The likes of Hon. Olusola Ajisola a.k.a. Kudos and Hon. Omoniyi Owolabi were seen supervising and coordinating the kitchen otherwise known as Adiro in the local parlance while Hon.

The day was full of funfair and excitement. Interestingly, Hon. Olusola Ajisola prepared the soup to the delights of everyone on ground and the soup was regarded as one of the best soup any chef could have made.
The youths in their large numbers were on ground for this exceptional feast. It should be noted that every ingredients/condiments used for the feast were freshly sourced from the farm.
The bonding among the people was evidently seen when participants were seen eating from the same mortal. There was no separation among the people.
Really, politics is local even though the occasion was not meant for such but time was taken out to admonish the people on the need to stay focus, stand with APC and the leaders who has been around for them over the years.
