Pelican Valley CEO Celebrates Birthday with Inmates, donates cash, rice

Dr. Babatunde Adeyemo, CEO of Pelican Valley Estate, marked his 44th birthday by spending time with inmates in Ibara, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

 During the visit, he distributed bags of rice and cash to the inmates, providing a gesture of goodwill and support for those who are incarcerated.

 The CEO's act of philanthropy highlights the need for society to show compassion and care for those who are often marginalized and forgotten. 

Adeyemo's generosity sets an example for others to follow in giving back to their communities and helping those in need.

Meanwhile, the realtor firm also  had a novelty match with Nigeria Correctional Center, which draws 1-1 respectively.

Dr Babatunde while addressing the inmates at the correctional service hinted that he chose to celebrate his birthday with the inmates to encourage them not to feel downcast because of where they are, but to encourage them not to give up on God.

Speaking with journalists, the Deputy Correctional center DCC James Ogunmoyede hinted that after Senator Ibikunle Amosun who came in January to donate to the inmates, the Pelican boss is the first individual to visit the correctional home to make feel among.

He however appealed to individual to emulate the kind gesture of Dr Babatunde Adeyemo not to neglect the inmates because of their present situation but to also move to encourage them.

Also Dr.  Adeyemo has also initiated moves to restore electricity to Ijeun Ariobiologbo and Arowa, two communities in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State that has been in darkness for about 60 years.

The company signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Thursday with the representatives of the communities to connect them with electricity using its transformer that serves its estate located about 200 metres away from them.

The CEO informed that he decided to undertake the task of connecting the beneficiaries to the national grid as part of the firm’s corporate social responsibility to mark his 44th birthday.

Adeyemo hinted the first phase of the intervention would give 20 houses access to electricity while others would be accommodated in subsequent phases.

The Baale of Ijeun Ariobiologbo, Chief Rasheed Odewale, and Baale of Arowa, Chief Akeem Raheem commended the firm for coming to their rescue.

Chief Raheem added that  the two communities have been without electricity for over 60 years.

He said before now, people had been promising to connect the communities to public power supply without fulfilling the promises.

Also speaking, Mrs. Amoke Alani from Arowa appealed to the Estate firm to also provide people of the community with borehole while lamenting that the community’s stream which had been their only source of water has now been polluted due to flood.

She maintained that the indigenes and residents risk cholera and other water borne diseases should they keep drinking water from the stream, especially during this rainy season.
