Vision, when matched with courage, invariably reinforces the hallmark of great leadership. The will and determination to protect the interest of the people and echo the minds of the masses at all times create a distinctive path of freedom. It puts to rest the minds of the ordinary people while establishing the confidence that breeds hope needed for a stable society.
Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has remained unshaken on the side of truth and Justice. No matter whose ox is gored, he speaks his mind in defense of the people for whom he holds office in trust. He’s one voice that reverberates and shakes the whole of the country to her foundation. When he speaks, everyone listens, for his typical penchant for telling the truth.
His position on various national issues and unwavering stance on the security of his people continues to stand him out as a Governor with a difference. He has displayed uncommon commitment to issues affecting the people. Governor Akeredolu is indeed, a beacon of hope.
His exemplary courage, sincerity and candour have redefined governance and rebuilt trust despite the sundry challenges confronting the nation. He has laid the foundation for sustainable prosperity. No wonder he’s fondly called “Mr Talk and Do.”
Knowing that strong and capable leadership is an immeasurable asset to the people, Arakunrin Akeredolu has lived up to expectations. He has shown incurable commitment to the welfare of his people even when the stakes are high. From infrastructural development, quality healthcare delivery, quality education, Human Capital Development to the prioritization of workers welfare, Aketi has changed the narrative of governance for good.
Mr Governor sir, you have displayed authenticity, resilience; self-discipline and commitment to purpose in the service of the people. Even in spite of the huge deficit of courageous leadership in today’s society, you beam hope for the upcoming generation, and this sets you apart as a true leader of the people.
