The supportive yelling and refulgent admiration showered on the outgone Executive President of Federal Teaching Hospital Ido-Ekiti (FETHI) Cooperative and Multipurpose Society, Com. Oluropo Adeleke on Tuesday after he handed over the leadership of the financial institution to another set of Executives, can best said to be heroic and pregnant of signals to the new Exco.
Adeleke, who was vivaciously embraced and given countless handshakes and hug by elated cooperators who described his leadership as having a round peg in a round hole, extolled the cooperators for given him and other members of his executives the chances to lead in their respective positions, adding that the limpid resuscitation and rebranding which the society had witnessed can only be attributed to the support and understanding shown by both members and the executives.
He acknowledged the series of efforts put in place by the management of the hospital toward ensuring all financial cases and issues were settled out of court. He said it takes a leader with solomonic wisdom like the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Professor Adekunle Ajayi, to have such differences resolved amicably without creating enmity or more of it.
Expressing gratitude to the outgone executives on behalf of all cooperators, the hospital librarian, Mr Lawal, noted the choice of electing Com. Adeleke the President in 2017 as the best ever. He described him as a financial expert who had evidently proved his expertise within the span of 19-month and set up a record which successive administrations may not find easy to break.
The midday drama of admiration and appreciation of selfless service well rendered which erupted immediately after Adeleke-led Exco was dissolved, put the programme on few minutes hold for positive comments from several cooperators.
However, Com. Adeleke tendered his unreserved apology for any stringent decision he might have taken in the general interest of the society but negatively perceived. He said there was no how the enlisted achievements could have been recorded without stepping on toes.
He therefore charged the new executives led by Com. Ebenezer Adetoran to be focused and consider regular disbursement of loans as priority of his administration.
In his acceptance speech, the newly elected president promised to keep to his electioneering promises and work hand in glove with his executive members.
