The leadership of Ekiti Likeminds Group, has urged Governor Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji to evaluate the capacity of individuals before making cabinets appointments.
Likeminds Group, which said competency and quality leadership must be the yardstick, noted that Barrister Gbenga Ojo, a Chieftain of party from Ido/Osi Local Government Area, fits the profile for Disapora Aide appointments into the the State administration of Governor Oyebanji’s led administration.
Disclosing this in Ado-Ekiti, leaders of the group which include Damilola Oni said Barrister, Ojo is capable of transforming visions to reality, obstacles into innovations and separateness into solidarity.
Oni said: ” Barrister Ojo’s track record shows that he is abreast with the assignment ahead and he has a very good knowledge of the constitution in relation to how democratic leadership works in Disapora relations, having obtained masters in international law and international relations and democratic politics, hence he was tagged an Illustrious son of Ilogbo-Ekiti who contributed greatly to Governor Oyebanji’s emergence as Governor. He is a party faithful and loyalist to the core principles and ideology of progressive democracy.
Expressing optimism that Governor Oyebanji will grant their request, the group said Barrister Ojo has changed the lives of many in Ekiti State, mostly in Ido/Osi local government, emphasising that if the Governor carried out a survey on their claims, he would see that all they have said was true.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Secretary Tunji Olubunmi added that Ojo is a leader of high Repute , saying he is a nationalist, pragmatic leader who can promote and project the positive values of the State.
