The impact of the Ogun State Chairman of Riders And Owners Organisation (ROMO), Alhaji Abdul Rasaq Olusola Sotayo popularly called Sholebo to the success of All progressives congress (APC) can’t be overemphasized.
He is a philanthropist per excellence who contributed immensely to the success recorded by All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun West and Ado-Odo/Ota Federal Constituency towards the re-election of the state Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun and his deputy Engr Noimot Salako-Oyedele, Senator-Elect, Senator Olamilekan Adeola (YAYI).
House of Representatives member-elect, Engr Tunji Akinosi and the two-state house of Assembly Members Elect who are going for a second term in office, Hon. Yusuf Abiodun (IBEMA), Hon. Musefiu Olatunji Lamidi (MUSE) of Ado-Odo/Ota State Constituencies 1 and 2 respectively.
Like a Midas touch, he brought his leadership qualities to bear in managing the affairs of ROMO in the State without any rancour or acrimony.
Apart from sponsoring several road rehabilitation projects within Ado-Odo/Ota LGA and donations of substantial amounts of money to different Area Community Development Council (ACDC), Sholebo stands tall among his peers in the act of generosity.
He believes strongly in the need for the involvement of corporate bodies and philanthropists to partner with the government to drive home the true essence of governance at all levels.
Beyond that, Alhaji Shotayo is a different breed. He doesn’t discriminate or segregate. Sholebo sees everyone irrespective of their social status, background and belief as equal.
Every now and then, he has always expressed his passion for the development of Ogun State. The ROMO boss shares in the policy thrust of Governor Abiodun’s administration and has mobilized support for its success at any given opportunity.
It is however no doubt that his personality, generosity and philanthropic gestures factored into the success that APC recorded in the just-concluded elections
