Gov Kayode Fayemi
KUDOS TO YOU, THIS TIME AROUND
While I celebrated your swearing in, during your first term, I became one of your hottest critics, up to the end of that term and, in fact, I wasn’t surprised that you were defeated-any other candidate would have, easily, done that. I, alongside with many, celebrated your defeat. During the last election, the least I expected was your victory-if I had come home, I wouldn’t have voted for you-that was the level of my frustration at your governance in the first term. Nonetheless, you were declared winner.
Soon after you resumed, this time, a close friend of mine, a fellow Panupo forumite, called me to tell me that you are, now, in charge and you are set to go, he however warned that we thread cautiously. About five weeks ago, I called the person living in my house, in Ado and he told me that he made fruitless efforts to reach me on phone, while I was outside. He wanted to inform me that government was digging the frontage of my house. Frightened, I, quickly, asked: why?-the state government is digging everywhere, trying to provide water, everywhere, he replied.
Just, today, again, the secretary of my neighborhood landlord association called to let me know that government is energizing our transformer. He thought my long absence from home has to do with the erratic power supply-it’s not, am fortified, power-wise, anytime am around.
I am, particularly, excited at the comments of people-(the general level of insecurity won’t encourage frequent use of roads, for me). From this it ‘d be clear to all, that criticizing isn’t, always, about political-prejudice-we are not all politicians. The Lagos State Revenue advertising lady would say: who no like beta thing.
I have included this in the agenda of the next joint meeting of the Congress of Ekiti Natives and the Ekiti Aborigines, holding first week in December.
We are, fully, with you, in our prayers and look forward to you taking us to the promised land, in which life is abundant and criminality is laid to rest. Our state deserves the best and shouldn’t be last, as it is, now.
