‘Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State, has said that he would roll out appointments immediately after inaugurating the Oyo State House of Assembly on Wednesday.
Speaking, before he boarded a private jet to Abuja ahead of tomorrow’s proclamation of the 10th National Assembly, at the post inauguration special thanksgiving service organized by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Fathers of Faith on Monday at Oritamefa Baptist Church, Ibadan, said he was desirous of changing the face of governance in the state.
According to him, “From that point, we can move really fast, make the appointments and get people to start working for Oyo State. I am sure we won’t disappoint God and you.”
On his reelection, Makinde said “The election is a motivation to rededicate myself for the service of the state.”
The Governor, who appreciated the people of the state for electing him for another term of four years, promised not to let them down.
He thanked the Christian community in the state for organizing the thanksgiving service, saying:
“The work you have given to me is actually not from 2023 to 2027 because we will put Oyo State on the path to sustainable development between 2023 and 2027. But the work you have given to me is targeting 2027 and beyond.
“So, I am going to do my best in carrying the people of Oyo State along. We already have the roadmap for sustainable development.”
Earlier in his sermon, Oyo State CAN chairman, Apostle (Dr) Joshua Akinyemiju, said the gathering was to appreciate God and worship him on account of the Governor’s electoral victory.
While speaking about the Governor, the Apostle said, “Engr Seyi Makinde is a political apostle and a covenant child of God who brought accountability and probity to the governance of Oyo State.
“That governor Makinde is an assiduous, tenacious, unflinching and heterogeneous entity is not a subject of debate.
“He has a gallant and indomitable spirit to succeed in any venture he sets his hand and mind upon while relying solely on the omnipotent God. This Governor is a reformed reformer who has moved Oyo State from poverty to prosperity within a short period of time.”
He enjoined the Christian community to continue to uphold the Governor in prayers.
