He said; “No matter how tick a cloud is, there will always be sunshine at the end.”
Oni, in his New Year message to the people of the State signed by his Media Aide, Mr. Lere Olayinka, said the people's goodwill and support towards him in the year 2011 has further reinforced his commitment to serving the State wholeheartedly and making life more meaningful for the downtrodden.
“I therefore wish to congratulate the entire people of Ekiti State for this brand new year that God has made possible for us to see.
“I also wish to urge our people, especially supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to remain calm, focussed and keep hope alive in the New Year, because like I said the day we were removed from office, the judgment of posterity is the most important judgment and it is already manifesting,” Oni said.
