Contributions while in service
During the struggle for conversion of Civil Defence from a voluntary organization into a full fledge paella-military, Chief Adetunji was the chairman of the committee entrusted to pursue the processes. He solely led the committee on finance sourcing towards the sustainability organization. He personally pursued and lobbied the sponsorship of the bill through the then Senate Chief whip, Senator Roland Owei from Edo State. He consistently sought the assistance of the Senator until the bill sailed through both in lower and upper chamber of the National Assembly after which it was finally signed and gazetted into law.
He is happily married with children
