    Ekiti State Governor, Mr.  Ayodele Fayose alongside his Chief of Staff, Barr. Dipo Anisulowo was on Saturday at Jogor Centre, Ibadan, venue of 100 years birthday bash held in celebration of Chief Adepoju Akomolafe...

    Chief Adepoju Akomolafe who clocked 100 years on 4th April 2017 is a member of the federal parliament representing Ondo Province during the First Republic.

    Chief Adepoju Akomolafe  is among the first people to be educated in Ekiti in the then Western Region, having obtained a B.A. London degree as a private candidate.

    Chief Akomolafe made history when he became the pioneer principal of Ekiti Parapo College, Ido-Ekiti, the second secondary school to be established in 1954 in Ekiti after Christ’s School, Ado-Ekiti. Ekiti Parapo College emerged from the joint efforts of Ekitis and in remembrance of Kiriji War the Ekitis fought with Ibadan.

    The centenarian was later elected into the federal parliament on the platform of then Action Group (AG), led by the late saga, Chief Obafemi Awolowo.

    Governor Fayose in his remarks at the ceremony described Chief Akoms as he's fondly called as an outstanding Nigerian worthy of emulation.  

    He wished him more years in good health, sound mind and all round happiness.
