The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gubernatorial candidate in Oyo state Engr Seyi Makinde, has said that“If truly the outgoing administration is popular, the governor will not need to be distributing branded garri and kulikuli for those he had governed for almost eight years.

This is just as Makinde promised to pay workers’ salary before Political office holders if he wins the election.

Makinde added that the welfare of the state civil servants will take precedent over that of the political office holders when he becomes the state governor.


In a release from his campaign organisation and signed by Prince Dotun Oyelade, Makinde said that it is morally and constitutionally wrong for a government to pamper politicians to the detriment of the toiling workers.

“I will first of all take care of workers’ salaries before considering those of politicians and there will be enough to go round,” the PDP candidate said.

Makinde said that the Ajimobi administration has a record of maltreating workers in the past seven and a half years as he recalled a 2016 incident when seven union leaders were detained and refused bail and remained in detention for five days. This he said can only happen in a military regime.

These, among others, show clearly that this government cannot impose anyone on the workers to continue the regime of workers’ intimidation

Makinde warned that any plans to rig the election will meet with people’s brick wall as the attempt to practise what happened in Osun state will fail woefully because the circumstances are sharply different.
