As loved ones marked the 73rd post-humous birthday of business mogul, Aare Abdulazeez Arisekola Alao on lovers’ day, February 14, one of his sons has revealed that the late Islamic cleric left four wives and 37 children.

This revelation was made by Mr Umar Farouk Arisekola-Alao while being hosted during a Space FM Radio Station show on Wednesday in Ibadan.

While speaking further during the radio interview-session which was monitored by PMParrot, Umar, who was a one-time Commissioner for Sports in Oyo State described his late father as a God-fearing man who lived a fulfilled life.

“My father had no other hidden power except that given to him by Allah as he was a devout Muslim. He was a man who related very well with the high and mighty as well as the masses.”

On why Arisekola used to dish out food items and give out money to the common people, Umar said “He gave out food and money to people willingly because he used the gesture to appreciate and worship God.

“This is not all, he used to tell us never to judge or retaliate so that God would continue to bless us. This is why, we his children have continued the assignment of giving to the less priviledged. Every month end, we give and cook for the people. Pay a visit to our Oluwo Nla, Bodija residence to confirm this.”

Umar Farouk also reconfirmed that all the properties of his late father are being administered by a six-member board of trustees made up of his siblings.

When asked what he is presently doing, he responded “I am into Oil and Gas. I also execute contracts. In addition, I am a politician.”

He specifically announced that since he is the only Arisekola offspring that is into politics, he is focused and ready to sustain the legacies left behind by his late father via the political platform.

“For now, I am a card carrying member of the ruling All Progressives Congress. I do not have any Godfather in politics, God is my Godfather o!  My immediate plan is to contest for the Ibadan North seat at the Federal House of Representatives in 2019”, he announced.
