As Wayne W. Dyer asserts “When you are able to shift your inner awareness to how you can serve others, and when you make this the central focus of your life, you will then be in a position to know true miracles in your progress toward prosperity”, it  aptly defines the altruistic nature  of  Oloye Bayo Adelabu who sees prosperity as a measure of what you give and not what you have.

Thus, knowing him, one will be convinced that he is not difficult to approach  and coast along with  owing to his politeness and friendly attitude. He is what some describe as ‘down-to-earth’ and not a snooty individual despite been in the classical-echelon of the society. His willingness to communicate to all goes beyond being political as he gives regard not to how stuffed-shirts one is, nor the make of one’s designer’s outfit. He treats both the low and the mighty as equal.

Like Abraham Lincoln whose road to success was longer, tortuous and less likely,  this upwardly mobile  financial  expert  is  an inspiration to many and motivating symbol to all. His foray into politics is not only borne out of a quest to make history,  which by the grace of God he has made through his professional callings but mainly to be part of history who by Jove make marked impact on the society that produce them .  Little wonder why he has ignored whatever it takes to put smile to the faces  of needy and change the silent melancholy of the bitter music of the  indigent indigenes of his and our dear Oyo State to a loud  song of praise.    He  understands how  the shoe do pinches, and does need to do any Voodoo  to ease the  painful tense.
