2023: We Have Already laid the Foundation to Turn Things Around – Makinde
Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo State, has declared that he is still a contender in the 2023 election after promising to serve the full eight years required by state law as governor.
Makinde made the announcement Friday at the Government House Arcade in Agodi, Ibadan, during a massive praise and end-of-the-year Thanksgiving event with the theme “Halleluyah.”
State government officials and other visitors were among the luminaries drawn to the huge celebration from all areas of life.
When asked about the opposition’s ambitions to form a coalition and remove him from the Agodi Government House in 2023, Makinde replied he was unconcerned and urged them to reconsider their choices.
He stated that 2023 is not about creating a new Oyo State but rather building on the already established basis of the current administration in the state, known as “Omituntun 2.0.”
Governor Makinde instructed the opposition to quit dreaming, that as an engineer by trade, his work entails construction, as opposed to an architect’s work entails drawing.
The road map for the state’s sustainable development from 2023 to 2027 and beyond, he declared, would shortly be made available to the public.
Makinde told the people of the state that good governance would continue in the model state beyond 2023 while quoting Psalm 65:5 to calm their anxieties.
He said: “ Those praying for the oppositions should engage in another prayer points for them, because they have already missed their ways.”
“We have already laid the foundation to turn things around in Oyo State. 2023 is about consolidating on the foundation we have laid.”
“In a couple of days, we will release our road map for sustainable development in Oyo State from 2023 to 2027 and beyond.”
“I don’t want you to be afraid, because it is God’s finished project and we have handed everything to God.
