"You made me proud for bringing me back into the fold," the traditional ruler added. 

While relating the events that led to his being appointed as the Public Relations  Manager of Nigeria Airways, Oba Ogunleye urged the Ogun NIPR Executive members not to blame any circumstances they might find themselves but strive to create a better circumstances for themselves as situations that looks frustrating in the first instance may eventually become very fruitful and exciting.

"Never blame any circumstances you find yourself, create your own circumstances instead," he stated.
