Also, in a related development, the Head of Department, Political Science, Adeniran College of Education, Mr. Adebambo Wasiu, while presenting the ‘Best Political Activist’ award to Comrade Adewale, who was represented by his Media Relations Officer, Comrade Evwibovwe Irikefe, noted that “the local government boss has changed the perception of activist in this country, through his ingenuity, charisma, doggedness and resoluteness on salient issues.
