Oyo Guber: Adelabu Reacts To Makinde’s Election Victory
The candidate of Accord party in the 2023 governorship election in Oyo State, Adebayo Adelabu, has congratulated Governor Seyi Makinde on his election victory.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday declared Makinde, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the winner of Saturday’s election.
Makinde polled the highest votes than his closest rival, Teslim Folarin of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who came second in the election.
In a statement on Sunday, Adelabu urged governor Makinde to see his electoral victory as an opportunity to do more and serve the people diligently.
He said though Oyo State is not yet where it should be, this is another golden opportunity for the governor to ensure that he does not disappoint the people by ensuring even development across the State.
Adelabu urged Makinde to especially focus on the poor state of security in the State; equally important is the state of the environment which needs urgent attention.
The statement further reads: “Our schools should be made more conducive for learning while teachers should be encouraged and trained to do more in order to ensure that Oyo State regains its status as a pacesetter State. Also not to be left out is the urgent industrialization of the State and creation of jobs for our teeming unemployed youths.
“Election has come and gone and we should all go back to our normal daily lives, like I always say. It is my strong belief that election should not be a do or die affair, as God changes times and seasons, he enthrones and dethrones kings according to his wish. God’s time is the best.
“Election is all about giving our state the best in governance and achieving the desired socio-economic development to improve the welfare and prosperity of our people. While we will continue in our constructive, objective and helpful criticism of government policies and programs, all that matter now is joining hands with the governor in our respective capacity to achieve the desired people-oriented development for the state, for posterity to smile on us.
“Once again, accept my hearty congratulations.”
