July 31, 2014 – Adesoji: Governor Aregbesola’s Life History Movie Premieres Today In Ilesa Osun state
An inspirational Yoruba movie titled Adesoji, a film that captures the life of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola, Executive Governor of the State of Osun premiered today, Thursday, July 31, 2014 in Ilesa, Osun State.
Celebrities who starred in the movie were Bukky Wright, Ade Adenrele, Lere Paimo, Kareem Adepoji, Adewale Elesho and many others.
Viewers were amazed with untold stories about his birth, his revolt against cheating while he was a primary school pupil, his life as a bachelor, meeting his wife and many more.
Akin Olu-Philips, the director of the movie said ” this motion picture is an attempt to share with the general public a compacted presentation of some of the life’s experiences that formed the person of Ogbeni. I believe it will guide the public to have a better understanding of his person and be inspired thereby.”
According to the Executive Producer, Mr. Razaaque Animashaun it is intended as a motivating material as it highlights Ogbeni’s struggle to claim back his mandate for 3 and half years, his successes and achievement in the last 3 years in the State of Osun and most importantly to show that our country can actually produce such a visionary leader.”
Whilst he was a Commissioner of Works in his base at the Centre of Excellence, the spirits of his people at home continually cries for his attention and salvation like their forefathers sought from the great Oranmiyan of his genealogy. He initially tried to avoid this great challenge but the Oranmiyan in him became restless. Thus, he honoured the call of destiny in order to save his kinsmen.
It took him three years and some months to claim back the masses’ mandate given to him against all threats.
“Vision is the product of purpose, it is the source of true leadership”
