I Don’t Care If I Lose Re-Election In 2023 — Seyi Makinde

Makinde, Oyo APC trade words over defection rumour

Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has said he is not bothered about winning a second term as governor and does not mind losing his reelection bid, Njenje Media News reports.

The governor made this known at the pan-Yoruba Congress held at Mapo Hall, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Makinde, while declaring he has no political godfather, said he is ready to leave office any time the people of Oyo State say so.

In his words:

“If the people of Oyo State ask me to leave the office as governor today, I won’t hesitate to leave the office because I go to the office daily with my bag.”

According to him: “Let me tell you here today. I don’t have a political father. It was God who made me governor and not a human being. I fear only God and not any human. No matter how powerful a man is, I cannot fear him.

“I contested election in 2007, 2011, and 2015 but failed and when it is time for God to make me a governor, he made me.

“If the people of the state decided that they don’t want me again, I will only take my bag and leave because I don’t have a pin in the office.”
