Ekitipanupo commends Lagos State Government By Banjo Ogunrosoye


Members of EKITIPANUPO, a forum of eminent Ekiti indigenes both at  home and abroad  with genuine passion for the progress of Ekiti land under the leadership of Prof Akin Oyebode, hereby commend His Excellency, the Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN, for  his patriotism and compassion. Ekitipanupo salutes Lagos State Government for donating a 3 -bedroom apartment to the family of late Naval Officer A. D Joshua Awe, who was brutally murdered in the Atlas Cove fiasco in Lagos.  It will be recalled  that Naval officer A.K Joshua Awe, a native Ekiti State was brutally murdered at Atlas Cove, during the invasion  of the Jetty by suspected  members of the Movement for the Emancipation of the  Niger Delta at the height of the Niger Delta crisis in Nigeria.

Governor Fashola’s act has again demonstrated the sterling qualities of a reliable leader which has eluded majority of our domestic ruling class.  By this act of compassion, the governor has given hope to the hopeless and equally shown that there are still reliable leaders in a society that the poor and needy can lean on in the midst of a greedy
and avaricious political class.  By his donation to the family of the dead, he has definitely touched the lives of a hapless family whose breadwinner had been consumed by the irresponsibility and reckless attitude of our selfish political class. We have no doubt that your Excellency will be remembered for good having done  the  very best for the bereaved family.

We commend the action of Your Excellency especially, the kindheartedness to the bereaved family of our late brother and salute Your steadfastness in support of the needy in our society.

On behalf of all members of Ekitipanupo, the Executive Council sincerely appreciates Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN and prays that God in His infinite mercies will continue to direct him in the bid to build a virile Lagos State and a better Nigerian State, where truly the labour of our heroes past shall never be in vain.

Signed  .
Banjo Ogunrosoye
