It would be recalled that Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele has vast knowledge in Executive workings of Government having been appointed by the then Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu of Lagos State as a Senior special assistant on political and intergovernmental relations to the Governor, then later as Commissioner for Youths and Sports before being appointed by Governor Babatunde Raji Fasola as Commissioner for Information and Strategy in the Lagos State Cabinet.
Raji, who himself was a foremost students’ leader during his university days at the University of Ibadan and a former NANS National Mobilization officer recalls with nostalgia the gallantry exhibited by Senator Opeyemi Bamidele then as the President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in the late eighties.
“It could be recalled the exceptional leadership skills, uncommon organizational capacity and unrivalled zeal, perseverance and fortitude which are the hallmarks of great leaders which the Present Senate Majority Leader put up as Numero uno of the Nigerian students’ Apex body, NANS. His dogged fight against military dictatorship and indelible successes recorded in many of these struggles are still there as reference points for those who want to learn the history of the Nation’s sojourn to the present democratic dispensation.”
While praying for a successful tenure for the new leadership of the National Assembly, Raji admonishes them to see themselves as partners in progress to the concerted efforts of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu led Executive.
