CELEBRATING GBENGA SODEINDE, A VETERAN JOURNALIST @ 50
By Wasiu Owolewa
A 50th birthday is one of the most important birthdays a person has in life, it’s a milestone and accomplishment, and the person being honored deserves the best that their friends and loved ones can muster.
The man being celebrated today is a gentle, humble, lovable, and responsible character.
He is a man that is broad-minded, calm, careful, charming, creative and highly intelligent, hardworking, and unassuming veteran journalist.
We met but not too long. During our course of interaction I found him to be friendly, frank, easy going and dynamic.
Mr Sodeinde is a man of not much words and willing to help when needed. He hardly gets angry and always smiling even when he is going through serious difficult situation.
Mr Sodeinde Studied Library Science and worked at the University of Lagos Library and College of Education, Ikere Library before venturing into journalism.
He has since been in journalism for more than twenty years and has worked in many newspapers including Anchor newspaper, Daily Independent, Eko today, Examiner, Premier, Leadership and Daily Times.
Mr. Sodeinde has served Ekiti State government as Special Assistant (media) on ALGON Affairs to Governor under Governor Kayode Fayemi during his first term. His personal publication includes ALGON WATCH 2014 and MY LAWMAKERS
Sir, as you celebrate your golden jubilee, I pray that you will celebrate many more years on Earth in good health and success. God will continue to uphold and grant you greater joy, good luck, breakthrough, good health, and divine upliftment.
On behalf of my humble self and Hon. Fatoba (MHR) Campaign Organisation, I wish you HAPPY GOLDEN JUBILEE.
