Governor Makinde has Performed and is Performing — Oloko Slams Critics, Accuses Them Of Impatience

The Vice-Chairman of the Oyo State Tourism Board, Abass Oloko has slammed critics of Governor Seyi Makinde saying that contrary to their claims, the governor rewards loyalty and commitment.

Oloko said this in reaction to a statement by Muideen Olagunju, a former Oyo assembly member, who said Makinde did not treat Lanlehin fairly.

He noted that if Femi Lanlehin, and other aggrieved members of the coalition and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had exercised patience, they would have enjoyed Gov. Makinde.

Recall that Lanlehin as the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, in the 2019 election was among, those who stepped down their ambition for Makinde.

Oloko said, “I have not stopped hearing people say Governor Makinde did this and that. But we have all forgotten he is human. To govern a state is not a tea party. And to govern a state like Oyo requires absolute wisdom and guidance from God. For me, I know Governor Makinde is sincere. It may take time, he rewards loyalty. I can assure you about that.

“Remember when the government started, he offered Sen. Lanlehin the chairmanship of the advisory council even before contacting Sen. Alleluyah and he rejected it. At times, we need patience to see what the future holds. I believe if  Sen. Lanlehin had taken up that position, he would have used it very well to advance the cause of others.

”I know many loyalists of Sen. Lanlehin and ADC who are still angry he rejected the appointment. Good, he may have his reasons for rejecting the offer but I think he was impatient. Governor Makinde has a lot of commitment and it takes time before all these can be addressed.

”So, I want to address those who are in the habit of saying Governor Makinde betray anybody, to desist from that. At least, Sen. Lanlehin has joined the APC. May he find what his heart desires there.

“One thing all of these people cannot deny is the fact that Governor Makinde has performed and he is performing. And I am sure that when it is time, our people will repay the achievements by re-electing him for another term,“ the Ibadan chief said.

Oloko subsequently advised opponents of Makinde to stop attacking him at every given opportunity, and instead support his progressive government.
