The Ondo State Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko has been commended by two prominent Yoruba leaders, Gen. Alani Akinrinade (rtd), former Chief of Defence Staff and NADECO chieftain and Otunba Gani Adams, National Coordinator of Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) for the positive impact his government has made on the people, even as the citizens have been charged not to allow outsiders infiltrate the state’s polity.
They gave the commendation when they visited the Governor at the Governor’s House.
Akinrinade who said he visited the Governor to commend him on his third anniversary celebration said he has heard and confirmed about Governor Mimiko’s performance in the last three years.
He said Mimiko has brought a lot of improvement and development to the entire state.
“From the little i saw in the city of Akure, i can see a lot of improvement , a lot of work have been done, am quite impressed with what i saw out there.
“People said he has done very well, that is what i hear from the  people and i see also a lot of projects  which i thought are very reasonable for the Yoruba people” Akinrinade said, even as he charged the Governor to keep working like no man’s business because that is what is required in Yoruba land presently.
Akinriade said Mimiko is “a young man with the energy and all the ability to work. So he has no excuse not to work, my advice to him is to continue   to work for the state.”
The National Coordinator of OPC, Otunba Gani Adams said the Mega Primary Schools built across Ondo State   are first in Africa coupled with the Markets built across the state.
“I have been to many African countries and i haven’t seen school like these. From my movement across the state, i saw the markets, the Mechanic Village and  i have to commend the governor  for the initiative and charge him to do more because  if something like these can happen  for a period of three years, i know Ondo State will be one of the best in Nigeria at the end ” Adams said.
Speaking on the coming gubernatorial election in the state, the OPC leader charged the people to eschew violence and not allow any external infiltration into the state’s polity declaring that the state is known to be number one in terms of intelligence and morals.
Gani Adams further advised the people to ensure that the right person is elected into office as governor by playing the politics of justice.
