LEADERSHIP in tough times requires men with clear vision and a rare sense of service that will add values to the populace and for the good of all.
Oyetola’s imperative capabilities as the then Chief of Staff made him relevant and convincing, that he earned the support and confidence of civil servants, politicians, youth and the citizenry.
At a time Osun State needed an experienced technocrat that could confront the challenges of grappling with the lean revenue, indebtedness, contractual obligations, collapsed infrastructure and unpaid salaries, the immediate past Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola-led administration required a strategist imbued with integrity, competence, sacrifice and ability to wriggle the state out of the scary economic predicament as a Chief of Staff.
The searchlight beamed on Gboyega Oyetola to help initiate improvements, cultivate new innovations in the provisions of infrastructure and to unwaveringly render corresponding services to the state as a tested technocrat and successful businessman.
In recognition of his sterling qualities in all spheres of life, he has been decorated with an array of awards of leadership, outstanding performance, and excellence in public service.
As a man above average in his ability and quality, he desired freedom and veered off corporate world and flung his whole life into business.
With candor and experience, he swiftly responded to the challenges of the new environment to establish SilverTrust Insurance Brokers Limited, where he deployed dynamic interaction and financial acumen to competitive advantage, battled ceaselessly over market shares and created a template for a profitable growth in the future for the company.
His strategies; thinking and ability to excel at all times prompted his appointment as the Executive Vice Chairman at the Paragon Group of Companies, with interests in Oil and Gas, Mining, and Real Estate since 2005 until 2011.
Adegboyega’s business acumen and ability to understand the fundamental practice of management threw at him the Chairman’s seat of Ebony Properties Limited, having served as a director at Pyramid Securities Limited.
Cerebral and enigmatic, he has demonstrated bravery, sagacity, and love for the people.
Gboyega Oyetola’s coming to the helm of affairs in Osun with a roadmap towards setting explicit targets and creating necessary growth that will safeguard the lives of the people, empower and create jobs for the teeming youths, protect the integrity of the private sectors, give life to start-ups, raise innovative entrepreneurs, give confidence to investors and sustain the momentum of growth.
