I can step down as Governor of Oyo state – Seyi Makinde

Seyi Makinde

The Governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde, has claimed he would step down, if the people make the demand.

Makinde insisted he was not bothered about remaining in office and vowed to take decisions in the best interest of the state and Yorubaland.

The Governor made these remarks at the Pan Yoruba Congress held at Mapo Hall, Ibadan.

“By virtue of my office, I can see some certain things that you cannot easily see and I stand on my honor to say that I will take decisions in the best interest of my people”, he said.

“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.”

Makinde disclosed that at the last security meeting, he created a War Room “because the issue of security is beyond rhetoric”. The governor also set up a Task Force on Security, which he chairs.
