The Real Progressives don't leave the Progressive family for any reason. The Progressives stay with their People whether they belong to Power or not. The Progressives are the grassroot Politicians that get in touch with their People at every moments. Progressives don't flaunt their wealths to oppress their People. This is the most reason they get large number of votes during election. The Progressives don't believe in rigging of election. That is why the Progressives do everything in their capacity to bring to embark on Projects that would benefit their People so that during election, electorates can easily vote for them.
The Late sage, Obafemi Awolowo was the father of Progressives in the old Western region and the Progressives have learnt so many things from him. One major thing learnt from chief Awolowo is Self-discipline. Chief Awolowo was a disciplined Man during his Lifetime and he has taught his followers to be Self-discipline in everything they are doing. Chief Obafemi Awolowo was a real Progressive Man during his lifetime which many of his followers are still following his footsteps up till date.
But the Problem we have these days with Politicians is that many of the Politicians calling themselves Progressives, are they really Progressives? Do they showcase or really Possess the qualities of Progressives? These are questions those Leaders from the Southwest calling themselves Progressives should ask themselves. Chief Awolowo really tried for his People. He brought the dividends of democracy to the downtroddens and to the less Privilege People.
The likes of former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Late Chief Bola Ige, Late chief Jakande, Late Olabisi Onabanjo and others followed the footsteps of the Late Awolowo. Though, majority of them are dead but they left that golden name for their children, even for the unborn Generations. But those calling themselves Progressives today, have nothing to show for it. They call themselves Progressives and their People are suffering. They have nothing to show as Progressives.
Though, there are still some of the Progressives that really behave like chief Awolowo but they are very few in numbers. Therefore The real Progressives are very scarce. The Real Progressives that still exist are not that much. Late chief Bola Ige who was from Osun state also trained many Progressives the way he was trained by chief Obafemi Awolowo but Most of the people he trained are no more with Progressives. They have derailed from the Progressives line.

Chief Akande was trained directly by Late Ige but Akande was not the only Leader trained by Late Chief Bola Ige. Chief Bola Ige trained so many People in Osun state Progressives family along with Chief Bisi Akande. But the Point is that, only chief Bisi Akande remained with Progressives like-minded people. Most of the leaders trained directly by chief Bola Ige along with Chief Bisi Akande have dumped the Progressives family. The Problem is, many of them are just carrying the Progressives for head but they are no more with the Progressives.
It should be recalled that Chief Bisi Akande was the former Governor of Osun State between 1999 to 2003. Akande still maintains his stand among the Progressives up till date. Akande spent just four years as Governor and those who spent eight years have not been able to meet up with Akande's legacies. Chief Akande left a Golden legacies behind which Governors after him have not been able to meet up with his Performance when he was in office.
Chief Bisi Akande happens to be the only Leader that truly maintains the Progressives stand in Osun state. Chief Bisi Akande is a man of honour and a grassroot Politician. He brought dividends of democracy to the People of the State when he was the Governor. Chief Akande also contributes to the Progress of his Party, The All Progressives Congress APC both in the state and at the national level. Akande was the chairman of the Party for years before he handedover to chief John Oyegun. Akande remains the Progressives Man till date.
