Opinion: Governor Mimiko And The 2nd Term Imperatives In Ondo State

Governor Olusegun Mimiko
By Kayode Ajulo Esq

Opposition parties in Ondo State are at their superlative wit, this should be anticipated as people of the state are no push over when it comes to the matter that define their destinies, they are discerning, principle, logical, eagle eyed and mentally alert.

Whatever therefore, that is expected to make a meaningful mark in justifying the attack against the incumbent must then be well structured for overreaching effect.

I am not thus surprise with the irrational and defeatist argument of the opposition parties' supporters in Ondo state is that any student who repeats a class is a student who has failed!

I need to say and I must quickly state that I have an interest in that kind of class and failure as I pray to be in this class one day and ''failed'' so that I can repeat the class as Dr. Olusegun Mimiko would do going by the irrepressible testimonies.

It is therefore postulated that if Governor Fashola of Lagos is repeating a class, Gbenga Daniel could repeat a class in Ogun; if Peter Odili could repeat a class in Rivers; If Donald Duke could repeat a class in Cross River; if Bukola Saraki could repeat a class in Kwara; if Tinubu-former Governor of Lagos and national leader of ACN could repeat a class, If Segun Agagu could spend all he had to repeat a class in Ondo state and subsequently succeeded in robbing Mimiko at a 'gun-point' in 2007 before the court of law caught him red-handed and retrieved the stolen property to the rightful owner; if President Obasanjo could repeat a class in 2003 and still wanted to repeat it again in 2007 until the constitution said enough is enough; if governor Oshiomole of Edo can be repeating a class; if governor Obi of Anambra, the ones in Benue, Adamawa, Kaduna, Kano, Sokoto, Katshina and many other states of Nigeria could seek to repeat a class and many are still interested including the ones in Ekiti, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, in seeking to repeat a class, then Mimiko is not only right to seek to repeat this same class, he is eminently qualified to repeat the class, and I am sure he will repeat it in Jesus name. I sincerely pray to have my way too one day and very soon, in future I will be highly interested in entering this class and also to repeat it.

I am hopefully that the needful is done in Ondo State and Dr. Olusegun Mimiko is returned without much ado and waste of resources by the oppositions, it is certain that this is the only possibility in the circumstance as the ACN candidate, Chief Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, someone I hold in high esteemed is serially and severally ab initio disqualified to contest the election; despite the party leadership bold-face, ACN is currently in dilemma on how to resolve AKETI debacle, at the last check in INEC, the learned silk’s name and that of his unknown running mate are yet to be sent to the electoral agency.

It is also an open secret in state and to all PDP faithful that Olusola Oke's extant campaign project is nothing but a strategic jamboree, towards a covert end of getting ministerial appointment. Thereby, signing him off as unserious candidate. A rumour even went viral last week that he was seen at the SSS headquarters to attend a security screening exercise for new ministerial nominees.

Without much ado, while it is quite obvious where the tides would swing to, I sincerely wish that the opposition in Ondo State if there is any sincere one should run issues based campaign and put the incumbent on his toes to the more advantage of the people of my state in making Ondo State a better egalitarian society.
