Group asks Ajimobi to immortalize Adebayo Faleti

The Society of Young Nigerian Writers (SYNW) has called on the Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi to immortalize the late Alagba Adebayo Faleti by naming
either Oyo State Council for Arts and Culture or the Oyo State Library Board after him, reports ITRealms.

The late Adebayo Faleti who wrote, produced and acted a number of movies, including Thunderbolt, Magun (2001), Afonja (1&2), 2002; Basorun Gaa (2004), and Sawo-Sogberi (2005) passed on to glory on the 23rd of July 2017 at the age of 86.

A press statement made available to ITRealms, Wednesday by the national president of the organization, Mr. Wole Adedoyin, described Faleti as Yoruba literary sage who is regarded as a great colossus and deserved even in death more honour than he is currently being accorded through press releases from eminent personalities and organizations.

According to Adedoyin they were not surprised that the past and present crop of Oyo state political administrators are not fond of honoring their outstanding sons and daughters.

“Till today no government immortalized Baba Supo Kosemani  despite his contributions to Yoruba Language and Proverbs. Same thing with Dr. Larinde Akinleye. They are almost forgotten. No epitaphs, statues to immortalize their names by the state government and they were brilliant and outstanding sons and daughters of Oyo state” Adedoyin declared.
