Whoever will despise an elephant may posits that he sees it briefly, it is either one sees it or otherwise! In the case of Otunba Iyiola Ajani Omisore, born with silver spoons in his mouth, into the royal family of Oba David Olajide Omisore of Ayepe, Olode, Ile-Ife six decades ago, September 15th each year is symbolic. This is the precious day in history, that marks the cradle of an engineering guru, a sagacious politician, a philanthropist, a great achiever, a relentless helper of human destinies, a complete gentleman and a responsible family man, Otunba Iyiola Ajani Omisore. As fondly called, Chrishore is blessed with a mind of simplicity, wisdom and an uncommon discretion that softens the intricate task of administration and governance, though confronted invariably by many challenges, he has excelled brilliantly in the Upper Chamber of Nigeria's National Assembly as the Senator representing Osun East Senatorial District between 2003 and 2011. As a rare professional in his chosen field of endeavour, who has recently bagged DBA after his PhD in Infrastructure Finance from the International School of Management, Paris, France, Iyiola Omisore came out from the Senate with flying colours, even as the Chairman, Appropriation Committee of the House. Well known, highly connected and meticulously influential in many spheres of life, Omisore never looks down on anyone for anything and always fair enough in issues of adjudication between contending interests. One of the spectacular areas of his philanthropic tentacles is his unrelenting zeal and efforts targeted at building leaders for no selfish reasons. Many youths are yearly enrolled in Omisore's Scholarship award where thousands graduate year after year! There indeed is no doubt about the veracity of the fact that Otunba Iyiola Ajani Omisore is a wealthy man. The above statement becomes imperative as many, unlike Omisore, only gallivant about in vain, busy giving potential leaders fish only to sustain them for a while, Otunba Omisore will readily teach you how to fish, thereby turning many into sources of blessing for countless masses, especially both the active and the vulnerable ones. In Osun state and Nigeria, Iyiola Omisore is indisputably one of the very few personalities who have become rallying point of egalitarian society, economically, socially and politically. To describe this great man once and for all is obviously a herculean task because Otunba Iyiola Omisore is a man with many parts. However, he is extraordinarily blessed to have a large heart. He has a retentive memory but forgives easily, he has been made controversial but very straightforward, highly celebrated but approachable and hospitable, apparently dreadful especially toward injustice and exploitation but always attentive to meaningful arguments that can bring about a better or the best out of things. A leader who is above board, whose shoulders countless champions are raised! The indelible footprints you have inscribed on the sand of time is glittering in the book of history even as you continue to grow from strength to strength towards the fulfillment of your goal in life because the World is waiting. All in all, one thing is sure and certain, IF IT IS NOT OMISORE, IT CANNOT BE LIKE OMISORE! Happy birthday my amiable leader, enjoy your day sir! Signed: Rev.
