“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” , This sums up the drive of UPN Gubernitorial Candidate, Otunba ROTIMI Paseda.
He is a man who takes every chance and opportunity to make sure he stands by his people, the people of Ogun, anytime, anywhere.
Just as his name implies ‘ROTIMI’, in Yoruba, this means an individual standing by another during the times of trouble, causing comfort to the discomfort, calming the ranging storm
A lot of things have been done through him that even the Governor Of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun can’t achieve, he is someone regarded as selfless in all his doings, countless number of people have benefited in one way or the other from this great personality.
One of his many Philanthropic work is bailing out the victims of the Collapsed Building, which was already commissioned by the Ogun state Governor, Ibikunle Amosun months before it collapsed. When this ugly incident happened, The only move the governor made was to visit the scene of the incident, promised to take care of the victims’ family and left, nothing was heard from him after then until this Good Samaritan, Otunba Rotimi Paseda, out of compassion, took it upon himself to make sure the people of Ogun state doesn’t suffer buy giving the cash and material things, This people no doubt can never forget this in their lifetime.
It is a rare thing for an individual to do, after losing out on the 2015 Gubernatorial election, due to the ‘Magic hands’ of the APC, yet nothing still stopped him from helping the people of Ogun state.
Furthermore, Otunba ROTIMI Paseda can never be forgotten by the over 400 youths who graduated from the Ultimate Achievers Youth Initiative (UAYI), which is a skill acquisition academy of the Paseda Legacy Foundation. They were trained in different skills and also gave them a sum of N2Million to run their businesses, without holding a political post, all this were run from his personal pocket.
Otunba ROTIMI Paseda is a man whose passion for the youth is unique, so many youths have also being helped by his Paseda Legacy foundation, which of course isn’t for a political reason..
This is one of the reasons why he steals the show at every event he attends even if those who claim to be in power attend, they all end up being ashamed
Ogun state People need Leaders who can sacrifice anything, we need leaders who can feel our pain, leaders who can hear our cry, leaders who know the right thing to do, leaders who can stand by the people, We need ROTIMI, We Need Otunba ROTIMI Paseda.
