A governorship aspirant in Oyo State for the 2019 election, Akinwale Omololu Laosun, has sympathized with Yinka Ayefele and the entire staff of Fresh FM over the Oyo State government demolition of the ‘Music House’, which houses Fresh FM.
Laosun in a press release signed and made available to journalists said that he was shocked and saddened by the demolition of a company that has contributed one way or the other to the growth and development of Oyo State.
“I’m shocked and saddened by the development which eventually led to the demolition of ‘Music House’. It’s very painful to see a company which has contributed to the growth and development of Oyo State and also employing many people to be treated this way. There could have been other decent ways to deal with the issue other than this demolition.”
Laosun added that when elected as the Governor of Oyo State in 2019; he will ensure that issues of this nature are properly addressed.
Laosun stated that by the special grace of God when elected in 2019; I’ll look into issues like this and find a way to resolve it amicably. Yinka Ayefele has assisted this government by providing employment to many people. We can now begin to imagine the number of people who would be deprived of their means of livelihood. When elected in 2019; my government will be a government with a human face.”
Laosun while sympathising with Ayefele said: “What defines our character is not our struggles but how well we meet them and rise up after getting knocked down. Faith will overcome fears, doubt and insecurities. Sometimes in life, we don’t recognize how loved and strong we actually are until we are faced with a great calamity in our life. This calamity we face today will help develop the strength and fortitude we need for tomorrow.”
“Losing everything we own is sad, but the things we own do not diminish who we are inside. Sometimes the worst situation brings out the best in us and others.”
