“Evidently, as a former Secretary to State Government (SSG), former Attorney General, former Commissioner, Works, Lands and Housing, Minority Leader in the State House of Assembly, I have not failed.

“Also as National Examinations Council Board Chairman, pioneer APC State Chairman, and currently National Vice Chairman, South-West, I have not let you down,” he said.

Kekemeke, who said he was better equipped than he was four years ago, declared that he would make the government “seeable, touchable and feelable”, so that the pain of one would be the pain of all.

“The state cannot afford to amuse herself with bare pettiness, low sentiment and prejudices that have rudely arrested growth and development.

“Ondo State needs leadership not only for a segment of the state, but for the whole state.”
