Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has again disclosed that his administration is not tied to any godfather but rather accountable to the people which makes it easier to lay out the planned programmes in his campaign.
The governor, who declared this while hosting the Prelate of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr. Samuel Kalu Uche, at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan,
added that he has only God as his Father and people of the state to account to.
He further restated his administration’s resolve to continue improving the standards of education in the state, noting that education is one of the key pillars of his administration.
A statement by Mr. Taiwo Adisa, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, quoted Makinde as saying that the Start Them Early Project, ‘STEP-Oyo’, being operated in secondary schools, was introduced to improve education standards in the state.
He noted that Methodist High School is one of the schools that have been selected for the project.
He said: “I want to thank and appreciate you for your kind words in terms of what you have seen that we are doing in the state. We also appreciate you for coming for this visit.
“This is a government that does not have any godfather apart from God the Father.
“So, it is a lot easier to lay out our programmes and follow them through because we are only accountable to the people.”
