I’ll Go Wherever I Can To Get People To Move Oyo Forward — Makinde

Governor Seyi Makinde has reiterated that his administration is not only about his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, alone  but also about Oyo State.
According to Makinde, who spoke at the inauguration of the trio of Seun Fakorede, Professor Raphael Afonja and Alhaja Fausat Ajoke Sanni as commissioners, he made a promise that wherever he can get the people that will move Oyo State forward,  he would go for them.
He was reacting to the politics that followed the appointment of the commissioners, stressing  that his administration would be  about the interest of the state,.
He added that putting the best forward would guarantee a better Oyo State.
He said “With the swearing-in of these three additional commissioners, we have now gotten to the conclusion of selecting our commissioners for this administration. I made a speech when the other commissioners were sworn in earlier and it is basically the same thing that I am saying to the three of you again.
“We have presented our vision to the people of Oyo state, we have made promises during the campaign and one of the major promises I made at the heat of electioneering was to the youths of Oyo state. I told them that I will select one of them as the commissioner for youths and sports.
“I promised them that whoever is going to be the commissioner of youths and sports will be below 30 years of age and I was conscious of the fact that we are not only going to talk about age but we are also going to talk about content. And I am happy today that we have in Seun Fakorede, the 27years old, who I am proud of as a product of this state.”
He advised politicians to “refrain from destructive politics. If we want progress for our state, we have to put our best forward. I am not saying we are above mistakes, we will make mistakes, no doubt but we will not allow those things that have held down our development in the past to hold us down.
“When people want to talk to us, they better have their facts right because we are very slow in acting, but we will be deliberate and sure-footed on the path that we want to tread.
“So, we have now in the cabinet of Oyo State, eminently qualified individuals and just like I charged the previous sets of commissioners, you shouldn’t see your positions as a way of making money. It is going to be business unusual in Oyo State and I want to charge the three of you.
“Welcome on board, we are on the journey together and we look forward to you to key into the vision that we have for Oyo state and I believe it is doable, I believe we have assembled the best that we have been able to lay our hands-on.”
According to the Governor, the swearing-in of the three additional commissioners have concluded the appointment of commissioners into the state executive council.
