The royal fathers warmly received Hon. Akinyemi, expressing their pleasure at his visit. The discussions held were deeply rooted in the shared commitment to the welfare of the Agege Kingdom’s indigenes. Hon. Akinyemi articulated his belief that true progress for the Agege community can only be achieved through leadership that is inherently connected to its people.

Their advice was clear and resonant: to continue his steadfast advocacy for justice and equity for the Agege indigenes. They highlighted the critical importance of ensuring that the dividends of democracy are fully realized at the grassroots level, particularly if Hon. Akinyemi were to be elected to public office.

The royal fathers’ endorsement was not merely a ceremonial gesture; it was a profound acknowledgment of Hon. Akinyemi’s dedication and service to the Agege Kingdom. Their unified voice underscored the importance of his mission and the potential impact of his leadership.

Hon. Akinyemi, in turn, expressed his deep gratitude for the royal blessings and guidance. He reaffirmed his commitment to the principles of good governance, community support, and justice.
