The Olowu of Owu-Abeokuta, Oba Adegboyega Olusanya Dosunmu, Amororo II, has described chairman of Premier Paints and Mercyland Group of Schools, Chief Abel Gbolahan Ogooluwa Bankole, as a great gift and asset to the Owu kingdom.
The eminent monarch spoke during the 70th birthday of the Owu chief last Thursday in Ifo, headquarters of Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, Southwest Nigeria.
”It is not only when one has something to point at that he expresses gratitude to God. What we are doing today is really worthy of celebration. I speak with pride, confidence and gratitude to God that, what we are here to celebrate today was donated by one of my chiefs. It is really worthy of celebration that it was achieved by an Owu son.
”I want this to be a challenge to other Owu people, Chief Bankole may be spending his money, but he is also sacrificing many things, just to ensure that other people and children attain greatness in life. I thank God and I hope you will help me thank Him with gratitude in form of clappings to God. He gave us someone like Chief Bankole, we will forever be grateful to HIm”.
”I appreciate you all for honouring our invitations. Today I call on God and the creator of Heaven and Earth who created Ogooluwa Bankole. It is not only here that Bankole is showing the grace of God through donations, but all lover Yorubaland and others.This is not the first, second third, or fourth that he has been willingly making this kind of gesture. May God Almighty continue to less him and enrich him as he strives to cater for mankind” Olowu prayed.
