Why I Was Quick To Proscribe Oyo NURTW — Makinde


Governor Seyi Makinde has revealed why he didn’t hesitate to proscribe the Oyo State chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, following alleged forceful takeover of motor-parks across the state.

According to Makinde, who spoke at a Special Eid-el-Fitri celebration which he hosted at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, “What we need is for development to come to Oyo state and development will come only in an atmosphere of peace.”

“That is why as soon as I came into government and people started saying that the NURTW people wanted to cause mayhem, I proscribed them. It does not matter  which faction supported me or which one did not. I am the Governor of all the people of Oyo state and it doesn’t matter which party you belong”, Governor Makinde indicated.

This is just as he added that “I want to plead with you  that you should not stop praying for the government and those of us in government because I do tell people that what you need to win an election is far less than what you need to run a government.”
