For the Ikolaba Olubadan of Ibadanland, Chief Lekan Alabi, it is time to roll out the drums as he turns 60. He has every reasons to make the birthday loud. Besides the razmatazz of the various offices he has held in the past, serving as Press Secretary to four different Governors of Oyo State, now sitting among the high chiefs in Ibadanland especially those who decides the where the pendulum swings, he has come through thick and thin, now establishing himself even among the famous politicians in the state as an aristocract. Alabi who is from the linage of great Ibadan warriors and great chiefs like Ekerin Suberu Ajengbe and Oyetunji Olundegun last Wednesday, October 27, turned 60. We gathered that the highpoint of the celebration this weekend was the launching of his biography titled Destiny, otherwise known as ‘Ayanmo’
As a famous leader in Ibadanland, politicians, businessmen and technocrats will troop in to Ibadan this weekend for the celebration. Congratulations.
