According to him, "Tunde Eso is my brother and I'm proud of him; he has at least maintained the dignity of the family and used the family name well by showing to the world that we have intellectuals who can run the affairs of our beloved state. Therefore, we have unanimously agreed to back him with 2billion naira so that he can succeed in his aspiration".

Tunde Eso has promised the family that he will not put them to shame and also appealed to Osun State indigenes at home and abroad to support him as he is the youngest and the best person for Osun State governorship contest at this moment
