“Former governor Akala is my father, brother and leader in Ogbomoso land. He was a good man. He loves Ogbomosoland. His death still remains a ride shock to me and the entire people of Ogbomosoland. He loved us and we loved him also.
“Now, he is no more but his legacies lives on. On behalf of the entire people of Ogbomosoland, we are saying a very big thank you to the governor of the state, Engr. Seyi Makinde for his political maturity. The governor, upon hearing the news terminated the state event to honor our son, brother and leader.

W are now using this medium to warn people making unnecessary criticism over the death of Soun of Ogbomoso to desist from such unreasonable assertion to avoid the wrath of God,” he said.
