Sanwo-olu Eulogises Dele Momodu At 60
Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has praised Chief Dele Momodu on his 60th birthday, describing the occasion as momentous for a man who has dedicated his life to the celebration of Africans through his profession.
In his congratulatory message on Saturday, through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, Sanwo-Olu said Bashorun Momodu’s milestone is worthy of celebration considering the numerous achievements he has to his credit.
‘‘you have, through your chosen profession, shown leadership, doggedness, confidence and dedication to every course you believe in.
‘‘As a believer in egalitarian societies, which can only be guaranteed by democracy and the Rule of Law, you pitched tent with the late business mogul and politician, Chief MKO Abiola as campaign manager in the run up to the botched June 12, 1993 presidential elections.
“You held similar position in the campaign of Chief Olu Falae, the Presidential candidate of the Alliance for Democracy-All People’s Party joint ticket in 1999 elections.’’
‘‘I also note with admiration your passion, which lies not only in your profession of pen-pushing but more in a just society. You have displayed the enthusiasm for a better Nigeria in more practical ways.
