Akiolu said attending the meeting became necessary because all those elected and given leadership positions must be respected by all, including monarchs.

Akiolu said the visit was to felicitate with the governor on his success at the polls and bring greetings from the kingdoms the traditional rulers administer.

Akiolu, who spoke in Yoruba, also debunked claims that he was a puppet to some bigwigs in the country.
He said that he feared no one except God, and would always speak my mind, aside speaking truth to power.
