In an open letter to Oyedele, Mogbojuri noted that Oke from Ilaje and Oyedele from Ikale should work harmoniously ahead of the gubernatorial election.

PASSIONATE APPEAL TO ENGR. IFE OYEDELE AS HISTORY BECKONS.
Greetings to you sir in the names of heroes and patriots on whose sweat and struggles Ondo State is thriving until recently that we have men of incompatible spirits with our founding fathers running the affairs of the state as if the state was used as a collateral to obtain facilities from their family establishment
Sir, your efforts to see that the state is returned to her place of pride cannot be undermined and am very sure our history as a state will always take cognisance of efforts you have made in the state so that the labor of the heroes past shall not be in vain.
It is important as a result of efforts you are maikng that I write to you on behalf of the good people of ondo state in order to draw your attention to the fact that we are once again at a decisive time and history is beckoning on individuals in different capacities as it is popularly said that no individual can make history alone but history do revolve around individuals.
At this juncture of events in our dear state, am more convinced that history is revolving around you hence, seeking your attention to play a crucial role at this decisive time.
You will recall sir that during the primary election of APC in 2016, we as a people made a silly mistake of not harmonising the strength of Senator Borrofice, Chief Oke and Dr. Abraham therefore, the reason for our inability to defeat Akeredolu who as we speak with his immediate family has become a threat and clog in the wheel of progress to Ondo State and his people.
As a result of this, the state has been plague with different problems which is a by product of our inability to put our house in order and the same is about to repeat itself again if we do not make concerted efforts to avert it.
In order to forestall the present situation we have found ourselves where we are being enslaved in our own state and to correct the past mistakes, it is important we appeal to you to see reasons why you have to form synergy with the leadership of Unity Forum, the forum itself and the decision to field chief Oke SAN against Akeredolu the incumbent.
Sir, you will agree with me that Ikales and Ilajes have always worked together as brothers to develop Ondo State and the synergy of the two ethnic groups has always been in the best interest of the state.
As you are, it is obvious that God has blessed you beyond expectations and only him can reward your labor on our dear state.
However, the sacrifice the state requires from you at this crucial time is for you to consolidate with Unity Forum and work closely with the group in the best interest of the state.
Without mincing words, your decision to work with unity group leadership will make the state more secured and assured as we wrestle against our collective taskmaster than any other decision or options you may be considering.
Sir, we shall look forward to hearing from you in order to have further engagements with you.
Kayode Mogbojuri Igbokoda, Ondo State.
