  • Mr. Governor, remember your wife and children did not participate in this campaign that brought you in for this second term.

    Ensure you don't insult the sensibilities of Ondo state people by bringing your wife people we mean Igbo people into the running's of Ondo state government or else we will send God of thunder to punish you.

    We do not want further Igbo people in our government any more as there is no single Ondo state indegine that is engaged in the business of any Igbo speaking state.
