I join millions of followers and admirers to thank God for your exemplary life, and celebrate you on your 65th birthday. I celebrate you today as always, and thank God for how far He has used you for the good of our darling State; especially how God used you to break the jinx of second term for Ondo North. I am proud and honoured to be part of your success story.

You are a golden fish that does not have a hidden place. You won your second term and did the seeming impossible because of your developmental drive. The same strive earned you the vanguard Governor of the year. The award is not only well deserved but it is timely and another testimony to the fact that Ondo people were right to have voted you for the second term.

Your leadership and managerial acumen are worthy of emulation, and I am convinced that things can only get better for our dear State under your leadership. We are not in the best time economically at the moment but your quest to leave the State better than you met her is exciting. Tough time does not last but tough people do. May God continue to strengthen you to lead us right against all odds. You have given me reasons to celebrate and thank God for blessing Ondo State with you at this point in time. May your likes never scarce in our land.

I wish you the best of what your new year can offer. May the years ahead be more blissful in good health and unspeakable joy. Happy birthday and many happy returns to Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, the People’s Governor, Mr. talk and do.

Signed,

Rt. Hon. Victor Olabimtan
