An Open Letter To Engr. Seyi Makinde | Deji Ola


Kindly permit me to once again congratulate you on your well deserved victory, I pray your era as Oyo state Governor will be known for good and prosperity. 

However, I will be very meticulous in juxtaposing this letter of mine so as not to bore you with unnecessary rhetorical expression or much words.

No doubt,  your emergence comes at the right time as Oyo state people are passing through hard time in the hand of “koseleri” government. This further gave reasons for their insistence on a new dawn which brought power to the people characterising what they shall expect after your emergence at the polls, they are cock sure that you will bring smile to their faces and also make life worth living for them as citizens of this state once again. 

This, however, cannot be a lone work but shall be possible through a combined efforts by exceptional team members which is also known as synergy. Synergy is what happens when one plus one equals ten or a hundred or even a thousand! Together we are stronger, our voices louder, and the synergy of our actions more powerful. Synergy is better than my way or your way.

Interestingly, the expectation I stated above is not all about Oyo state alone as the entire south west people believe your government will prove the importance of bringing men who understand what the masses need into power especially as our great party is matching back to our lost glory in a new dimension. 

My Governor sir, with due respect I am very sure that you can never let us down neither can you afford not to do us proud,  you must surely engage all required machineries to reposition Oyo state for good which in return will positively and effectively affect the entire south west at large. It is important to state that, I am not unaware of pressure from all corner lobbying for various political appointments. I wish to advise that your appointments should be on the stable of absolute loyalty, merit, competence, and professionalism.

Appropriate persons should be appointed to suit their expertise which will make us different unlike some other political parties whose appointment is lopsided (a case where a Senior Advocate of Nigeria was appointed to manage three key ministries when he would have done much better serving under the  Ministry of Justice which best fits his credentials). 

Conclusively sir,  I will also wish to advise that you honour all agreements reached during the coalition process between various political parties who believed in your dream to a useful tool sent from God to liberate Oyo State and jettison their political will and ambitions to follow your trail because if you do as promised, I can assure you of a very bright political future.

While I am wishing you an exceptional administration, permit me to say *Omituntun , Igba Otun deeee*
