The executive governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde addressed the people of Oyo State in a press conference coordinated by The Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State as he celebrates one year in office.
In his speech, the governor said that,
“My dear good people of Oyo State, it has been one year since we took over office as administrators of the Oyo State Government; and as every other administrator does, there is a time for acting and a time for accounting.”
“We will be rendering a full account of our stewardship by 2023, but before then, it is only fair and just to mark where we are co.ing from so that we will know where we are going, as our elders say, ‘when a person embarks on a journey, he should stop from time-to-time, to ensure he has not strayed from the path.'”
“In my inaugural address, 1 year ago, I promised not to dwell on the past but look into the future. In the past 365 days, I have not allowed myself to be distracted from the goal. I have remained focused on the urgency and the magnitude of the task ahead.”
“I also recall saying in the address that I will build on the programs of the past administration, that we will put aside politics for the good of our state and I am happy to report to you that we have not strayed from that path.”
“I especially thank every one of you, good citizens of Oyo State for your trust and support in the past State; I felt your love when I came down with COVID-19; your private and public messages were well received. I thank you.”
Recall that Seyi Makinde won the Oyo State gubernatorial election last year over the candidate of the then ruling party, APC.
