โ€œBabaโ€™s last most crucial political assignment on earth was marked with monumental electoral victories as he delivered House of Assembly seats, House of Representatives seats and Oyo Central Senatorial seat to APC. He hosted peaceful, fruitful and rancor-free APC meetings.

โ€œHe was an exemplary leader, considering his boldness, oratory prowess, bluntness, integrity and dexterity. I will miss Baba. He was quite steadfast and dogged in defence of good governance and his death has robbed the progressive family of one of its eloquent defenders.โ€

Folarin commiserated with the family, Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, Dr Sokan Ojebode, founder of Atiba University, and others.

He prayed that Ojebodeโ€™s soul finds solace in the bosom of God.
