Meet General Jemibewon’s Ph-D in-laws
General Jemibewon is not just a trained Army General
but a very gifted lawyer as well. He enrolled and studied law at the University
of Lagos
couple of years ago and he was later called to the Nigerian
Bar. The Iyah- Gbedde born Army top brass is also a book warm. This fact
can be glanced from his three in-laws who came all the way from Ekiti, Ibadan and Lagos to honor
him at Iyah-Gbedde in Kogi State. They are all doctorate
degree holder. One of them is the first medical Doctor cum surgeon from Orin
Ekiti
in the person of Dr. Dayo Ajayi who was at the event
with his beautiful wife. The others are Dr. Tunde Ajayi a Ph-D holder in
Political Science and lecturer at one of the foremost universities in Ekiti State while the least among them
is Barrister
(Dr.)
Abimbola Ajayi
, a Lagos based banker. They all came to Iyah Gbedde with their spouses to
support the Jemibewons. Dr. Dayo, Dr Tunde and Dr.
Abimbola
are the children of the late Chief John Bosede Ajayi,
the former Principal of St. Patrick Grammar School, Ibadan who passed away on June 22, 2015
at the age of 85.  Their elder sister, Chief
(Mrs.) Modupe Jemibewon
is the wife of General Jemibewon.

How Nollywood Stormed Iyah-Gbedde for
the Jemibewons
The Nollywood segment of Nigeria’s
entertainment sector was represented at the star studded funeral as veteran
actress Funmi Tijani and famous dancer and entertainment consultant, Tessy
Alero Yembra
made the day extra-ordinary during the Wake Keeping Night
for Mama
Rachael Emife Jemibewon
. The two acts that are very close to Madam
Dupe Jemibewon
later brought other young stars along with them who
lighted up the event and made the night worth observing. A live band was also
around to honor guests with various tunes and musical rendition. It was such a
lovely night as Madam Funmi Tijani and Princess Tessy Alero Yembra
brought life to the event alongside local artistes.

Ex-Kogi Deputy Governor storm
Jemibewon’s House
This tall and
handsome man arrived at exactly 7:20Pm. Architect Sunday Awoniyi the
immediate past Deputy Governor of Kogi State under the PDP era of Captain
Idris Wada
is more or less like a son to General David Jemibewon.
His late father, Chief Sunday Boluduro Awoniyi (CON) the Aro
of Mopa Land
was the Political Godfather to General David Jemibewon.
In fact, it was rumored that it was the support 
the General gave the late Chief Awoniyi to emerge as PDP
Chairman couple of years ago that cost him his relationship with a former
Nigerian Head of State as Awoniyi was denied the position based on his
perceived northern orientation. However, the son of the late Okun patriot and Chairman of the National Executive Council of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) is a son to
the General and this he demonstrated with his arrival to the General’s country
home in the evening of Thursday August 4. The London trained Architect turned politician was led to where
Mama’s casket was laid to take a look at her face. He later returned to the
garden where himself, General Jemibewon, Barrister
Tunde Ayeni, Segun Awolowo Jnr
and other elite friends of the General
enjoyed the rest of the night with music  rendition amidst several other activities to
mark the night. It will be recalled that Architect Sunday Awoniyi was at the
funeral of the General’s father-in-law, Chief JB Ajayi last year August in Orin Ekiti with his pretty wife, Tokunbo.
He came at the time as the reigning Deputy Governor of Kogi state.
This time around he is no more in power but his humility stays still. He was
the cynosure of many eyes at the event, especially ladies who couldn’t just
take their inner eyes off him.

