President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, inaugurated his cabinet, swearing-in forty-three (43) ministers. 

During the ceremony, citations of the ministers were read and one stood out of the lot because of the message inherent in the story.

It is the story of Senator Omotayo Alasoadura from Ondo State.

According to the citation as read by President Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, Senator Alasoadura was born on August 12, 1949.

A Chartered Accountant, Alasoadura started work in 1974 as a messenger at Balogun Ayinfalu Badejo & Co Chartered Accountants, and rose from the ranks to become the managing partner and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the same firm.

Chief Alasoadura rose from messenger to CEO in just 16 years.

Soon after, he was appointed Commissioner for Finance and Planning between 2003 and 2009.

He later represented Ondo-Central Senatorial district in the Upper legislative House between 2015 and 2019. (Channels TV)
