How Governor Seyi Makinde narrowly escaped missing his inauguration

The newly sworn-in governor of Oyo state, Mr Oluwaseyi Makinde would have missed his inauguration ceremony today but for divine mercies.

Seyi Makinde of the People’s Democratic Party suffered an initial delay as his convoy was locked down in traffic along the Liberty Road due to heavy movement of vehicles and persons to the venue for hours.

The event slated for 10am started at about 11:20 ten minutes after the arrival of the governor to the venue, a 40,000 capacity Liberty Stadium, Ibadan.
