No wonder, the administration he served meritoriously under was able to place the state on the positive trajectory of socio-economic and political growth.

He strongly frowns at laxity, dishonesty and lacklustre in public office because he believes in merit, capacity and Integrity as a panacea to genuine leadership that will deliver good governance as desired. He was a community leader, peacemaker, disciplinarian and a father to all,” he said.

“His belief and support for the Governor Yahaya Bello-led new direction administration is staunch and immeasurable as massively demonstrated before, during and even after the last gubernatorial election in the state,” Asiwaju posited.
