Mato, has he is popularly called, praised Governor Akeredolu’s life accomplishments and achievements as leader of his People, particularly in the areas of peace and security, massive infrastructures and human capital development.

“This award is a testament to our long-held opinion that, as governor of Ondo State, you have acquitted yourself as a genuine development-centric leader, whose ideals transcend the prosaic lines of ethnicity and nasty politics.
“I congratulate Your Excellency, on this achievement, I must caution you that maintaining the high development standard that you have established in the state would need commitment from you and your team.
“On behalf of my immediate family, my political team and entire people of Ondo South Senatorial District, we wish you more wisdom, knowledge and understanding to pilot affairs of our Sunshine State to the state of Eldorado in the comity of States in Nigeria.”
