Popular gospel musician, Mr. Yinka Ayefele, on Tuesday expressed `profound gratitude’ to Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State for assisting him to remodel and rebuild his Music House, which was last year partially demolished by agents of the state government, to a better edifice.

According to the state governor, Ayefele as a way to appreciate the governor, on Tuesday led top management of the station on what he called a `thank you’ visit to the governor, in his office.

Ayefele, who described Ajimobi as a listening father and good leader, said he had learnt lessons from the whole saga and had appreciated the need for mutual understanding and cooperation between the government and citizens.

It would be recalled that the building was partially demolished for allegedly contravening environmental laws by the state Physical and Urban Development Control in August 2018.

The governor, however, had intervened in the matter following personal pleas by Ayefele and the expression of his preparedness to comply with the restructuring model proposed by the agency.

The agency had justified its action on the initial refusal of the management of the building to rectify the infractions and its insistence on safeguarding lives and property of residents and commuters plying the Music House area.
