Leadership has nothing to do with age, stature or position; but it is all about the ability of a man to inspire and lead others successfully.
Since the inception of this year 2018’s expiring tenure of Gov. Peter Ayodele Fayose in Ekiti State, I have not for once come out with a piece in my name to applaud the generosity of this young man who is unarguably one of the best three cabinet members in this administration.
My latest experience at the newly commissioned restaurant at Osekita Bus Stop, Iworoko-Ekiti is the reason behind this piece.
On Thursday, 29th March, 2018, I was coming from Ipoti-Ekiti with my personal person cum leader; Ojo Ayegbusi (Ayee) who drove his Toyota Camry. On getting to the bus stop, I saw people hailing one man. As usual, I was inquisitive to know what was going on there from afar and I asked my man whether he knew what was going on there but he replied like a typical Nigerian who will answer a question with another question.
We moved closer and I told him to park so as to have knowledge of what was happening. He parked and I saw a handsome looking man, Sunday Anifowoshe, the Personal Assistant to Gov. Ayodele Fayose on General Administration and Stomach Infrastructure in the midst of the people, smiling and exchanging pleasantries with virtually everyone.
Looking up, I saw “African Kitchen” written boldly in front of where we parked our vehicle and I quickly remembered the then African Chicken at Fajuyi Park, Ado-Ekiti. The place we used to eat plenty of food with token amount.
We entered the place, saw people wining and dining. We were offered seats, food and drinks by Sunshine himself. I sat beside him and that gave me the opportunity to let him know that we were already okay right from where we were coming from.
The Disc Jockey (DJ) was busy blasting with latest songs while some guys were displaying their talents. What a beautiful day!
We were there for 1h:36 minutes and I was not only happy but overjoyed with the kind of pleasant comments that people were making about the business oriented man who is the owner of the new restaurant.
The man known as Sunshine is also the owner of one of the most popular bakeries and bread brands in Ado-Ekiti. Anybody who passes through Ekiti State University will know how popular Sunshine Bread is.
Before the government, Sunshine was a millionaire and despite his position as a Personal Assistant to the governor, he runs his personal businesses and he is judiciously making use of his office to win more members for his political party, the PDP.
His ability to manage people around him is another sterling quality that makes him to be loved by many people.
His human relations is equal to none, very respectful, humble and kind. Like my friend, Bola Agboola used to say , Sunshine is the real ‘Atayese’ of Osoko Kingdom, may God continue to bless him.
