The Group Chairman, Mutual Benefits Assurance and chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Dr Akin Ogunbiyi, has felicitated with His Imperial Majesty, Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on his 45th birthday.
In a message issued on Thursday, Ogunbiyi described the highly-revered monarch, who is celebrating his fourth birthday on the throne as Ooni of Ife, as a rare gem and notable advocate of peace and sustainable development.
He affirmed as true, one of the monarch’s philosophies that “there is no substitute for peace” and joins other educationists in extolling the Ooni’s giant strides in education especially his recent and milestone scholarships to 246 students through his advocacy platform, the Hopes Alive Initiative (HAI), in partnership with Air Peace Airlines.
Ogunbiyi expressed gratitude to Almighty God for His grace upon the reverred monarch and the Yoruba race under his treasured watch and leadership.
He commended Oba Ogunwusi for his matchless empathy for others and for inspiring and supporting peace, development and whatever favours humanity.
He prayed that the monarch’s reign will be long in good health and continue to be characterised by milestone achievements.
