The Ekefa Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oloye ‘Lekan Alabi has asked youthful Nigerians to imitate the ethics of uprightness, modesty, industry and straightforwardness radiated by the late Ibadan-conceived industrialist, Chief Bode Akindele, in order to exceed expectations in their undertakings.
Talking with The Guardian in Ibadan, Alabi who said he had been near Akindele for a long time, depicted him as a puzzler, specialist, quiet giver and devout legislator who added to the improvement of Ibadan, Yoruba land, Nigeria, Africa and the world.
Akindele, the Parakoyi of Ibadanland, Baba Ijo, Methodist Church Nigeria, Agbeni, Ibadan and Chairman, MONDANDOLA GROUP, kicked the bucket on June 29 at 87 years old.
Alabi stated: “He was in excess of an Ibadan industrialist. He was a Nigerian and global man. He isn’t in the class of a regular representative. Boss Bode Akindele’s level is past commonplace agent. He was into land business. He was into account. What’s more, he isn’t restricted to Nigeria. He had plants in Africa, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. He had effects in enterprises he played in. He offered work in thousands. Akindele built up the economies where the organizations are found. … ”
However, he added magnanimity to his own. In the event that an individual could spread his hands to such limbs, and made an immense achievement, there is no reason for government or corporate bodies not to succeed.”
