The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, on Monday publicly declared his assets in fulfillment of his campaign promises to the people of the state.
Naija News gathered the governor visited the Oyo State office of the Code of Conduct Bureau in Ibadan to receive a copy of the asset declaration form which was previously declared at the High Court of Oyo State, on May 28, 2019.
Meanwhile, the action of the Governor has generated several reactions on the social media blog site, Twitter.
Here are some of the reactions as follows:
This is how we roll with integrity…. PMB should know that Seyi Makinde is 100 steps ahead of him on the integrity scale. Oyo State is in a good hand ?????????

His Excellency, Seyi Makinde has fulfilled his promise.
He is wealthy like Roman Abramovich
Hardworking like Ronaldo
And humble like Messi
In other news, our Daura Bakayoko of "Integrity FC" is yet to fulfill his own similar promise till date. https://t.co/zrO5x2DMMF

Buhari has made his followers to see poverty as a good thing, see poverty as a way of life, if not how can they be angry that Oyo Governor, Seyi Makinde declared N49b in his asset. May we never follow a leader that will degrade the way we think.

Seyi Makinde: Bans NURTW. Appoints all commissioners. Declares assets.
What's your own governor doing, dearly beloved?

I hope the verification and declaration of sources of the Seyi Makinde's 48 billion assets would be established.
His tax liability on profits made in businesses that shot his assets to that level should also be confirmed.
The guy is putting a noose on his own neck!

My Governor, Seyi Makinde, would have been worth like 100 to 150 billion if not for the fact that he's been spending billions contesting Gubernatorial elections since 2007.

okorocha was richer than this but look what he did to imo state

I think he worked at Shell for about 8 years or something. Left to start his. Himself and the present Ogun state governor have serious money. I'm hoping they can take their states forward seeing as they are entrepreneurial bigwits. Makinde I can vouch for anytime.
