Elite Should Emulate Late Olatoye Sugar-Prof. Olagoke

The elite in Nigeria have been called upon to emulate the philanthropic gesture of the late Hon. Temitope Olatoye Sugar top cushion the negative effects of poor governance in the country.

This call was made  on Monday by the  Founder, Spiritual Head and Grand Imam of Shafudeen-in-Islam Worldwide, Prof. Sabitu Olagoke at the one year remembrance lecture in honor  of the late lawmaker in Ibadan, Nigeria.

''The concept of philanthropy  which Hon. Dr. Olatoye Temitope Sugar stood for is an antidote to poor governance and  bad leadership which has  been responsible  for poverty and hunger, hoodlum in agitation on survival moves hence the need to promote  by the people in government, credible leadership for good governance and the culture of altruism for the elites to follow the philanthropic legacy left behind by Hon. Olatoye Sugar for the land to be fertile, disciplined and safe for the masses for our Democracy to yield prosperity for all''.

''It is on record that usually when there is going to  change of government  even through electoral process, there is always records of bloodshed due to various manipulations that undermines the need for merit in the conduct of the election to enthrone leaders into offices of service in governance. Prof. Wole Soyinka tagged it as an offer to the highest bidder. When Nigeria lost such a gem, that touches the lives of the masses, charting the right cause  to establish a legacy of sustainable development through philanthropic moves, the vacuum created cannot be quantified ! Who will fill the gap now and when are we going to  have another, even in the next generation ? A thousand dollar question indeed'', Prof. Olagoke stated.
