He has the ability to work as a team player with effective leadership qualities, work under pressure, as an achievement-driven professional and a fast learner of new ideas.

Other mortals with such an intimidating litancy of achievements would swagger with such superlative pomposity that the imperial Nero would be cowed before them. But true to his nature, he has always demonstrated that true royalty is not living in vain pomp but in great virtue adorned with humility.

HRM Dr Oyelude is that superior gentleman that is modest in speech but irrepressible in his actions. His transformation of Owu-Kuta Kingdom; based on his capacity to harness the assiatance of friends and well-wishers; his diplomatic engineering of his people; his tireless efforts at persuading and winning over known detractors are special gifts that God endowed him with.

To be perfectly just is an attribute of the divine nature, to be just to the best of his abilities is the glory of a good King. As a good King, he will forever remain a landmark on the road of humanity; and will forever be a reference point in Owu-Kuta and the nation at large.
