TSBT award seeks to celebrate and honour individuals that has done commendably well in public office, earning the public trust. It is worth noting that Alh. Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola CON, will be the second personality that TSBT will be awarded to in the whole world by World Institute for Peace since it’s establishment in 2013.
Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola was not selected just because of who is he, but also because of the feathers in his cap. His achievements cannot be briefly summarized however, here are some of his quota to the development of the world while he was serving as the executive governor of his state in Nigeria.
Oyetola, within his one term in office as the executive governor of Osun State, performed well despite the meager resources in the state, based on our thorough researches. Oyetola brought Osun to the limelight through security enhancement, sustainable peace and human development.
During his reign as the number 1 citizen of Osun State, the nominee prioritized the welfare of civil servants and pensioners by prompt payment of salaries despite the paucity of funds in the state and it is quite convincing that he managed the resources of the state in a manner he is an example of good leaders that the world needs.
He improved the health indices of the state by reinvigorating every primary Healthcare centres in each of the wards in Osun State. This alone is a pointer to confirm his nomination.
However, the honour shall be confered on him in the month of July, 2023 in the heart of Nigeria (Abuja) as a book titled “Suggested Solutions To Banditry” shall be launched in his name during the international event that will host ambassadors of our Organization across the world.
On behalf of the entire Board of Directors of our Institute, we congratulate His Excellency, Alh. Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola, the winner.
