Hon. Gbenga Oyekunle Power

By Tajudeen Raji (Olofamojo)

Last time I gave out some of the remarks made by Gbenga Oyekunle-Power in one of his numerous empowerment programmes where he displayed his usual passion for uplifting women, girl child and the youth.

For a man who has never occupied any political office, to make it a point of responsibility for almost 15 years ( although I came across him 12 years ago) touching the lives of people at the grassroots is an indication that he is an exceptional being.

The taste of the pudding is said to be in the eating, I know where the shoe pinches, because my ancestral home (Offa) falls into this constituency.

Let’s do a very short appraisal on the three local governments that make up this Federal Constituency.

At this juncture, I salute our royal father, His Royal Highness the Olofa of Offa, Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi Okikiola Esuwoye, the architect of ‘New Offa” for all the outstanding things happening in our town, KABIYESI; may your reign continue to usher in greater things for Offa and its environs.

For Oyun Local Government, it is a place that is also blessed with enormous human and material resources. As a matter of fact, the present Offa Local Government used to be together before it was carved out of old Oyun Local Government. Just like Offa, there have been many watershed initiatives across Oyun Local Government.

Let me pay homage to our father, His Royal Highness, the Elerin of Erin-Ile, Oba Ibrahim Ajibola Olusookun, Baba; may you reign with more good health and additional unprecedented development in the land of Oyun.


For many of us, whenever we hear the name, Ifelodun Local Government, what readily comes to mind is that, this perhaps the biggest local government area in Nigeria and by extension Africa! This is actually not far from the truth at all.

As a way of proving that am a typical Yoruba man, ( no matter my sojourn within and outside the shores of this country) I respectfully pay homage to their Royal Highnesses, the Elese of Igbaja, Oba Ahmed Babalola Awuni Arepo, the Olupako of Share, Oba Haruna Suleiman Adegbite and all traditional rulers. I say may your reigns continue to thrive.

I want to maintain my earlier observation that this discourse is strictly issue based, because the personality we are looking at has promised himself never to blackmail anyone……not even political opponents for that matter.

Going by the above, it would be uncultured to throw away the child with bath water that there are NOTHING on ground through the efforts of those who had occupied the position of Federal Legislatures, especially Ifelodun, Offa and Oyun Federal Constituency over the years.

The fundamental issue here is that we are not where we ought to be, this is just the truth and nothing but the truth!

One man who is ready to make the difference is Gbenga Oyekunle-Power, and as the clock is ticking, I appeal to the wonderful electorate of Ifelodun/Offa/Oyun Federal Constituency to consider giving their son the opportunity to make a difference.

Politicians are just unpredictable and humorous, i strongly believe that one of the things that the 2023 general elections will witness is that it will not be business as usual, especially when it comes to voting for “popular political parties “.

We will dissect some of the analysis of our politicians who have not come in terms with the reality that this election that is just few days away is not going to be about political parties but PERSONALITY……

I will be back soon
