“Where there is peace, you don’t need a peacemaker so you don’t create more problems. The Presidential reconciliation committee is not needed here in Ondo State; there is peace in Ondo APC.”

“On local government autonomy, I campaigned and I have not forgotten what I said about local government autonomy; there was not a time that I spoke about supporting local government autonomy. I am a lawyer and I know what is called federating units of a federal government. Nigeria cannot be the only place where we would bastardise the institutions.
