Ekiti Polity Update: A brief review by Barrister Akinbowale Omole (The 1st EKHA majority Leader)
There is no more political acrimony in my state again. The last election was conducted without the services of paid thugs or any armed men. No complain of rigging by anybody or any political party. No inciting statements or false alarm from any quarters. No more abuse of power or official recklessness. The security agencies practically had no work to do during elections. Government workers have also moved from despair and hopelessness to trust in the government. No noise on statutory allocation, budget support or Paris club. The media houses now operate within the law and no official lies and misinformation again. I can relate with my friends on the opposite side freely now without molestation as we are no more enemies again. My take, Government policies and programs may differ depending on the party at the helms of affairs but the peace of the state should not at anytime be compromised. I pray that no government goes below this standard again in the conducted of government business. Ekiti is gradually gaining back her lost place, our pride as a people is restored. No shame again.
