An online group based in the state of Osun, Progressives e-Group has felicitated with the State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Adelani Baderinwa as he celebrates his birthday.
The group described Adelani as a thorough-bred journalist, professional image maker, cool headed strategist and a complete gentleman.
“Mr. Adelani Baderinwa is a man we find ourselves in a dilemma on how to eulogize appropriately because he is a man of many parts, professional class and indelible marks. The cerebral Ikirun born senior journalist is not only an administrator per excellence but also a practical model of omoluabi ethos which the state of Osun is building into sociological system and structure of her citizenry.
“The former Senior Special Assistant to Governor Rauf Aregbesola on Media is no doubt the best Information Commissioner Osun has ever produced both in experience and engagements. With less than a year in office, he has effectively and efficiently projected Osun to the world using our strength to outshine our challenges and our successes to silence our detractors.
“The former Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to Chief Adebisi Akande between 1999-2003 in all measurements is a personality we can happily labelled as our boss, adviser, benefactor and all time associate due to his deep passion and numerous support towards growth and advancement of our group. As the popular saying goes. A son is the secret of his father. We are not too surprised that all the good attributes of Baba Bisi Akande is not only radiating in you but also flowing to numerous others who are fortunate to work under you.”
The group thereby wished the Commissioner long life, sound health and endless prosperity to the service of his hometown – Ikirun, Osun, Nigeria and humanity in general.
