“It is without doubt that Tayo remains an appreciable figure in our dear State. His palpable passion for the State is incurable even as he remains one worthy son we should all be proud of in Ondo State.

“Between Tayo and I, there have been two keenly contested governorship elections which to the Glory of God, have both come my way. In spite of this, our friendship, brotherliness and professional bonds have remained strong and largely unaffected.

“In all these, our shared commonality and virtues have played a big role. But above all, Tayo’s legendary humility deserves a huge commendation.

“As Tayo clocks 60, it is our profound prayer for God to keep him in good, sound health and increased wisdom to achieve his heart desires. On behalf of my Adorable Betty and the good people of Ondo State, I congratulate my dear brother, learned friend and worthy compatriot.

“CONGRATULATIONS. All honour, glory and adoration belong to the Lord for seeing you to this enviable age. Asodunmodun, àsosùmòsù, igba odun odun kan. Age gracefully!”.
