Chief Ayo Adebanjo is no doubt one of the fathers of Nigeria. It’s like the elder stateman has been around forever. He has remained constant and consistent in his principles and belief all of this many decades, 9 decades to be more precise, having being born on April 10, 1928 in Ijebu, in fact Odogbolu LGA, in Ogun State to be more accurate.

Imagine that if any truly deserves to be called a nationalist, this great Nigerian deserves that accolade for just causes. He was born before the independence and he was there at the very beginning with the best of them, one of who was the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, the former premier of Western Region. So close was he to the great Nigerian leader and former premier that when Chief Awolowo was indicted then on treasonable felony charges, he was one of those accused with him and so was also arrested and detained. He had worked at Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s paper National Tribune before, under the late Chief Bisi Onabanjo, who later went on to become the Governor of Ogun State.

He later went to the UK for further studies and returned as a qualified lawyer and again worked for Chief Awolowo in his law chambers. It was from here that he was recruited as a member of the Action Group. When the crisis in the western region began and escalated, he was one of those affected and he was also in exile in Ghana with Chief Awolowo. Before they were recalled by the Gowon administration.

Chief Ayo Adebanjo was also one of the founding fathers of the UPN, formed by Chief Obafemi Awolowo and some of his associates then. He is a successful lawyer and one of the founding fathers of the Afenifere.

On the occasion of his 90th birthday celebrations it was like the bigwigs of Nigeria both in politics, Governance and otherwise poured in torrents to felicitate with him. Some of those in attendance included the likes of the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, 2 Governors-Osun’s Rauf Aregbesola, Oyo’s Abiola Ajimobi, Ogun’s Ibikunle Amosun, ex-Governors Aremo Olusegun Osoba, Otunba Gbenga Daniels, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, Niyi Adebayo and very many others like HRM, Oba Adedapo Tejuosho, Osile Oke Ona Egba, Karunwi III, Jimi Agbaje, Tunde Ayeni, Biodun Shobanjo, Chief Edwin Clark, Chief Alex Duduyemi, AIG (rtd) Tunji Alapini, Prince Tokunbo Sijuwade, Kola Abiola, Sam Amuka Pemu, Dame Abimbola Fashola, Alabi Tonye Graham Douglas, Odion Ajumogobia, SAN, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, Aare Ona Kakanfo, Chief Gani Adams, Sir Emeka Anyaoku, Kunle Bakare, Chief Mrs. Nike Akande, Olori Ladun Sijuwade, Pastor Tunde Bakare & wife, Muiz Banire, Chief Harry Akande, Chief Olu Falae, Senator Gbenga Ashafa, Oloruninbe Mamora, Alani Akinrinade and very many others.

There was first a church thanksgiving service and then thereafter a reception at Chief Adebanjo’s country home residence all in Ijebu.

  1. Yes he has. What a double standard for a man to be this fat and be ignored but attacked a woman that just had a baby. Tokunbo call Ayida for some personal training. Being fat is bad for the health and a silent death roaming

  2. Well brought up and humble. That is what happens with REAL MONEY PEOPLE. They always humble and no gra gra like other money Miss Road.The best rich guy in Nigeria and he has a good head on his shoulder.

    1. Is Kola still rich?
      Rich or not rich, I agree that he comes across as very grounded. The trials of life have left good lessons on him. Some go through mich worse and remain aloof

    2. He has bloody money but just like his late mother which she instilled in him and his siblings. He is in charge of his father oil block and other foreign investment and please don't forget that his mother was a such rich woman before she died too. Super rich and grounded. High respect for him

  3. Pastor my foot. So called Pastor Ituah that I called one day when I was going through some situation and was suicidal. I only needed counseling and prayers but his response unfortunately didn't portray a Pastor. Will leave it right there. He is a phony one

    1. His wife is a real HO and she is not as pleasant and nicer as the hungry Media and Bloggers portrayed her to be. She is also a fake vain ibe. Bird of the same feather l

  4. Real phony. Don't they all do anyway. Do what I preach but not what o do. They are all phony and fake Pastor of doom


  6. Re-He is in charge of his father oil block. I think the government took it back.

    I agree re-Nike Akande. Very nasty woman. I remember when she was the Minister of Industries under Abacha, she didn't do a day's job, took all the contracts for herself and cleaned out. Her husband on the other hand is quite a gentleman.

  7. @anon 1;16 I think you need to learn about the concept of delayed gratification.Society women/men of their age and exposure do not pay the going rate, you should even do it for her free in return for referrals.Let me shock you baba ijebu Kensington Adebutu multi billionaire does not pay many professionals who are on retainership a fee, salary go ask.You can be a lawyer for instance and handle 6 different transactions and he won't pay you ten kobo.BUT he can suddenly ring you up 2 weeks later and dash you $15,000.Dont show this attitude of yours in the midst of those people if you want to build a brand with these set of people as clients

    1. That's outright nonsense. No one should be providing professional services for free. There are no free lunches.

      Jeez! Nigeria is such a weird place.

    2. I don't know which low level society people you speak of. Without meaning to brag,i come from one of THE families,grew up around and still very much a part of it. My own parents and their friends and families,pay o.

      We need to bear in mind that some people are just piss takers,wealthy or not.

      Who sits around waiting for referrals before collecting their wage?

      Baba Ijebu as an inside joke,is just a stingy man.

      Then again so many of these people are just playing God and see themselves as doing you a favor especially in Nigeria.

      Like a member of the I family whose grandchild was caught stealing abroad big time,why didn't they behave in such a way as you speak to the lawyers who got the rotten brat off the hook?

      Finally,i know for a fact that a majority of awon society people are full of shit anyway.

  8. Kola Abiola finished Habib bank sold his soul to the devil for a mess of porridge.How can small useless Platinum bank buy Habib bank? It’s like Tastee fried chicken taking over KFC.Which of his fathers company is still functioning? Concord airline,Wonder bakers,Concord Newspaper,Abiola farms,Habib bank,RCN Abiola book shop? The guy is an omoale running after the daughter of the man who aided killing his father.The ugly thing is just lucky to be born rich heard he wS a dollard at Compro..I don’t have time now maybe later I will spill the beans on this shrek

    1. Welcome oooo, awon omo ale ile Abiola. We are not interested in your lies. We know you people. We love Kola. Jealousy things. Oloriburuku things.

    2. At Anon 5.50 Why are you so mad? Is it because he asked that anyone that presented he/she being Abiola kid should have a DNA? Maybe you are one of those kids they found out he/she was not Abiola kid. The guy is doing very well and remember that he has been dating Aisha forever before both their fathers issues. The guy has the whole world on his neck being in charge of his father's wealth and many his father's concubines went after him through JAZZ and legal litigations and if not for God's mercy, the guy would have been dead by now. Evil people of the world

    3. Are you minding this mumu. Someone that’s has like 3masters degree. Highly intelligent to discuss with. And very approachable unlike our fake ones. Ewu Gambia @ anon 5.50pm

  9. Kola is one of the most intelligent of his age mates. Ran his father’s campaign and has numerous degrees so definitely not dull. Humble, calm and focused.
