Adebayo Laments Lack Of Visionary Leaders In Yorubaland
« on: March 31, 2008, 08:49:49 AM »
A former Minister of Communications, Chief Cornelius Adebayo, has deplored the dearth of visionary leaders in Yorubaland.

He this this observation in Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State on Friday.

He was speaking during a lecture he delivered during the first memorial lecture in honour of a former governor of Ondo State, late Chief Adebayo Adefarati.

He said that the Yoruba nation was yet to produce another visionary leader since the death of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo in 1987, “who is held in high esteem even in death.”

The former minister noted that the Yoruba race, which was once regarded as the pacesetters in the nation’s polity, had lost its pace, focus and direction.

According to him, Awolowo left a legacy that had continued to be a reference point among Nigerian politicians.

He is talking about himself not the yorubas as a whole. Did he gave Tinubu, Ajimobi, Arigbesola, Ladoja etc support?

He need to rephrase his words to mean "lack of supports of visionary leaders in yorubaland."
