“My darling late father was passionate about Ekiti State, especially his home town Efon Alaaye, Efon Local Government. He was a force to reckon with and an institution. If God permits, I would like to continue what he started. I have already been doing that since my dad- Otunba (chief) Adebodun Oluwadamilare Adewunmi passed away on the 6th of December 2006. The good Lord and His spirit will also guide me.
He was the son of late High Chief Olademomi Adewunmi, the Obaloja Arapaiya of Obalu Arapaiya of Obalu Quarters, Efon-Alaaye, Ekiti State- the number two among the six Kingmakers (Iwarafas). Historically his father was the first to introduce to Efon-Alaaye silver coins to replace the cowries, the then legal tender.
His mother was the Late Princess Julianah Alademute Soro-Ade, the daughter of Late Oba Arosuboja, the Alaaye of Efon Kingdom. Princess Julianah was the one that mobilised her friends and colleagues in their two most enlightened women socialites in town, Egbe Eyesa and Egbe Aran Ikupekunde, to travel to Oshogbo on foot to carry home on their heads, all the iron sheets, to roof the church. That was one of the reasons my dad played a pivotal role in the construction of St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Idagba.

The completed Efon-Alaaye house at 105, Apata St. Lagos, is monumental evidence of his patriotism and love for his people. If not over, he trained about 400 children to school in Ekiti State. Not to talk of family/friends and abroad. He was a Humanitarian. He then won for himself the nickname Gambari, because he lived part of his younger days in the Northern part of Nigeria, very close to most Northern rulers and power brokers.

All women and men that wish their own children well, please continue to wish me well, pray for me and let God decide, says Princess Adewunmi.
I joined PDP in October 1998, well read, fantastic pedigree, well grounded, sound and professional. At the age of 58 years old, I am good to go, I have learnt from the best, or am I too young?
We are all saying young shall grow, when will the young grow, when certain people are always trying to block their future. What legacy do you want to leave behind, when all you share to them is rice, money etc. Instead of building them up to take over in the future, they are all boxed in a corner of depression, hunger, frustration, unemployment, poverty etc. Every 4 years they are met with failed promises, while the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer with no voice to express their anger and frustration. Let me be the voice for the voiceless and hope for the hopeless.
It takes a courageous woman to take a bold step amongst gladiators in Ekiti Gubernatorial race come 2022, so if I can not be encouraged, it is fine, at least the world will know I tried my hardest best. I will do my campaign and primaries in Jesus Mighty name and God will lead the way, Amen.
Let someone say Amen to that.
It takes team work, i can’t do it alone. No promises. Let us fix the damages on ground first, build a solid foundation that will help us grow stronger and happy as a community.
I am a strong woman and a wonderful mother, glory be to God. Let us fix our home. We have no where else to call our own.
I am not a billionaire, but comfortable in my own rights, I presently have 26 children I am sending to school personally, in well kept Government schools, 4 children 12 yrs, 14yrs, 16yrs and 18yrs are presently living with me, plus an orphan 22yrs from Togo. I help the schools occasionally with donations. Let us learn to give helping hand always, where needed, when able, it is not mandatory, but voluntarily, to make Nigeria a better place. Train a child and save the future.
When we that want to make a change were sleeping, the opportunist came in to steal. Corruption has been the key to success for some, but integrity is my key to success. I want to be the voice for the voiceless, a listener for those that want to be heard and a strong pillar to build a foundation for the unborn.
I need your support and prayers. You can get across to me, if need be.
I am coming out…………I want the world to know.
Thank you for your understanding and I appreciate all the women and men that have good genuine hearts.
No harm in coming out, if I don’t, I have offended God, Enough is Enough.
I come in peace.
God bless you all.
