“If the people of Oyo state ask me to leave the office as governor today, I won’t hesitate to leave the office. Let me tell you here today. I don’t have a political father. It was God who made me governor and not human being. I fear only God and not any human. No matter how powerful a man is, I cannot fear him”, he emphasised
The Governor who pledged to support all the agenda of the PAN Yoruba Congress and development of Yoruba nation emphasised that he fears nobody except God, stressing that only God support him to become the Governor because he has no political God father.
“I contested election in 2007, 2011 and 2015 but failed and when it was time for God to make me a governor, he made me. If the people of the state decide that they don’t want me again, I will only take my bag and leave because I don’t have a pin in the office.”
