Adedamola hinted that Abiodun emerged at a time when the citizens salivated for the dividend of democracy and clamoured for justice.

Adedamola stressed that IPAC was not only applauding the dexterity and quality leadership skills of the governor but also congratulating the citizens for having a rare gem, sailing the state down the ocean for a destination of change they yearned for.


According to him "IPAC is not only applauding your dexterity and quality leadership skills but also re-congratulating the people of Ogun for having a rare gem like you, sailing the state down the ocean for a destination of change they yearn for and your immeasurable and innumerable achievements within the space of 12 months."

His statements reads "Amidst life intricacy for the dear people of Ogun state, when they salivated for the dividend of democracy and clamoured for a Messianic government that would bring about regeneration in the state, there emerged from the sea of the East, a people-oriented and iconic figure sent by the omnipotent deity to give succor to the people." 


The statement added "IPAC congratulates you on this landmark birthday and commend the leadership qualities you exhibited as the Executive Governor of Ogun State and so far the number one citizen."
