Jan 6, 2024

 

The Founder of Elizade University, Chief Michael Ade. Ojo has commiserated with the government and people of Ondo State and particularly the immediate family of the late Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, CON, whose unfortunate death occurred on 27th December, 2023.

Chief Ade. Ojo described the death of the erstwhile Governor as a big loss not only to Ondo State and South West Nigeria but to the entire nation. He said he was a fearless and courageous leader who always stood to defend a just cause even at the face of threat to his own personal ambition.

In a condolence message, he described the late Governor as a dogged fighter who would never be cowed by the dictates of political leanings or patronage, pointing out that he was a believer in the doctrine of fairness and equity.

Chief Ade. Ojo said history will not forget the late Governor in a hurry for serving as a rallying force and providing the leadership for South West, Nigeria when the region was almost becoming a sheep without shepherd in the face of hostilities. He also noted his achievements in infrastructural and socio-economic development of Ondo State.

The Founder of Elizade University also congratulated Governor Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa on his assumption of office, praying that God will grant him the divine wisdom and knowledge needed to pilot the affairs of the State.

He noted that the year 2024 will indeed be busily astir in Ondo State, given the political bustle and high level politicking that will naturally rent the air being an electioneering year as well as the need to cater for the yearnings and aspirations of the people in general and the toiling masses in particular.

He implored Governor Aiyedatiwa to bring in his combination of wealth of experience, both in the private and public sectors to navigate the terrain, to deliver the much needed dividend of democracy to the people of Ondo State.
Chief Ade. Ojo called for oneness of purpose among the political elites to take Ondo State to lofty heights.
