Said he, “It is sad that today Nigerians are being fed with lies about what is happening in Ekiti. But the truth of the matter is that in Ekiti today, people are hungrier than they were before the coming of this administration. People if the state are currently in bondage. It is the wailings and cry of those innocent people that is motivating me to come into this project.

You can hardly see any federal presence in Ekiti today because of he attitude of the leadership in the state. The truth is that we need to engage the Federal Government, the National Assembly and so on more than we are doing now to bring development into the state” he said.
