Mr. Olayinka Agboola, the Chief Operating Officer at Parrot Xtra Media Network (publishers/producers of Parrot Xtra Magazine, and Parrot Xtra Hour on Splash 105.5fm) has taken to the social media to celebrate his Ibadan big-boy friend and successful Chartered Accountant, Olajide Adesina.


The deceased, whose father was a retired Judge of the Oyo State High Court, Justice Okeyode Adesina died at a Lagos hospital last Thursday at the age of 58.

Agboola, in his tribute expressed sadness over the death of Olajide but was quick to add that “yes, Jydo Baba, we are pained by your demise but then, we are full of praises to God for the very fulfilled life you lived.”

The Press Secretary to Oyo State’s former governor, Late Alhaji Dr Lamidi Onaolapo Adesina continued “Jydo was a man that we all depended on in so many ways. He was a good listener, a sincere adviser, a cheerful giver, a dutiful family man, responsible friend, dependable ally, God-fearing man and upon all, he was a genuine ‘Afeniferere’.

“I can remember when I had my medical challenge and had to be on admission at the University College Hospital here in Ibadan for several weeks four years ago, Jide, alongside Governor ‘Seyi Makinde, Architect Muyiwa Ige, Semiu Adenekan (DJ Semight), Hassan Fatungase, Godwin Mekwuye, Tunji Adeosun, Dr Funmi Soneye, Sola Adegbola, Professor Jesse Abiodun Otegbayo, Dr Sikiru Adebayo, Dr Olukemi Adekanmbi and others were used by God to ensure my survival.

“Jide personally seized two laptop computers from me when he discovered that I was still working on my hospital bed. He took them home. He insisted that I must not be allowed to work while still in the hospital.”

Agboola then used the opportunity to pray for the family he left behind, especially the wife, Mrs Modupe Adesina, a Director in the Oyo State Ministry of Trade as well as his children, his aged mother and siblings.

“Jide became my friend when our paths crossed at the Polytechnic, Ibadan where we had our A/Level programmes. He has since been my right hand man. He single handedly registered Parrot Xtra Media Network for us while insisting that it was the way to go. He was our unofficial accountant and auditor.
