A former commissioner for regional Integration in Osun State, Hon. Bola Ilori has taken to Facebook to appreciate Nigerians for their care, love and prayer for him when he had a serious accident at Idoani on the boundary between Ondo and Kogi States.
In the Facebbok post which ALSC sighted, he specifically commended the Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for the demonstration of love beyond political differences, noting that his survivorship was a grace of God.
“My official trip in the last week of June 2020 as a representation at the funeral of late Chief Adewale Omojuwa turned out to be a memorable one. I was in Akure but the event was postponed because of the death of the immediate younger brother of the deceased on the week of the burial – making it a double for the family.
” On my way back to Abuja precisely at Idoani on the boundary between ONDO and KOGI was where a fully loaded Dangote Truck lost its brake and horn on a slope, and ran into our Hilux from behind. I blanked out immediately only to regain consciousness later at the hospital. Everyone in the truck sustained varying degrees of injury.
”I must create a special space to express my profound appreciation to the Governor of Ondo State Arákùnrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu Aketi for his care during the incident. The fact that I and the Governor of Ondo state were not the best of friends is a national knowledge, however it is times like this that you differentiate between opponents and enemies.
The Governor demonstrated that we were opponents not enemies. I salute you sir and I must say yes, Your Excellency, you earned my respect going forward,” he wrote
