I Am Not Contesting Against Makinde In 2023 – Ilaka Dismisses Poster in Circulation

The Chief of Staff to the Oyo state Governor, Chief Bisi Ilaka has urged the general public to ignore posters promoting his 2023 gubernatorial ambition adding that they are not from him.

Ilaka in a statement on Tuesday said Governor Seyi Makinde who is reputed as the people’s Governor is doing very well and will be given a second term mandate by the good people of Oyo state.

The Ladilu of Oyo also stated that he is focused on delivering on what Governor Makinde assigned to him and doesn’t have any gubernatorial ambition.

The statement reads:

“The attention of Chief Bisi Luqman Ilaka, Chief of Staff to Governor Seyi Makinde, has been drawn to some campaign posters being circulated on social media by unscrupulous individuals linking Chief Ilaka with a non-existing governorship ambition. It is so obvious that those behind the evil agenda are envious of the very cordial relationship between the amiable and performing Governor Seyi Makinde and his Chief of Staff and are therefore hellbent on driving a wedge between them.

“It is not surprising that these faceless individuals, after terribly failing in their machinations to smear the Chief of Staff through various tales (and they being apostles of lee mo -hang it on him kind of politics), have chosen the ignoble path of a phoney governorship aspiration to give Chief Ilaka a bad name and hang him. And they will continue to fail.

“Governor Makinde, who is reputed as the people’s Governor, even beyond the shores of Oyo State, is doing very very well and will be given a second term mandate by the good people of Oyo State, no matter how hard these political jobbers try to spin untruth and disseminate same. The general public is advised to ignore such poster. Chief Ilaka knew the governorship existed before he chose to contest as Senator. 2023 is in God’s hands. Ilaka is focused on delivering on what Governor Makinde assigned to him.”
