He is popularly known as Baba Eto, and he is indeed a master planner, especially when it comes to politics, Christendom and society in general.

Cardinal James Odumbaku can never be wished away in the scheme of things, Lagos State in general, as he has been there done that. Since Dr James Omolaja Odunmbaku, one of the strongmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC), particularly in Lagos State began publicly labouring for the well-being of Lagosians and the prosperity of Lagos State, folks have found one way or another to eulogize him. But those that know that Cardinal Odunmbaku has been in the thick of things long before the Fourth Republic heralded him as one of the most prestigious political figures in the country. As the man prepares to clock 75, top shots of the Nigerian society are already holding meetings to see his name written across the sky. August 3, 2021, is going to be one of those days in Lagos history where ink pots dry out. Cardinal (Dr.) James Omolaja Odunmbaku’s 75th birthday, if reports are to be believed, certain super political figures will be leaving their self-imposed seclusion ahead of the 2023 presidential election to pay homage to the clergyman who reigns supreme in political circles and the Celestial Church of Christ family.
