Benedict Alabi, A Phenomenon @ 55 – OsunInFocus







It all started quietly in line with divine arrangement of procreation, without the knowledge of no one except two adorable amazon and legend of note, Mama Eunice Atoke and Pa John Oyeyemi Alabi, both of blessed memory.

Consequently, the bell rang in the early hours of July 12, 1965, at the Catholic Hospital, Oluyoro, Oke-Ola, in the agrarian community of Ikire, the present headquarters of Irewole Local Government.

The tintinnabulation of the bell therefore announced the arrival of a special gift to humanity, it intimated the world the coming of a game changer , it eloquently broke the news of the birth of a distinct being, Benedict Olugboyega Alabi.










From an organised family setting, strongly rooted in the Catholic faith, Alabi started a journey of life with alacrity to fulfil his earthly obligation of being a blessing to humanity as his name, 'Benedict' suggests.

In the same way Jack Welch puts it that:" Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others", Alabi relentlessly followed the path of hard-work and dignity, rising to his apogee in banking and private business, and eventually became a leader of sort.

To the chagrin of many, he stormed the political enclave as a collossus, and changed narratives in many quarters without noise, with undaunted mindset to grow multitudes.

Curiously, his political expendition has revealed many hidden talents in him, which continue to amaze many pundits and gladiators, within and outside the state of Osun.

A man of immense intelligence, thorough calmess, with unflinching loyalty embedded in clarity of purpose.

According to the indelible words of Simon Sinek, " A boss has the title, a leader has the people", obviously, you are a leader and dynamic mentor of impeccable personality with amalgam of mentees .
