A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ibadan, Hon. Olayinka Segelu, has felicitated with the Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory, Oloye Jumoke Akinjide on the Merit Award
conferred on her by the Olubadan of Ibadanland and the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII), at the grand finale of this year's edition of the Annual Ibadan Week Festival.

The PDP stalwart said the award was a clear testimony to the level of recognition and appreciation of the outstanding contributions of the erudite lawyer to the socio-economic development of Ibadanland, thus marking her out as a committed welfarist and unrelenting defender of the cause of the people of Ibadan and Oyo State in general.

In a congratulatory message made available to newsmen, Segelu, a grassroots politician, paid glowing tributes to the Minister, describing her as a source of inspiration for younger politicians and a leader worthy of emulation by anybody seeking to occupy position of responsibility in the society.

The scion of the late federal lawmaker, Hon. Olusegun Oladimeji Segelu, who was a personal assistant in the office of the former Speaker of House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Dimeji Bankole and

presently a senior aide to Sen. Nurudeen Abatemi-Usman, thanked the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba (Dr) Samuel Odulana Odugade I and the CCII for honouring Oloye Jumoke Akinjide with the merit award.

He promised that the PDP of which the minister is a leader will continue to work

for the advancement and progress of Ibadanland. Akinjide was honoured along with seven others. They include: Senator Olufemi Lanlehin, Chief Kareem Olatunji, Dr. Sunday Makinde, former

prelate of Methodist Church, Alhaji Suleiman Oladapo, Dr. Azeez Balogun, Prof. Isaac Adeyemo and Mr. Adebisi Sanda.
