Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde , on Saturday evening, paid a visit to the Molete, Ibadan home of one of his predecessors, Dr. Victor Omololu Olunloyo, where he presented him with a Lexus jeep.
According to a statement by the chief press secretary to the governor, Taiwo Adisa, Makinde, who was accompanied by a number of government officials, held a closed-door meeting with the octogenarian former governor.
Makinde gave the aged Olunloyo a pleasant surprise when he pointed at a parked army green car, saying: “Your Excellency, let me present you with this gift.”
An excited Olunloyo, however, asked one of his aides to pray for the governor and the success of his administration.
Olunloyo later took the governor and his entourage on a tour of his newly renovated residence.
In his brief remark, Olunloyo praised Makinde for what he called his good works, praying that the governor will continue to record successes.
“You have done well by giving befitting burials to departed monarchs, including the Soun of Ogbomoso and the Olubadan of Ibadanland.
“I thank you for all the projects you are doing. You are doing very well,” Olunloyo said.
Olunloyo, 86, was governor of Oyo State between October 1983 and December 1983.
