Hon. Adebisi in company of his friend and colleague from Egbeda state constituency, Hon. Olasunkanmi at the commissioning event stated that the whole essence of democracy is to attract physical development that adds real value to the people with whom the ultimate power resides. He made this statement yesterday while commissioning the six boreholes provided by the 1972/1977 set of old pupils association of Abiola Jacobs Basic School, Oke-Foko Ibadan.
It was reported that Taye Currency as an alumni of the same elementary school also passed through the institution some decades ago. The association therefore, deemed it worthy to request Hon. Adebisi to commission the modern boreholes as a show of honour to the Taye Currency family as worthy ambassadors representing Ibadan south west Local government in the music industry and Nigeria’s political landscape in Oyo state, Nigeria, Africa, and the world at large