How Senator Tunde Ogbeha led
dignitaries to Mama’s Friday Event.
The final
funeral activities of Mama Rachael Emife Jemibewon on
Friday August 5 witnessed the arrival of more celebrities and top Nigerians to Iyah-Gbedde
for General
David
Jemibewon
. One of the big boys and ex-Military top brass who first
arrived Iya-Gbedde that morning was General (Now Senator) Jonathan
Tunde
Ogbeha
. Truth is that Senator Ogbeha’s arrival to General Jemibewon’s
house is very symbolic. Why? In 2003, he and General David
Jemibewon
slugged it out for the Kogi West senatorial ticket and Jemibewon
lost it to Ogbeha. That was the first and last time General Jemibewon played
politics. Ogbeha who was Governor of old Bendel State between
December 1987 and August 1990 also served as first Governor of Akwa
Ibom
state between September 1987 and July 1989. He later contested as
Senator of Kogi West senatorial
district between 1999 and 2007. When a journalist asked him to described General
David Jemibewon
at the event he simply smiled and said ‘How do you expect me to give report on my
boss?’
The Senator who now runs a Private radio station (First Private
Radio Station in Kogi State) stole glances at his arrival. He didn’t leave
until the end of the event.

Hear what ECWA Pastor told guests at
Mama’s funeral
Do you know
that
Reverend (Dr.) John Sunday Owoeye
is a powerful man of God across North
Central Nigeria? Please, don’t tell anyone I told you first. Apart from being a
powerful member of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), this fire brand
preacher is equally a top leader of what is known as 2nd ECWA, Ilorin,
Kwara
State. He preached at the pre-burial sermon at Mama’s final rites on Friday
August 5. The man of God reminded all the elites and ordinary people at the
event which started 10am prompt that they should remember their final day on
earth; that they will be leaving everything including their comfort and riches
behind and should therefore impact people’s lives positively while on this
earth. Trying to drive his sermon deeper into the hearts of the strong and
ordinary men sitting at the event, Rev. Owoeye gave the story of the
end of once upon a time richest man in the world Rockefeller, the ECWA
Reverend noted that “When Rockefeller died,  journalists in America went investigating the
worth of his estate. They asked ‘how much has this man left behind?” they
wanted to know how rich he was but the famous German-American Evangelist, Billy Graham answered the journalists,
he said “He left all”. He said Rockefeller
indeed left everything behind by giving to charity before his demise”.
The
preacher who preached both in vernacular and English Language went further by
declaring that even when he dies, he will leave behind his favorite sermons “When I die I will leave behind the preaching I love the most”.
The Preacher accused his listeners of not remembering death until such
occasions like Mama Emife’s funeral “You
remember death only when you attend funerals. But you are going to die one day
and when you die, you can’t sue God. There is no court where you can sue God
for what he does”.
The man of God urged his listeners to think of where
they are going after death. He rounded up by advising them to receive Jesus Christ into their lives as He is the only one who can give them the
next place they are going to live after death.

The General taking a last look at his great mum, the late MAMA RACHAEL EMIFE JEMIBEWON
How Eminent Nigerians visited Mama’s
mausoleum
Because
General David Medayese Jemibewon
appreciates his mum, Mama
Rachael Emife Jemibewon
so much; he built her a burial chamber. The
burial chamber built on a quarter of land behind his massive Iyah-Gbedde
country home is made solely of red bricks. The event of the day which started
at 10 am came to a climax when Mama’s body was being lifted and taken to her
final resting place—the burial chamber.  The whole activity of moving Mama to her final
resting place started at exactly 11: am and ended 12noon. Eminent Nigerians
like Oil baron,  Jide Omokore, Barrister
Olatunde Ayeni
, Senator Tunde Ogbeha, Architect
Sunday
Awoniyi,
Barrister Segun Awolowo Jnr, Ambassador Usman, eminent
clergy men, family, friends, well-wishers, and ordinary Nigerians including
beggars followed the procession which was well coordinated by the BMC
pall bearers and a music band. That singular historic event drew lot of emotion
out of people. It was the biggest aspect of the event as you will find out.
About a thousand people were at Mama’s grave side to bid her farewell.

