With glory and thanks to God almighty, Mr. Lateef Amolegbe turns 70.
For many close to him, the day is indeed special because of too many close calls. The man literally and figuratively works himself into the ground day in and day out. He his very tireless in his pursuit of all things that have to do with community development.
Most mortals have 24 hours a day, but God, in His infinite wisdom, has granted Mr. Amolegbe 30 hours in a day as the Sun literally stands for him every day. Otherwise, how does one explain the amount of activity he generates daily and the impactful results he achieves every day. Mr. Amolegbe is a rare breed, but the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
As the Aremo of Late Alhaji Yusuf Amolegbe aka Oredola Okeya dynasty, he has been living the ethos passed onto him and to many Igbomina sons and daughters, idagba soke ilu – Community Development 24/7 is imprinted into his genes.
He is the typical small body, big engine man. His physical stature in comparison to the tales of his exploits along the length and breadth of Kwara State doesn’t do him justice. He should have stood at 8 feet tall. But size is not everything.
Today, we, your friends at Kwara Development Group, USA, salute you and rejoice with you today and forever more. We commemorate with friends and family worldwide as you celebrate this important milestone, and we are glad to be a part of your incredible life journey.
