Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has vowed that he would exit the office if the people who elected him into office makes the demand.
Makinde who stated this on Wednesday at the Pan Yoruba Congress held at Mapo Hall in Ibadan, said he would take decisions in the best interest of Oyo people.
He said: “When I was informed about this gathering, I told Baba Adebanjo that I will be here personally.
“By the virtue of my office, I can see certain things that you cannot easily see and I stand on my honour to say will take decisions in the best interest of my people.
“What do they want to do to Seyi Makinde? As I stand before you, if I am being asked to leave the seat as the governor, I do not have a pin to go and pick in my office in the Secretariat. I go there with my bag and go back to my house with my bag.”
“Now, some are saying Presidency should be zoned to the South West in 2023 and making some unfounded comments. One thing I know is, the issue of 2023 should not be the main discourse for now but how we can ensure we give people what they deserve in this federation called Nigeria.
“That is what I think is the major challenge before us. And where it is needless to spill the blood of innocent people, we should not. Like our father will say ‘wisdom surpasses power’. So, I want to urge us to apply wisdom in all we do,” he said.
KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Seyi Makinde had recently ordered the demolition of the Oyo State Government lodge located in the Asokoro area of Abuja.
