“This is a game of interest, by God’s grace next four years I will still be the Governor. There are many positions in federal, we have ministerial, federal works and few other positions. If Oyo state interest is not protected i wont fight for it, I can’t be the Governor and minister at the same time. I can’t be the Governor and be the chairman of one federal agency at the same time, the positions needs to be occupied by some of us.
I’m in a position to project and protect the interest of all of us. So we are still talking, it is not yet time, and it has a reason why it is not yet time. So I want to beg you all, federal will not hang in the air, it is from polling unit to the ward, to local government to state that makes up federal. So our work is at the grassroot level, let us go to our polling units, our wards, let’s organize ourselves at the local level, and at the state level will do everything within our power.
A friend of PDP in Oyo state gave us 33 new brand new buses, one per local government so we will give our coordinators at the local government level…
” We are talking and very soon you will hear what you want to hear, I have drank from the well pf PDP and i will not polute that well, there are many that will still drink from the well”
Makinde who called from genuine reconciliation among the party members said he is happy with the level of relationship among party members in Oke Ogun and urged them to continue to work as one
” Even when we have to disagree with eachother, let us do so at the party in government and not to go back to the opposition again”.
