_All of us who are concerned for peace and triumph of reason and justice must be keenly aware how small an influence reason and honest good will exert upon events in the political field._
In time past many of our Okun politicians are not united due to superiority, ergo and inferiorities complex, they failed to come together for a common goal. *But let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future*.
The trio of *Rt. Hon. James Abioudun Faleke, Hon. (Chief) Elder Leke Abejide, Hon. (Chief) Mukadam Asiwaju Idris Asiru* are the true unifying factors that are ready and presently doing their best to change the political narrative of Okun land, these men are uncommon in the society.
It has never be like this in the time past in Okun land where a man that is loyal to a particular party will freely robbing mind with another party loyalist, except if there is an alignment of political interest.
I must commend this new set of digital politicians that we have in Okun land for casting down their ergo and unites for a sincere purpose, with this present unification *Okun will definitely triumph and move to a better and greater level.*
Politics play a large role in shaping society. For some, politicians are seen as disingenuous people seeking power but for these men, they are exceptional, they walk in accordance to the masses interests.
Love them or hate them, they are special politicians I have ever met, they represent true unity, they represent solutions to community ills. You can only decide which side you’re politically by your actions and doings in the society.
As there’s no substitute for being real with others or yourself. Being your authentic self can make you happier, build confidence and best of all, save you the trouble of constantly putting on an act. These men can be said to be the *Three Wise Men of Okun Land*, they inspired others to grow wisely.
Congratulations to the followers who has found strength in unity, weaknesses in division, you guys are on point and for those who are still seeing themselves as enemies I must tell you that you are only crying more than the bereaved, take a moment and learn from these three wise men.
Remember, “alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”.
*_God bless Okun Nation_*.
