Oyo state Deputy Governor, Engineer Rauf Olaniyan has described the late Oyo state governor as a benefactor who he immensely benefitted from.
Engineer Olaniyan said this during the inter-faith prayer held in Ogbomosho at the Opadoyin Akala residence of the late Governor on Friday.
The Oyo number two man said he is proud to boldly say he was a beneficiary of the large heartedness and kindness the Ogbomosho born ex governor exuded.
Olaniyan asserted that his heart was so large that anyone who came into his house with a cry will leave with happiness and rejoicing.
He said the late governor embodied the commandment of God and was greatly used by God to answer the prayers of majority of those that came across him.
Engineer Olaniyan said Akala was an accomplished leader who has run his race, and has won in life.
He therefore posed the question of how will you end your race, urging everyone to live right and godly while impacting the lives of people around them.
