…Straight From His Heart
Below are some of the sincere comments, opinions and submissions which I made on different occasions and on different platforms in recent times. They reveal me, inside out:
“I believe in wealth creation and equitable distribution; consistent hard work and mental vigour. My mental switch is always in the winner’s mode”.
“I love education. I am well exposed and well trained. So, I will say that my experience and overall profile have prepared me for any assignment; on a regular basis, I get invited to boards of value-adding companies all over the world. I am always ready to use my professional, behavioural and technical competencies to positively impact people and situations”.
“My vision is for a better, newer, modern and industrialised Osun State; a vision to offer leadership that creates transformational value; this is achievable, and efforts must be put in place to bring it to reality”.
“We have unique skills in Osun State to enable us develop and grow our economy. Our assets are for productive growth and not for self-serving interests”.
“We cannot continue to be cynical about progress. We cannot continue to live with assumptions. We will not allow self-serving individuals to keep their power and keep their privileges. We must stand up, get connected and together keep charlatans off. Let us all unequivocally say NO to money mongers. We cannot continue to shield those who have nothing to offer”.
“Let us join hands and go for values and priorities. You must make a choice for your life, family and community. We must reverse the trend of ‘one step forward and two steps backwards’”.
“I have a game-changing profile as a well-tested entrepreneur that always achieves beneficial results. I pioneered a Proudly Nigerian conglomerate that is now in the driver’s seat of value-adding macro-economic activities in insurance, banking, real estate, transportation, agriculture, leasing and manufacturing”.
“I possess the qualities and experience required to harness the vast resources in Osun State for productive and developmental purposes. I understand the needs of our State”.
“I will describe myself as an itinerary venturer; a person who is always looking for opportunities to create and deliver value. I am an entrepreneur. I am a resilient venturer. I venture into a lot of things and by the grace of God, I deliver and effectively achieve results”.
“Riches do not fascinate me. I believe in wealth creation, consistent hardwork and mental vigour. I strive always to generate and fast track growth and development. I strive to WIN always and be responsible for the well-being and growth of people under all circumstances”.
“In everything I do, the ultimate goal is to deliver value with my abilities, knowledge and skills”.
“I promise in the name of the Most High God to use my talents, expertise, experience, exposure, global network, etc, to develop the much-needed values to adequately meet the needs of the great people of Osun State”.
“I personally don’t know why the federal government cannot make primary education compulsory, especially at this time. It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg; even if it is Koranic education, at least, give education to pur people. If you educate the people, then you have freed their minds”.
“Nigeria was known at a point for agricultural output and it was the only sustenance for the economy. Why don’t we go back into that to ensure that in the area of the productive sector, agriculture is number one? “
“The youths of this country can change the leadership of this country; let them come together and form a political party; they have the population”
“I support the idea of regionalization…States should manage their resources to be viable”
“I am a person who is always looking for opportunities to create and deliver value”.
I am an experienced farmer who fully understands and appreciates the potential of AGRICULTURE to generate prosperity and enhanced well-being for the teeming population of our dear Osun State. I will fully tap into this sector to provide beneficial employment as well as distinctly modernize the economy of Osun State through the establishment of optimally value-delivering agro-allied industries.
“By the grace of God, I started Mutual Benefits at the age of 31 and with Mutual Benefits, you can see how we have created wealth not only for ourselves but for others. I have given an example of how we have taken over 5000 graduates off the streets and the 5000 are just those who are working directly with us. They, too, have people working under them. So we have created wealth across the board. I am happy I am doing that. That is just about me, it is about taking others, showing them the way, giving them the way and leading them in the way”.
