In fulfilling one of the key campaign promises by the Olusola Egbesola-led executive council, the Odole of Yorubaland, Chief Kessington Adebutu (aka Baba Ijebu) has begun the construction of 1000 seater hall for Abeokuta Sports Club 1904.

Egbesola, a successful businessman, entrepreneur and technocrat, has proven that his tenure would witness a massive turnaround in the club.
The foundation of the project has since commenced after necessary approvals were obtained from the relevant agencies.
The Ijebu, Ogun State-born Kessington, notable as a philanthropist and successful businessman, had promised to be part of the success story of Egbesola-led exco of the club.
With the project, it is certain that Egbesola and his team would not only consolidate on the achievements of the past administrations, they would also pursue innovative landmark projects.
In appreciating Baba Ijebu for the support and gesture, Egbesola promised not to disappoint or fail on his campaign promises for the club.
“I want to express my sincere appreciation to Chief Kessington for his fatherly support.
“We are proud to be associated with him. We pray that God will give him long life so that he would do more for humanity.
“By the grace of God, we will do our best to uplift Abeokuta Sports Club 1904 in our time and we will not disappoint those who entrusted us with their votes during the last election,” he said, adding that the members should expect more new developments in the coming months.
