PROLIFIC SUNDAY PEOPLE:Adebisi Omoyeni, From Murkey Waters Of Banking to Political Battle Field


 In the next couple of months, the name, Adebisi Omoyeni may be the name to beat in the murky world of politics. He cuts across as a man wearing a coat of many colors. An astute banker – almost all his life. He has never hidden his love and passion for big league politics. Neither has he ever hidden his love and admiration for the great American icon, George Washington.
 And anytime Washington’s name is mention, one of his greatest ever thought provoking iconic quote always come to mind: ‘’Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than bad company’’
 He has He cuts an image of a very cool, calm and calculated figure, who is not giving to too many words. Yet that calmness depleting that which the recently buried global brand name, Dr Nelson Mandela is obvious, but does not mean weakness. He combines such calm state with the charisma of J F Kennedy

For starters, our subject matter of today, Adebisi  Omoyeni is the man who has spent the better part of his life in the banking hall and murky boardroom horse-trading, where for nearly a decade he was the  Executive Director and later Group Managing Director, WEMA Bank. Not so long ago, he signified his ambition to play big time politics by seeking to be voted in as not only the People’s Democratic Party( PDP) Candidate, but also the man to beat in the July 2014 Ekiti Governorship race
And Only last Sunday, one of CERUTTI MEDIA blog site, WORLD INDUSTRY LEADERS, caught up with him when he came with his entourage as V.I.P guest at the official opening on the eye-popping and imposing Home inspiration flagship showroom opening in 15 Idowu Martins Street, Victoria island, Lagos, we caught up with him few days after for an exclusive chat on his mission in politics and what hope is there for his people. EXCERPT
·         ON HIS PRIMARY MISSION IN POLITICS
‘’I by the grace of God have achieved all I set out to achieve in life, but I realized of late that I still have a burden eating deep in my heart, and that is to better  the plight of my people In Ekiti. Here is a land and people blessed with abundant natural recourses but still suffering in midst of plenty
‘’I know in my heart that the average Ekiti person want s to live decently, comfortably, and wants to enjoy all the socio economic generational rights by receiving all adequate reward for their efforts, but what they have today is far from what they want, my entering into the race is to build a bridge between our people and their getting what is their birthright, that is what my manifesto stand for and that is what the people will get’’
·         ON HIS LAMENTATION THAT THE AVERAGE EKITI MORTAL IS SUFFERING IN MIDST OF PLENTY

‘’Yes I stand by my word. The late MKO Abiola once said that poverty is worse than AIDS and I agree with him. Now looking at our people, I have done my research and have realized that our people are today suffering from what is worst as AIDS and that is the fact that they are suffering acquired poverty disease. They are suffering in silence; suffering deep in midst of plenty. This is most pathetic and unacceptable because God has endowed us with a list of human and natural resources which if harnessed can possibly provide us with the wherewithal to get rid of poverty in our state. Infrastructure and basic amenities like pipe bone water, good and basic roads network, electricity etc are sadly highly in short supply
·         ANYWHERE YOU GO YOU TALK ON YOUTHS, YOUTHS YOUTHS, WHY PASSION FOR YOUTH
‘’Youths are the bedrock of the future; the country belongs to today’s youths. AND I SAY it without fear or favor, any government that does not pay special attention to and develop its youths is wasting its time and the precious time of government. All right thinking person’s should be naturally touched by the level of high rate of unemployment in Ekiti state of Nigeria…most pathetic to say the list, it is part of my motivation to step forward politically and use my vast experience in banking world to develop a programme of action that would create job opportunities for all youths and unemployed graduates to have hope for better life ahead, my agenda I can tell you will create 4,000 job opportunities annually during my tenure
·         ON  WHY HE FEELS HE IS PDP’S BEST BET FOR THE TICKET

‘’To unseat an incumbent governor all over the world is not easy, but yet very possible with the birth of the one man-on e-vote. No one can stop the will of the people, our people need change and the change must come now. There is an old English saying by Josh Billings....’’ The wheel that squeaks the loudest is the one that gets the grease’’
‘’ For our great party to unseat the incumbent, we needs man with mass experience in boardroom world, Ekiti needs a strong and respectable candidate who has accomplished all he set to achieve in the corporate world, professionally and with wide private sector experience, a candidate with hunger to deliver; a candidate willing to bring Ekiti to world state with his vast global connection armed with rapid socio-economic development in mind, all these are qualities written  in gold in my résumé, we will only sail if we choose the best man to slug it out with the incumbency, the man to deliver Ekiti is here with you now’’
*No doubt it is near seven months to the Ekiti Election, but the stage seems set for another mother of all elections. Will PDP unseat the hurricane APC in Ekiti? Only time will tell
