Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has vowed not to shy away from taking hard decisions by stepping on people’s toes in a bid to make the state great.
Makinde, who also advised other state governors not to allow themselves to be caged by crave for second term, stated that service delivery to the people should be of greater importance to office holders.
He said his administration will set a path of sustainable development that will be beneficial to the state.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, said Makinde stated these while performing two separate functions in his office.
Governor Makinde, while receiving reports of seven committees set up by his administration to look into various issues, said:
“I have seen people come to me and said I should not do some certain things or take certain decisions because of second term. Those that are interested in second term should wait, at least till 2022. For now, we should do the job the people have committed to our hands and do things that will place Oyo State on the path of greatness.”
Also, while receiving the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State, Mr. Musa Wada, Makinde advised office-seekers and governors not to allow themselves to be caged by the crave for a second term in office.
“The people are the sole determinants of the fate of the politicians. Fresh term, second term are all linked to what we have for the people. During the first term, you make promises to the people and once you start ticking those boxes, the people can always decide that they want you to come in first and later say they want you to continue,” the governor said.
Meanwhile, the Socialist Party of Nigeria (SPN) claimed Governor Makinde has achieved nothing, but mere propaganda since his inauguration on May 29 this year.
Despite being celebrated by most Nigerians for his achievements so far, the SPN insisted that none of the so-called governor’s achievements are to be celebrated.
