Honouring Hon. Mashood Atanda Mustapha with the chieftaincy title of Olu-Omo of Yoruba Land , Accra , Ghana , was in recognition of his political ingenuity and contributions to human development. A group, the Kamal Adigun –led Kwara Awareness Movement, KAM, not only congratulated him but also extolled his virtues..
The group described Mustapha as one of the poster boys in Kwara politics and Nigeria as a whole. He is also according to the group a blessing to humanity.
‘It is no longer news that Hon. Mashood Atanda Mustapha has been installed as Olu-Omo of Yoruba Land of Accra Region of Ghana. The installation by Oba Hamzat Peregrino (VII) had in attendance Governor Abdulrasaq Abdulrahman, top traditional rulers including Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi and the Olofa of Offa,Oba Muftau Gbadamosi, Hon. Ganiyu Cook Olododo, who represents Ilorin East /Ilorin South in the House of Representatives, Governor Abdulrazaq’s Special Adviser on Special Duties, Alh. Yinka Aluko and the Oloriewe of Oro kingdom, Chief Raheem Adedoyin .
The city of Accra, indeed, stood still for the man of honour.
When it comes to politics, MM stands alone and represents one of the finest brains of Kwara political intelligentsia. He’s the only one whose side has never lost any election, both at the state and the national levels.
He has record of excellent performance as member of the House of Representatives between 2011 and 2015. He also made tremendous input into the government of Kwara state between 2003 and 2011 as member of the State Executive Council. MM is one of the poster boys in Kwara politics and Nigeria at large.
As a philanthropist, MM is a blessing to humanity, he is always willing to support the needy. His house is usually a Mecca of sort, as he regularly attends to the needy. He has used his widow’s mite to bless many widows and to also give succour to the orphans. MM is God-sent when it comes to philanthropy.
As a businessman, MM, is a business mogul with his eyes on legitimate and profitable ventures. He has his investment in trading, properties, hospitality and general service. The quest to found business and contribute positively to humanity was the reason he left the Nigerian Immigration Service, the decision that has since paid off. MM has become one of the leading business gurus in Nigeria and beyond, including Ghana.
MM is a politician that always strives for knowledge his induction as member of the Institute of Management Consultants at the Rock View Hotel, Abuja, where former Minister of Education presented certificate to him lent credence to this. That was just an attachment to other academic qualifications, certificates and awards.
Moshood Mustapha’s lineage is rich in titles and honours. The Mustapha family is one of the elitist families in Ilorin that constantly enjoy the fraternity and trust of the Emir of Ilorin, the holder of both the spiritual and administrative leadership of Ilorin.
Mashood’s grandfather was an Alkali while his father is the current Wali of Ilorin, making him one of the stakeholders in the city.
Moshood’s father served as Commissioner for Finance during the second Republic . A disciplinarian whose love for his children knows no boundary, his victimization and illegal suspension from the APC Elders Council by the Sarakites did not make the old man have a decision-switch about his support for his son to contest ahead of the 2019 guber poll. Hon. Mashood Mustapha enjoys the love and unflinching support of his father, siblings and the entire members of the family.
Hon. Mashood Mustapha is one of the shakers of Kwara state political space. He brought glamour and passion to the game of politics in Kwara state when he threw his hat into the ring . He was the first politician to break the then APC into two by organizing parallel congresses at his Alanamu Ward , Ilorin West Local Government before factionalizing same party at the state level, thereby paving way for the progressive PDP to join.
His declaration for the Governorship seat at Arca Santa event centre has been described as the largest gathering and first of its kind when it involves political activities in the state.
Success doesn’t however get to MM’s head. Despite his monumental achievements in life, he’s still very humble and humane. A man with a large heart, his spirit of forgiveness is legendary. He’s very religious and always attributes his success to Allah, the giver of all’ the group stated
