Who the heck is Prof Adeolu Durotoye? Facebook user ask

A facebook user with the name Olagunju Aderemi revealed what he has gathered about the person of Prof. Adeolu Durotoye.

Here is what he wrote

To cut the long story short and make the short story very brief, I’ll start by stating that I DO NOT know Prof Adeolu Durotoye in person, I have NEVER met him and I am not keen to meet him right now. So My opinion and analysis are purely based on factual evidences and not any form of sentiment, as I have nothing to gain. The first time I saw Prof Adeolu Durotoye’s posters was a couple of months ago along Igbona road in osogbo and that day I said to myself “who’s this guy just wasting his time and money?” I finally concluded in
my mind that this Prof. Adeolu Durotoye is just an attention seeker, or at best somebody who is trying to negotiate a lesser position as many politicians do. Little did I know that I had just judged
the man wrongly. A few days after I saw Prof Durotoye’s posters, I stumbled on him during a radio interview on RAVE FM where he was discussing his vision, proposition and manifestos and his strategy to take Osun to a greater height if he eventually becomes governor of Osun state.

Throughout the rave FM interview, Prof, Durotoye was fantastic in the way
he presented and defended his manifestos, but I was not still convinced
that the man is a serious governorship candidate. Fortunately for me I
heard him again during a debate /interview on Unique FM with the current
APC chairman in Osun where he proved himself more to me that he actually
understands the business of governance but I had some elements of doubts
STILL.

Before the end of the said interview the APC chairman said something
that surprised me about Prof Adeolu Durotoye. The APC chairman in his words
said “I know Prof Durotoye very WELL, he’s a good man, and the right candidate that can take Osun to greater heights,but he belongs to the wrong party,
the PDP”.

Whether the PDP is a wrong party or not is subjudice and I don’t want to delve into that but the positives in the APC chairman’s remarks is that Prof Durotoye is a good and credible candidate without blemish.

Nowif the APC chairman can say this about a PDP GUBERNATORIAL ASPIRANT, what other conviction do I need?
As from that point I started to follow Prof. Durotoye’s activities on social, print and electronic media and I noticed that he is making tremendous progress and meeting with party leaders leaving no stone unturned. Hardly would a week go bye that Prof. Durotoye would not be in
the news for positive reasons. He has also met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the Ooni of Ife, the Ataoja of Osogbo and numerous other political and traditional rulers. All of these convinced me that Prof Adeolu Durotoye is a serious contender in the Osun 2018 governorship election and also he’s not just an attention seeker, so I searched for his profile and wow, it was fantastic. I immediately realized that this is the kind of candidate that can win elections for the PDP at
this crucial time.

HE IS YOUNG, VIBRANT AND HAS THE MENTAL CAPACITY TO DRIVE THE DYING ECONOMY OF OSUN STATE.

Prof. Adeolu Durotoye is the link between the YOUNG and the OLD, as he is
just 48yrs old. Prof Adeolu Durotoye does not have any stains on his NAME,
he is the kind of technocrat that people would embrace without stress, another advantage is also that he hails from OSOGBO, the state capital that has very high voting power, where the governorship
election is won and lost.

Over 25% of all votes cast in the 2014 election was from OSOGBO. OMISORE
lost the elections with about 100k votes, which close to 60k votes against
him came from OSOGBO. This means that if the PDP were to present an Osogbo
credible indegene like Prof. Adeolu Durotoye for the 2018 governorship
election, osogbo indegenes would vote en mass for their SON, because they have
no realistic chance of ruling Osun for the next 16years and it’s an aberration if Osogbo is not given a chance NOW.

Prof. Adeolu Durotoye is the best candidate in the Osun governorship race right now, and the PDP should take advantage of this golden opportunity to return to power in the state and also to save the masses from the shackle of oppression, hunger and abject poverty, AJELE has put them through.

Prof. Adeolu Durotoye is globally exposed and locally bred, he has seen it all. According to Prof. Adeolu Durotoye
“good governance is 80% economics and 20% politics" 
This is the kind of governor Osun state needs right now. The most catchy of his manifestos is the promise of 200k jobs in the first 12months of his administration as Osun state governor. 200k gainful employment would go a long way in reviving the almost redundant economy of OUR DEAR OSUN STATE.

FINALLY, I must state again that I have never met Prof. Adeolu Durotoye,
and I am not in any way close to him and also not keen to meet him right
now, so my humble opinion is based on the premise of undisputable facts. NO
SENTIMENTS ATTACHED, as I have nothing to gain. I am from ILESHA WEST LOCAL GOVERNMENT, in the OSUN EAST senatorial district. THE PDP HAS THE RIGHT TOOL TO WIN THE FORTHCOMING ELECTION IN OSUN STATE, THEY HAVE THE ROUND PEG THAT CAN FIT INTO THE ROUND HOLE, THE PDP WOULD WIN MASSIVELY IF THEY CAN PRESENT PROF. ADEOLU DUROTOYE FOR GOVERNOR OSUN 2018, we the humble masses
are waiting on the PDP to come rescue us, and the PDP must come with the right candidate because we do not want to go from fry pan to fire.

I HOPE THIS HUMBLE OPINION GETS TO THE RIGHT PLACE, TO THE LEADERS AND DELGATES OF THE PDP IN OSUN. OSUN 2018 ELECTIONS, IS THE LITMUS TEST FOR THE 2019 GENERAL ELECTION, IF THE PDP WANTS TO WIN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, THEY
MUST WIN IN OSUN STATE FIRST. A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE, I REST MY CASE.
