WHOM THE CAP FITS………As WASU Honours Jide Jimoh.

Sterling performance is like the proverbial light, you cannot hide it. Put it under the bed, it would glimmer. Leave it unhidden, it would glitter. Like a thousand stars, a performer in the person of Hon. Jide Jimoh, Executive Chairman, Yaba LCDA shone brilliantly. More heart-warming was the fact that his achievements were noticed and recognised beyond the shores of Nigeria as accolades came all the way from Ghana.

Students are not known for vain-glorious praise-singing, given their aluta nature. So, whenever they applaud, it must be genuine applaud. Date was Monday, June 18 and the venue was secretariat of Yaba Local Council Development Area. The beauty of it all was that there was no contact between the officials of West African Students Union (WASU) and the officials of the Council. All great strides of Hon Jide Jimoh were followed closely through the website and WASU resolved that this is a man that deserves to be honoured.

Making the presentation of the Kwame Nkrumah award, the president of WASU commended Jide Jimoh for his exemplary strides. His words:

It is Hon AbdulRaheem Olajide, for this award is a testimony of the dedication of a true West African son to the development of our continent. An erudite politician with as outstanding dedication to the promotion of independent economy development and an astute defender of the right of all West Africa Origins.

We hereby state that our decision to confer this honour s not just the celebration of the achievement of an outstanding performer but also should be considered as a clarion call on the awardees not to relent in his effort towards redefining the standard of economy development in Africa. This award should also serve as awake up call on others to realise that there is a critical observation of their efforts and every deeds; either good or bad has a result.

We sincerely congratulate our distinguished awardee and thank all those who have contributed immensely to making this occasion possible and memorable.

Responding, the Executive chairman said he was humbled by the award. According to him, it would serve as a tonic, to galvanize him to work harder so as to serve the good people of Yaba LCDA better. Surely, whom the cap fits, let him wear it. The cap fits Jide Jimoh very well. The chairman was also inducted into the WASU Hall of fame.

At the official presentation were Diplomat Jackson Crystabel (Secretary General WASU), Diplomat Paulinus Kelvin (Leader of the delegate from Ghana), Azeez Camara (from University of Gambia), Comrade Nelson Ahmed (FUT Minna), Hon Jide Jimoh, Hon Bola Lawal Olumegbon, Alhaji Tunde Ojikutu, Leader of the council Bola John Linda and members of the Legislative Arm, Executive members, Management team and party supporters.
