Ex Deputy governor return to PDP in Ondo state
He described the projects carried out by Ibidapo as amazing and urged other well meaning Nigerians to emulate him to better the society.
The Deputy Governor to former Governor Olusegun Mimiko in second term said Ibidapo has done a lot to his community and the state in general and he needs to be praised for this.”
The former deputy governor noted that the humanitarian projects carried out by the awardee cuts across the state.
Ibidapo who is the Managing Director of Mydass has been awarded as the outstanding man of the year for empowering physically challenged persons and other humanitarian gestures to the down trodden,
The award was given by the South West Excellence Awards Group.
The Convener of the group, Hope Olawale said that the humanitarian projects constructed by Ibidapo included the “buildings to hospital, Schools as well as churches and empowerment of the physically challenged people and other individuals in the state and even beyond.
Olawale who spoke at the international conference centre of the Obafemi Awolowo University, venue of the awards, said Ibidapo “was carefully chosen for the award among those nominated following his philanthropic gestures to the people especially the poor in Ondo State.
According to him “What we normally do at the south west excellence awards is to nominate people we believed a worthy to be celebrated through their chosen profession or those who donate heavily to charity among others.”
“After choosing them we take our time to do enough findings about who they are and to know if truly what they have done to the society was for real.”
“The group do all of these without notifying the awardees or nominees as the case maybe , so it is always difficult to influence them to give such awards”
The convener noted that the programme which started 8 years ago has recognised many Nigerians who have made impact to the society either through education, administration among other areas.
According to him they have excluded many nominees from getting awards in the past due to some questionable attitude hence the need for their findings before giving awards out.
“We took our time to move round and see the various projects embarked upon by prince Ibidapo according to what we were told before nominating him for the award and we found out that he has done a whole lot for his community and even other communities and he deserved to be honoured”.
Olawale expressed the hope that the award will encourage him to do more to continually support humanity at all times.
Political prostitution will never help our Nation, the should stop jumping from one party to the other when the system dis not favour them. Honourables without honour.
