2023: Charlatans Can’t Wrestle Power from me- Makinde
As the race for the 2023 gubernatorial election appears to be taking shape, Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde on Wednesday at Ogbomosho fired a warning salvo at opposition politicians in the state, saying they have nothing to offer. However, Governor Makinde has not told anyone if he would seek for a second term bid. There are indications he may announce his intention at the appropriate time.
Governor Makinde said that the same opposition politicians who have been posturing about 2023 were roundly rejected by the people in 2019, stating that such politicians have nothing to offer by trying to distract him with talks about 2023.
He asked them to calm down, as, according to him, it is too early to start talking about second term.
Makinde stated that even if he decides not to seek re-election in 2023, the state will not fall into the hands of charlatans anymore.
“Let me sound this: if I will not seek re-election, I am sure that Oyo State will never, again, be in the hands of charlatans. So, calm down. It is even too early to start talking about a second term. Some parties that do not have even one councilor are saying that they will send me out of the Government House in 2023,” he said.
