Oyo LG polls: PDP’ll retain all positions on April 27 – Makinde 


Governor Seyi Makinde Tuesday said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will retain all positions in the April 27, 2024 local government elections in Oyo state.

The governor said this at Ode Oba, Iseyin, while giving flags to the PDP chairmanship candidates in Iseyin federal constituency. 

He said PDP will retain all positions in the local government elections due to the unprecedented achievements of his administration.

Charging the people of the state to vote en masse for all PDP candidates, Makinde said the government at the grassroots will toe the line of his government in delivering sustainable development.

“I congratulate the chairmen and the vice chairmen in advance. I believe our people will vote massively for them. Those who said we are planning to write results, can you see them campaigning? They are not. As for us, we will go out en masse, vote and elect our candidates.

“I am in Oke-Ogun zone I today. When we said we wanted to do the Moniya-Iseyin Road in 2019, didn’t we do it? Yes, we did. From there, we told the contractor to face Oyo-Iseyin Road and he did. After that, we started the Iseyin to Ogbomoso and that was also done. 

“I said in 2019 that we would facilitate the establishment of a higher institution in Iseyin and we fulfilled that promise. For eight years, the only road the last administration did in the whole Oke-Ogun zone is just the road within Iseyin and they didn’t do another one. That was just a 6.5km road. So, what do they want to point to while campaigning to you ahead of this council election?.

Expressing confidence that the PDP candidates would come out victorious, considering his government’s unprecedented achievements in Oke-Ogun Zone and the state in general, the governor urged residents of the state to go out in their numbers to vote, because it is their civic duty.
