The tale of an unending history knitted in love and harmony began with the meeting of Engr. Ezekiel Ayodele Falola and Tpl. James Adeyeye Osatuyi on the 18th of October 1975 at the Schools Board, Ilaro where they collected their letters of appointment and were both posted to Alamuwa Grammar School Ado Odo in Ado Odo Ota LGA of Ogun State, little did they know that their friendship was the birth of a historical union now taking is space in the world list of foundations that seek to contribute to the environment it subsist.


On resumption as Class Teachers, they were teaching Mathematics, Agric and General Science.

Though their individual dormitory where far apart, the tide and bond of their friendship wax stronger each day that rolls by.


As destiny keeps smiling on their friendship they both applied and got admission to the then Kwara State College of Technology, Ilorin (now Kwara State Polytechnic) and both studied Town and Regional Planning.

On graduation and after National Youth Service, they got employed into the Lagos State Civil Service in  July 1981 and another phase of life soon emerged.


They moved into a 3- bedroom apartment on 1st April 1982 at 4, Ponle Street, Alimosho area of Lagos.

After their marriages in 1984, they were still leaving together at 10, Ayo Alabi Street, Oke-Ira, Ogba; where Yewande Osatuyi Busari, Kunle Falola and Dapo Falola were born.


They finally moved to their own house at the then 38, Anu Oluwapo Street in Ijaiye Ojokoro in September 1989 and the first FALOSA baby (Damilola Oluwafemi now Damilola Fiberesima) was born into where we could now call the FALOSA's country home on the 25th November 1989.

The FALOSA Family was born to bring together all brothers and sisters, friends and relatives that stayed with Messrs Falola and Osatuyi since coming together from 1st April 1983 to date.
