Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti state, says Reuben Fasoranti, a leader of Afenifere, pan-Yoruba socio-political group, left a lasting impression on him as his school principal.


In a letter the governor signed in commemoration of Fasoranti’s 94th birthday anniversary on Tuesday, Fayemi said Fasoranti was not just a dedicated teacher but a seasoned school administrator.

The governor described the Afenifere leader as a moral compass to the younger generation.

“Baba, your life has been an inspiration to many of us who had the rare privilege of passing through you,” he said.


”Yours is an epitome of hard work, simplicity, contentment, honesty and strong character. I recall with fond memory your lasting impressions on me as our school principal at Christ School, Ado-Ekiti.

”You were not just a dedicated teacher, a seasoned school administrator but a moral compass to all of us.

”One cannot but be proud of your record of impeccable service to the Old Ondo State as the Commissioner of Finance to the administration of Chief Adekunle Ajasin during which you were reputed for your probity, frugality and judicious use of public fund, which partly accounted for the historic successes of the administration.


”It is to be noted that, in and out of government and politics, one thing has continued to define your character; and that is, unimpeachable moral conviction.

”As Afenifere Leader, you have remained a respected voice, an ideological sage and an elder statesman. It is therefore my prayer that the good Lord continue to grant you good health and long life. I say again, happy birthday to my teacher!”
