A critical and clinical appraisal of the life and times of Dr. Mimiko between 1983 and now, it is crystal clear that the most visible character trait and his no 1 “stock-in-trade” is BACK STABBING and BETRAYAL OF HIS BENEFACTORS”
Deceptive leaders like Mimiko will always believe that their private imperfections or inadequacies won’t have public consequences, but they always do. Leaders cannot escape who they truly are and what they do in the dark comes out in the light. If what they do is good, it builds characters in the leader and trust in the people, but if it is bad then it undermines everything they do until there’s no solid ground left for them to stand on.
According to Soren Kierkegaard “Life can only be understood backwards but it has to be lived forwards”. Consequently, the hour has come for us as believers in the beauty of our dreams and the enviable future of Ondo State to say that the sunshine state has today been taken out of the woods, and going by the clearly defined policy thrusts on human and infrastructural development by Dr. Agagu Led team, it is clear that we have left Egypt and we are journey-bound to our promised land.
While preparing and rehearsing for our eventual departure for the promised land, very many were tried and tested but the only one that has been able to affect our totality in an unusual style is Dr. Agagu. This feat is so precious that we will legitimately resist every attempt at loosing our pearls to the swine’s. Now that we know better, we will rebuff every move especially by a self-acclaimed leader whose style and fashion is consistently devoid of:
In the light of the foregoing the need to let the good people of Ondo State know or notice the subtle but dangerous character traits of Dr. Mimiko that will stand between him and the possibility of ever ruling or governing our beloved “Sunshine State”.
The following factors are clear signs that the he cannot and will not rule
TEN (10) GOOD REASONS HE MAY NEVER BECOME THE GOVERNOR OF
(1) The blind Ambition of becoming the governor of
(2) Ego-of-believing that “he is always the better man.
(3) Penchantly and passionately disloyal to his bosses/benefactors.
(4) Consistently daring and destructive.
(5) A pathological liar and a master in the art of deception
(6) Believes he is smarter than the other person
(7) Has traded his conscience for a heart of stone.
(8) His ambition is premised in “let the end justify the means”
(9) Tolerantly intolerant.
(10) May have strategy but lacks character
If we open a conflict between the present and past, we may lose the future. Now is the time for us to stand tall in the beauty of who we are, hold tightly to the wisdom of our fathers, dream the big dreams of a righteous Nigeria and make ourselves and our generation a solemn promise” we will be silent no more.
To fold our arms and sidon-look” is to say the least an acceptance of administering a poisonous narcotic into our psyche and entire body system. Never in our lives and in the history of our beloved state will a “desperado” like “Iroko” become the accounting and chief security officer of a materially and humanly endowed state like ours.
Enough of these political scheming, enough of these craftiness, e – n – o – u – g – h of these willful and calculated deceptions of the good people of Ondo State and the nation at large.
