Describing the Ila-Orangun born politician, said Chief Akande is a man of honour and integrity, adding that million of youths have tapped from his political wealth of experience.

The statement read, “We members of the Asiwaju Grassroots Foundation wish to express our gratitude to God Almighty for sparing the live of our Baba. Baba’s political sagacity has helped in moving our noble party forward.”

“Youths and the entire nation will share in baba’s rare wisdom, insights and purposeful foresight as always demonstrated in his interventions and counselling on national issues.”

“This high principled leader, Bisi Akande, stood and still stands as a father figure and mentor to many younger politicians across the country particularly in the South-West; because of his traits as an exemplary leader and mentor, many call him Baba awon omo ke ke ke, meaning the political father of the younger ones who come after him.

“AGF affirms that Chief Akande’s contributions to the founding and nurturing of historical political institutions, like Unity Party of Nigeria, Alliance for Democracy, Action Congress of Nigeria, and the governing party, APC, were major steps and sacrifices in ensuring a sustainable democracy for Nigeria that generations will recall and remain grateful for.

“He is a man of honour and integrity. In private and public life, he has led by example; highly incorruptible, bold, brave and courageous; self-disciplined, loyal to the progressive cause and shunning avarice and tendency towards primitive accumulation, which has become the hallmark of political life.

“The group prays that the almighty God will continue to sustain Chief Akande in good health, strength and wisdom to serve his community, state and country.
