2019: Oyo North PDP Adopts Makinde As Guber Candidate


The aspiration of Engr. Seyi Makinde, a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gubernatorial hopeful in Oyo State received a major boost.

Yesterday at the Oyo North Senatorial district meeting held in Saki, in Oke Ogun area of the state, party leaders and members of the PDP adopted him as their governorship candidate for the 2019 election.

At the meeting chaired by its senatorial chairman and Oyo State PDP vice-chairman, Hon. Waheed Oluwakemi Ayinde, Hon. Debo Adejumobi from ATISBO local government moved a motion for the adoption of Makinde to be the flagbearer in the election. 

He said he was moving the motion based on the fact that the people of the state are clamouring for Makinde as the only candidate who can defeat the ruling party in the state.

The motion was seconded by Engr. Sarafa Omirinde from Saki West local government and majority of the party members present at the meeting erupted in jubilation.

The meeting had in attendance 11 local government chairmen and representatives of the two local government executive council whose chairmen were absent.

Party leaders such as Chief Jacob Adetoro, Senator Hosea Agboola, Rt. Hon Mulika Adeola Akande, Alhaji Suleiman Adediran (Santana), to mention a few, spoke glowingly of the adoption of Makinde, vowing to work together with all within and outside the party to ensure he wins the 2019 governorship election.

It will be recalled that the Oyo South Senatorial district held a similar meeting two weeks ago where Makinde was equally adopted.


  1. This publication is false as there was no such endorsements neither did anybody eulogized Seyi or his false endorsement. Debo that spoke, asking for the endorsements was booed with shouts of “ole” “ole” and was never allowed to finish his speech before Alhaji Aranse from Itesiwaju LG took the microphone from him. It will do your online publication a lot of good if it investigates such news before publication. Whoever gave you the publication is one of those hungry politicians who have been paid to do hatchet jobs. Your online news is more credible than to be used by such men of no integrity or home base value