The General in a blaze of emotion as he closes his mum’s casket
…And the General Wept.
Psalm 35 verse 14 says ‘I paced about as though as he was my friend or brother: I bowed down
heavily, as one who mourns for his mother’
. This aspect of the Bible came
heavily on General David Jemibewon when his mother was about to be lowered
into the grave inside her burial chamber built of red brick. The General
supported by his surviving sister Mrs. Janet Owadokun and other
eminent members of the Jemibewon family of Iyah-Gbedde suddenly lost his composure
and wept passionately. He wept for the love his mother who passed away at a
younger age of 106 had for him. The book of John
Chapter 35 verse 11
said ‘Jesus Wept’. But at Iyah-Gbedde,
‘The
General Wept’
. His emotional outburst drew stronger emotions from other
family members present at the occasion. It was such a moving moment that can
only happen for the sake of a kind loving mother. Analysts at the event
believed that even though the General is a trained military officer who is expected
to always show bravery, his decision to shed deep emotional tears for his mum
must have come out of a profound and undiluted love and respect he shares with
a woman who did everything for him to live a happy life.

 Kogi Governor, Yayah Bello pays condolence
visit
It was just
immediately, the General and his conglomerate of friends and well-wishers were
leaving his mother’s grave after burying her that a message came from the
Governor of Kogi State, His Excellency Yayah Bello. The Governor who was
said to be out of the country at the time of the funeral sent in his Deputy who
visited the General with a condolence letter. General Jemibewon
received Dr. Simon Achuba inside his living room at his Iyah-Gbedde country home.
It was such a rare gesture as Mr. Achuba signed the family’s
condolence register and delivered the Governor’s message to the General. Dr.
Achuba
spent 25 minutes with General David Medayese Jemibewon
whom he described as ‘a rare statesman’ during the visit.

Iyah Gbedde with wife
Another big
dignitary who stormed Iyah-Gbedde for General David Jemibewon’s
mother’s funeral is Ex-Ekiti State
Governor, Engineer Segun Oni. Engineer Segun Oni who is presently the
Vice Chairman of the ruling All
Progressive Congress
(APC) party for South West Nigeria stormed the venue
with his pretty wife and former first lady of Ekiti State Madam Olukemi Adetola Oni
(Nee Ogunsiji). It will be recalled that Engineer Oni in company with his
Predecessors, Otunba Niyi Adebayo and Dr. Kayode Fayemi and
present Governor Ayo Fayose stormed Orin Ekiti last August for the
funeral of General Jemibewon’s father-in-law, Chief JB Ajayi.
Engineer
Oni
was escorted to the event by his Chief of Staff, Barrister
Segun
Ilori
. They attended the Post burial service by The Apostolic Church and the reception at Jemibewon International Academy Compound, Iyah-Gbedde.

Mama’s Last appearance before her children
Ex- President Obasanjo sent aide
The
friendship between General Olusegun Obasanjo and General David Jemibewon
dates back to the mid 1970s when Jemibewon served under Olusegun
Obasanjo’s
regime as Governor of the Old Western Region. Obasanjo had fired Navy
Commodore Akin Aduwo
whom he inherited from the aborted regime of late General
Murthala Mohammed
after serving just for 30 days. He installed Jemibewon
and when Oyo state was created out of Western region in 1977, Obasanjo
made Jemibewon
to retain his capital, Ibadan as Governor of the newly
created Oyo State. When late General Abacha locked up Obasanjo
over a phantom coup in 1995, General Jemibewon was one of the
prominent voices who called for the release of General Obasanjo. Hence
in 1999, when Obasanjo became civilian President, he made Jemibewon
his Police Affairs Minister. It was rumored that General Obasanjo wanted
to come to Iyah-Gbedde but for an international assignment that stole his
presence off Nigeria. He sent Chief Tunde Olusunle to represent
him. Chief
Olusunle
 an aide to the
ex-President was at the event with another eminent Nigerian, Chief
Femi Ajisafe
, the General Manager, Research, Planning and Environment, National Inland Waterways Authority

