The former Commissioner for Agriculture, Hon. Kehinde Oloruntoba has assured the people of Bunuland in Kabba/Bunu local government area of Kogi state that be it in office or out of office, he will always do only those things that will bring development to the kingdom.
He made this promise while receiving awards and acolades at the reception organised in his honour by the Bunu Committee of Friends in Iluke the headquarter of Bunuland recently.
While addressing the crowd at the reception, Hon. Oloruntoba confirmed that he has never been close to his home of origin until he was given appointment to serve under the Governor Yahaya Bello led government, this he said availed him the opportunity of coming close to his people and ever since then has fallen in love with his people who he described as dear to his heart.
“Life to me is about impacting and affecting lives positively, being a solution to people’s problem.
“What gives me joy mostly is not what I have aquired, be it material or what have you, but seeing people happy because of my little impact on them.
“I have grown to see the need to make myself meaningful to people’s life and I thank His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello for the privilege given to me to serve in his cabinet, through which I have been able to achieve my desire to positively affect the people around me,” he said.
The Chairman of the Organising committee, Hon. Durosinmi Meseko and his secretary, Otunba Kingsley Mokikan in a joint voice described Hon. Kehinde Oloruntoba as a pride of the Bunuland who has made the community proud because of his performance when he served in the various capacities he has served in the last four years.
They described him as a bundle of ideas and results oriented individual who when given an inch assignment, one can surely expect a mile result.They all prayed that God will grant him favour before himself and his principals to consider him worthy of another opportunity to serve.
