According to Abiodun, the late Pa Olalere bequeathed a politics of development to the progressive class.

“Baba would rather stick to his policy of the people first, before the individual.

“We youths in politics learned a lot from Baba Adelere as he was seen as a leading light that would want the best for the state, his community and his followers.

“He worked for the unity of the core progressive elements despite his age and till his death, we shall remember him for these,” Olasupo said.
