SB Daodu,The Loss of A Titan…SRJ
The transition of Baba SB Daodu has been described as a mamoth loss to Osogbo, The Ataoja of Osogboland and leaders of Osogbo including Asiwaju Tunde Badmus and Pa Hameed Omidiran.
Reacting to the demise of the late former chairman of Osogbo Local Government in a condolence message,Dr Ajibola Basiru representing Osun Central Senatorial District,said the death was sudden and painful to him having come from the same ward with the man he described as a giant in Osogbo.
“I grew up to know Baba SB Daodu as one of the political and social heavyweights of Osogbo. His name would ring bell and reverberate in social circles in those days and till his passage.”
“Baba was a prominent member of Oroki Social Club,a Club of young successful men who literally put Osogbo on the World map,particularly through an album waxed by the Apala maestro, the late Haruna Isola for the Club.”
According to Senator Ajibola Basiru, there is no way the history of development of Osogbo will be written without SB Daodu getting a conspicuous mention.
He condoles with the immediate and extended family of the deceased social and political icon as he commiserates with the Ataoja of Osogboland, Osogbo leaders and sons and daughters of the town over the death of Pa SB Daodu.
Senator Basiru prayed Allaah to uphold the family left behind and grant Baba Aljanah firdaus.
