It is only true of True Leaders:
Victories are not born on the field; You create them during practice.
Governor Seyi Makinde secured the second highest number of votes ever recorded in the history of elections in Ọ̀yọ́ state. A victory more for the people who broke all barriers, of strangulation, of political occultism.
It was a Battle.
And with this victory, a whole lot of expectations…
For Governor Seyi Makinde, to aim at meeting the people’s expectations, is not enough, he knew he must hit!
So he hit the ground running.
In governance, it is important to not mistake activity for achievement. Very important. There will be a whole lot of seeming activity by those with a not to clear mission. But to those infused with a vision, it is achievement, rather than activity. And so it has been with Governor Seyi Makinde in his first 100 days in office.
He started by doing only the things that are necessary —paying salaries on the 25th day of every month, pensions inclusive. Then, he started doing what is possible — meticulously appointing clear-headed purpose-filled egg-heads into offices and suddenly he and his team are doing the Impossible!
A man of few words…Relaxe, at peace with himself, Confident, Emotionally neutral, smiling, and free-floating – these are the keys to his successful performance in almost everything he has touched in his very refreshing 100 days in office.
I’ve always known, that Engineer Seyi Makinde is Determined, hardworking.
I have also come to believe that Governor Seyi Makinde will put in the work, replicate his great successes in his private business and the results will come to the fore in Ọ̀yọ́ state.
He does not do things half-heartedly, a habit. Because he does not do things half-heartedly, the result is always going to be what the while country has come to see in him.
The burden people don’t see is the task on Governor Seyi Makinde to berth a New South West…On this, I’ll wait another hundred days for a treatise on this to be written.Mogaji Gboyega Adejumo writes from Ibadan
For now, let us all enjoy his Talent.
Talent undoubtedly wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins Championships…
And here’s to a Champion in his first 100 days… 🥂!
