Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka, humility personified.

Let me begin this piece by saying phrases like photochromic rigging, stomach infrastructure and other words were birthed before, during and after 2014 gubernatorial election just to discredit the landslide victory of the man some members of the elite in the state found difficult to cage politically.

Chief Ayodele Fayose who defeated the first Executive Governor of the state in 2003 and the immediate past governor in 2014 is not the one contesting in 2018, but despite this fact; the agitation of his enemies is that his loyal, humble and well- lettered deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka should not be allowed to succeed his boss.

Permit me to say that the thorny problem in our educational system makes some dumb ass politicians and blind political analysts see a thoroughbred professor as a stooge.

It is understood that there is nothing a desperate person cannot do to outsmart or paint his opponent in politics, but it is awkward seeing some people all in the name of political hatred to start degrading a man who has bagged the highest educational certificate.

It’s normal to experience and learn new styles during electioneering campaign but learning positive stuff during this period will do us good.

This is a season to learn from one another.

Prof. Eleka is a man of himself and a man of honour who will make Ekiti proud once more in education through his humility.

I am very sure that Ekiti will gain a lot by making a professor of Building Technology her governor.

The humble professor will revamp the economy of the state if elected.

Eleka as a pastor will ensure that he puts smiles on the faces of every citizen of the state.

Honestly, Ekiti needs a well bred and intelligent technocrat like humble Olusola Eleka to govern the state.

Our brothers should know by now that no professor in the world will not have a mind of his own, so the time to school some brothers in Ekiti State that a well – lettered man cannot be a stooge is now.
