Oyinlola noted that aside from other achievements of his administration, ending the indigenous fight between the neighbouring town remaining topmost as it was believed that nothing could end the war that had lasted centuries, but with the help of the Obokun and Ife monarchs.
While appreciating the Board and Management of African Newspapers of Nigeria (ANN) PLC, publishers of Tribune titles, Oyinlola noted that the award was special to him as it signified that he remained relevance even nine years after leaving the office.
