60th Independence anniversary: Let’s learn from past mistakes, Jegede enjoins Nigerians

Mr. Jegede, SAN.

By Editor.

One of the major contenders of the Ondo State governorship election on October 10, 2020, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), has rejoiced with Nigerians on the occasion of the country’s 60th Independence anniversary, but urged them to learn the mistakes of the past years in order to build the future they all desire.

Jegede in a statement in Akure, said while the country had passed through various trying periods in its nationhood, it was expedient that its leaders and people learn from past mistakes and work for a better society.

“We have had our hiccups and terrible moments as a nation; but the truth is that, there is room for improvement, leveraging on our great human and material resources.

“Rather than lose hope and sulk over a pitfall, the reasonable thing is to rise, assess the cause of such a fall and then forge ahead with all precautionary measures.

“These appeals to our leaders, especially the political leaders, are to display true leadership in managing the resources of the country, so as to retain the confidence of the people who look up to them for direction,” Jegede enjoined.

The governorship candidate particularly seized the occasion to call on all stakeholders in the coming gubernatorial election in Ondo State, to display patroitism by exhibiting decorum and fairness in the electioneering process.

“We all must ensure that the October 10 governorship election is devoid of any form of disruption, and that we exhibit decorum and fairness, by allowing the will of the people to prevail, through the ballot,” he appealed.


The rule of life is to be found within yourself,

Ask yourself constantly, “What is the right thing to do?”

Beware of ever doing that which you’re likely, sooner or later, to repent of having done.

It is better to live in peace than in bitterness and strife…

The superior man does not wrangle. He is sociable but not clannish and sets a good example to his neighbours.