Meet 4 Senior Citizens who shocked
General David Jemibewon
Some four
old Senior Citizens really shocked General David Jemibewon with their
presence at his mother’s funeral at Iyah-Gbedde. They are Chief
Diti Oyekanmi
, an Oshogbo
Prince and junior brother of the present Ataoja
of Oshogbo Kongdom
who is in his 80s. Chief Diti Oyekanmi was one of General
David Jemibewon’s
Commissioners when he served as Governor of the Old
Western States. The elder statesman who stormed Iyah-Gbedde on Friday
August 5 nearly made the General shed tears as the man said he only heard of General
Jemibewon’s
mother’s death in the papers and came to console him. The
second senior citizen who stormed Iyah-Gbedde without being invited is
Chief
SPA Ajibade
who was General David Jemibewon’s Attorney
General when he was Governor of Old Western Region. The Ekiti State born Ajibade who is also in his 80s also
came to honor Jemibewon based on long time friendship. Alhaji M.A. Adetunji is
the first man General Jemibewon spoke to the day he resumed work as Governor
of Western Region. Their friendship is more than four decades. The Ibadan born Adetunji in his late 70s
also stormed Iyah Gbedde for Jemibewon without an invitation
card. And who again? Chief Emiola Adesina from Agodi GRA, Ibadan. He is a famous School proprietor in Oyo State. He was General
David Jemibewon’s
Director of Sports during his days as Governor of
Western Region. He is in his late 80s. All these four Citizens made the General
to nearly shed tears as he couldn’t imagine why such elderly men could honor
him despite the condition of the roads in Nigeria. They came from Ekiti, Oshogbo and Ibadan and
they have all worked or befriend him during his early career.

How Gen. Jemibewon stopped his Law
teacher from attending
Not many
people know that immediate past Deputy Governor of Delta State (South-South
Nigeria), Professor Amos Utuama is a former law lecturer to General
David Jemibewon
while he was studying law at University of Lagos
(UNILAG) couple of years back. However, we feel free to tell you for free that
the ex-Deputy Governor taught the General Law at UNILAG before providence made
him go into politics and became a Deputy Governor of his state. Very close
sources to the General said the Prof
had wanted to come and called the General, informing him of his challenges of
attending the funeral of a late statesman and Delta’s first civilian Governor, Senator
Felix Ibru
which took place between Tuesday August 2 and Wednesday
August 3 in Asaba the capital of the
state. But seeing that the elderly Utuama might over work himself and
lose his necessary energy, the General was said to have told Utuama
not to bother coming around but send in a condolence letter that will be
published in the event brochure which Utuama gladly did.

A crowd of symphatizers came to bade Mama farewell at her final resting place
Why Chief Edwin Clarke couldn’t make
the event
One other
top Nigerian who is very close to General David Jemibewon from the
other divide is Chief Edwin Kiagbode Clarke.  Apart from the fact that both Edwin Clarke and
General David Jemibewon are board members of the People’s Democratic Party
(PDP), the General is also a prominent member of Chief Edwin Clarke’s foundation.
The Delta State elder statesman was said to have equally planned to storm Iyah-Gbedde but for a little health
challenge that warranted his exit out of town. However, Chief Clarke sent in a
team of his Edwin Clarke Foundation led by one Chief
Mac Emokpare
. The elderly Chief Mac Emokpare who was dressed
in Niger-Delta native attire gave the General Chief Clarke’s condolence letter.

standards. Peter Ilesanmi Garba won award for best aide that comported himself
well.

a long while. However, his pretty wife, Princess Nneka Ijaola showed up at Iyah-Gbedde, Kogi State for the
celebration of General David Jemibewon’s mother. She is said to
be a very close friend of Chief (Mrs.) Dupe Jemibewon. Their
friendship is almost two decades. The very pretty Princess Nneka
who now shuttles between Abuja and Lagos was the cynosure of
all eyes at the event as her beauty radiates and glows. She was equally at Orin-Ekiti last year for Chief
(Mrs.) Dupe Jemibewon’s

Apart from
the security aspect which was highly cordinated by a contigent of military
boys, the police and the Civil Defence Corps, the Reception event for Mama
witnessed lots of activities coutesy of several professionals from all walks of

International Academy
. The Canopies 
were divided into 3 stages, one for the VVIPs, the second for the VIPs
