Still in the euphoria of the  55th year independence anniversary of the country, a onetime Senator and Osi Olubadan of Ibadanland, Lekan Balogun has said that the country was yet to reach where she should be in terms of the potentials she is blessed with.

Balogun, who spoke on Sunday at the maiden Ali-Iwo Day celebrated in the ancient family compound near Agodi-Gate in Ibadan,   Oyo State said there were however signs that Nigeria would get to her expected height.

He remarked that “the journey has been very slow, but, we will surely get there. Nigeria is potentially a very great country and she will certainly be great, the signs are there already”.

The Osi-Olubadan also had words for those criticizing the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, especially on his alleged late composition of cabinet, asking them to exercise patience with him.

According to him, “all that’s well will end well, let’s be patent with him and pray along for him and his team whenever the cabinet is composed so that this country can move forward”.

Speaking on the significance of the Ali-Iwo Day, Balogun, who hails from the Ali-Iwo dynasty described the programme as a way of remembering their ancestor in the compound who he said was born over 200 years and lived a noble and courageous life which till date remains a source of pride to the sons and daughters of the royal lineage.
