Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko on Friday, February 20, 2015 poured scorn on the mantra of change being mouthed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) while describing President Goodluck Jonathan as a true progressives.

He made posited the stance while inaugurating a primary school in Akure, the Ogun State capital as part of activities marking his 6th year in office, revealing that President Jonathan inspires him.

Whilst stating that President Jonathan’s construction of 125 Almajiri schools in the North was the inspiration behind his establishment of mega schools in Ondo State, Governor Mimiko questioned the character and sincerity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari who claimed to be poor when he was had contested to be president four times.

He also hailed President Jonathan for showing that he had shown he had the interest of the country in mind unlike “those who are after power to shore up their investment base.”

He said:

The mega school concept of our government is about re-engineering education in the state with emphasis on Information and Communications Technology. It is an initiative which is about polity, equity and real progressivism, which is beyond the suffocating propaganda being dished out by agents of nebulous change in the country.

The same progressivism drive is behind the decision of President Jonathan’s establishment of Almajiri schools in the North. What is being experienced in the state is the real change and just like what President Jonathan is doing at the federal level.

This is different from those who lack integrity but (are) calling for change which they can’t give. You have contested presidential election four times and you call yourself a poor man; what kind of lie is that? Is that what will bring change?
