Don’t succumb to negative forces, give Ondo state Developmental Road Map —former Defence Minister Kayode tells Aiyedatiwa

A former Minister of Defence; Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Prince Adetokunbo Kayode, SAN, has advised Ondo State Governor, Hon. Lucky Aiyedatiwa not to allow the trap of divisiveness, distraction and lack of focus which has been foisted on previous governors in the state by the usual and omnipresent negative forces of regression since 1999, to affect him in giving the state developmental road map.

In a Press Statement, Kayode, under Ondo state Stakeholders Forum, pointed out the need to develop the youths in the state.

Below is the full text of the statement;

ONDO STATE ROAD MAP TO DEVELOPMENT

A few weeks ago, I issued a sober congratulatory message to my brother and friend and APC leader, Gov. Lucky Aiyedatiwa. I exhorted him about avoiding and not being caught up in the trap of divisiveness, distraction and lack of focus which has been foisted on previous governors in our state by the usual and omnipresent negative forces of regression since 1999.

Please set up a small youthful team to plan for the development of Ondo state, now. Don’t wait till after the election. Don’t wait till you win. Of course, you will win.

Hangers-on, praise singers, boot-lickers, alagbaka-clowns, and fine Baras will shroud your horizon and not allow you to see the challenges facing the state and the great opportunities for the future.

We all know the usual forces in our state that really don’t care a hoot about the development of the state. But Ondo State remains bigger than every narrow individual ambition.And this happened to your predecessors notwithstanding their desire for the progress of thr state. We made this point earlier. And we make it again.

We urge the minor and relatively opposing political crowd to allow you to breathe. This is the time to stand for progress and development in Ondo state.

On your part please show audacity. Lead!. Plan to catch up and overtake. And thereafter you shall hand over to our children.
