Makinde Does Not Deserve Re-Election

Oyo State’s main opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Governor Seyi Makinde does not deserve re-election for a second term in office come 2023.

APC in a statement obtained by Naija News on Monday said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has failed woefully in the state, hence another chance to lead will breed serious insecurity in Oyo State.

The statement issued by the APC State Secretary in the state, Alhaji Tajudeen Olanite, said PDP is out to silence opposition and turn Oyo into a one-party state.

It accused the Makinde-led government of becoming too intolerant of opposition in the state because the PDP know that they have failed woefully, and they don’t have any good thing to offer the good people of the state.

Olanite accused Governor Makinde of using the instrumentalities of the state to empower thugs that have been fingered in the killing of some people in the state.
