“Someone once told me that if your dreams do not scare you, then it’s not worth exploring. Yes, it is daunting and almost scary without the usual safety net, but this is one mandate that we all must undertake with clear conviction and determination to succeed. As l call on you once again, I must say that what kept me going in the last three years was your love, prayers, encouragement, and sacrifices”, Akinlade said

“I assured them of my cooperation in the process and received the same courtesy. True vision and desire to serve should be selfless, devoid of acrimony and divisions. We are people destined for greatness, thus, this is the time to reset our focus and reposition the future of our dear state as envisioned by our forebears.”
