“I celebrate my dear leader, the Executive Governor of Oyo state, His Excellency, Engineer. Seyi Makinde, as he adds another year today.Truly, our political landscape suffers from lack of good leadership, and there is no leadership where there’s no vision”, he said. 

Ayedero of Yorubaland added, “Governor Makinde is a visionary leader, youth-oriented, and result driven person whose actions are bound to impact positively on not only the present generation but also the coming generations. This is why I am proud to identify and associate with him as my leader irrespective of my political affiliation, particularly, in the last general election.

“Indeed, Governor Makinde’s leadership attributes are exemplary and noteworthy. One of the things I cherish about him is his respect for the principles of equity, fairness, and justice as evident in the ways he administers the state”.

He stressed, “For example, the general belief has always been that Oke Ogun region is marginalised. However, since Governor Makinde came on board, he has rekindled the hope of the people of the region by paying attention to them”.

“Oke Ogun people have been clamouring for a university for about 70 years; Governor Makinde saw to this by giving the region LAUTECH campus in Iseyin. Also, the governor provided the region with good, linkable roads to aid their major business which is agriculture. 

“The People’s governor fixed Moniya-Iseyin road; saw to the completion of the dualisation of Saki road; reconstructed Oyo-Iseyin road which connects Oyo and Oke-Ogun Zone; opened up Ogbomoso to Oke-Ogun to  through the construction of Ogbomoso-Iseyin road and other developmental projects.

“Mentioned above are just a few of the numerous dividends of democracy that the people are experiencing, not only in Oke Ogun, but Oyo State at large; the transformational activities of Governor Makinde cut across every nook and cranny of the state”. 

“Dear visionary leader, as you turn 56 today, the people of Oke Ogun and Oyo state at large celebrate you, and we pray that God strengthens you in all ways as you continue to pilot the affairs of our dear state. May you witness many more years on earth in God’s name. Amen.

Ayedero of Yorubaland then rejoiced with Christians on the occasion of the 2023 Christmas celebrations and prayed for all to witness many more of it on earth, saying, ” I’m using this avenue to wish all, particularly, Christians, a blissful Christmas celebration. We shall witness many more of it in God’s name. Amen.”
