuals that started their political carrier as council chairman whose profile keep on rising after their exit from office.
He added that this is so for Ambassador Arapaja because of the fact that he has never disconnected himself from the people at the grassroot as other people does.
According to him, “from the available records, his Excellency, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja transited from being a local government chairman to become member of the House of Representatives. Thereafter, he became the Deputy Governor, Ambassador to the countries simultaneously, PDP Vice Chairman South West and within the spate of six months, he became the Deputy National Chairman (South) of out great party. This is a rare grace that only God bestows on whoever he chooses.”
As our leader in Ibadan South East Local Government, his leadership style is superb and worthy of emulating.
I therefore on behalf of the entire good people of Ibadan South East Local Government congratulate him on this auspicious birthday celebration and pray God Almighty to grant him long life with sound health and prosperity. Happy birthday Sir.”
