The Southwest zonal leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has called on the electorates in Oyo State to massively vote for Governor Seyi Makinde on Saturday for his land mark achievements.
In a statement by its spokesman, Chief Sanya Atofarati, the zonal leadership, pointed out the achievements of the Oyo State governor saying the testimonies of his commitment to the development of the state are enough for his reelection.
While Commenting on his leadership qualities, the zonal PDP noted that re-electing Makinde would enable him to continue with the transformation of the state.
According to the statement, “As we approach the March 11 governorship election in Oyo State, it is pertinent to look beyond the outcome of the last week Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections and focus on returning Governor Seyi Makinde to Agodi Government House to complete his second term in office.
“The people of Oyo State as the epicentre of Yoruba politics are too sophisticated and politically enlightened not to be deceived by any primordial sentiments to make a wrong decision.
“Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration in the past four years has brought a paradigm shift in the area of governance, welfare, infrastructure and poverty alleviation to the good people of Oyo State.
“We cannot forget in a hurry Governor Makinde’s administration mantra of Omituntun 1 which translates to massive infrastructural projects across the State, the boost in healthcare and astronomical increase of the IGR from monthly paltry N1billion in 2019 to above N3 billion in 2023, the upgrade of LAUTECH to full blown Oyo State property, prompt payment of salaries and pensions to workers, payment of backlog of Gratuity and pension arrears, completion of over 350 kilometres of tarred roads, equipment of community health centres across the state and improved security with the inauguration of South Western Nigerian Security Network popularly called ‘Amotekun’ are all pointers to Governor Makinde’s midas touch on the state in the past four years.
“A vote for him next Saturday would usher in Omituntun 2 which is a metaphor for continuity of good governance in Oyo State and all hands must be on deck to speak with our votes next Saturday by returning Governor Makinde and all the state House of Assembly members.
“Oyo State is a PDP state and we are optimistic that the good people of Oyo State will return the PDP to power to complete the winning streak”.
