I find it deserving and so I’m less taken aback that our father, the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, was conferred and installed as a ruler in Ondo State.
This is because nothing is short of deserving for someone who hasn’t just been an exemplary leader but one who stirs beyond the conservative tags of leadership to represent everywhere and everything he belongs to; it is undebatable that Governor Seyi Makinde represents everything the Yoruba race stands for and yet remains committed to national duties beyond racial affiliations. He has several times taken action against all odds to demonstrate impactful leadership.
Governor Seyi Makinde has not only risked his good standing with people, he has risked his office and position several times to ensure inclusion across all boards; gender, age, religion, politics, race and national duties. He is obviously a pacesetter in purposely governance.
He has in this passion for good governance fought valiantly against norms and popular culture to ensure a progressive and people centered governance.
He is therefore indeed worthy as the Jagunmolu of Ondo Kingdom as he has been conferred by the paramount traditional ruler of Ondo Kingdom, the Osemawa, Oba(Dr.) Victor Adesimbo.
I therefore congratulate His Excellency, Engr. Seyi Makinde on this feat and pray that he receives help of the almighty to remain strong and valiant on this unpopular path of leadership he has chosen. I pray that this new feat will shower more blessings of the almighty on the people’s Governor.
Hon.(Dr.) Salami Oladeji DIKKO
