The wealth we have or the positions we hold remain mere instruments that are inactive if lives are not impacted positively by them.
The attitude of doing good or lending helping hands to the less privileged also obviously does not have anything to do with the level of influence, affluence, or capacity; no wonder people go out of their way to put smiles on the faces of the needy.
Among these very few people is a revered orator, educationist, grassroots politician, father figure, and above all, philanthropist, Dr. Fola Akinosun.
Dr. Fola Akinosun, an Ibadan indigene born to korukoru compound, Yemetu Ibadan, the agbaakin of Irokoland and the founder, of Foreign Links Campus, Moro, Osun state can best be described as an angel in human form, especially to thousands of people who have benefitted from his kind heart and philanthropic gesture.
Parents of over fifteen thousand students across Oyo State, and thousands of young people across the southwest states cannot forget in a hurry the uncommon contributions of the living legend in reshaping the lives of their children and wards through the scholarship scheme of the Fola Akinosun Foundation.
A testimonial of a woman who went on a popular radio station in Ibadan, (Fresh FM), to narrate how a man (Fola Akinosun) whom she never met in her life helped her with cash gifts, clothes, and food when she was homeless, cannot also be forgotten among other assistance Dr. Akinosun had rendered by the help of God
Even though Dr. Fola Akinosun is passionate about building capacity and investing in the lives of the youth through academic platforms, he has at one point fully renovated Araromi Motor spare part central mosque that was gutted by fire in April 2022.
Young Fola Akinosun did not have it so easy while growing up; with hard work, consistency, and resilience he struggled to rise and make it, even as an apprentice after he lost his father at a very tender age, no wonder he places a premium on helping humanity, not minding the fact that he has never held any political office.
No doubt, there are many untold stories about Dr. Fola Akinosun because he has raised many to become independent.
Fola Akinosun, born on the 1st of October, many years ago, is a core family man, generous, intelligent, hardworking, accessible, visionary, understanding, and means well to the people.
Newarena.ng and the entire team wish Dr. Fola Akinosun Happy Birthday with best wishes.
