Oyo state experiencing Phenomenal Growth under Makinde – Oyo PDP Lawmakers

A People’s Democratic People (PDP) member representing Oyo South Senatorial District of Oyo state in the National Assembly; Senator Kola Balogun yesterday passed a vote of confidence on ‘Seyi Makinde, the Oyo state governor, complimenting him for the government’s extraordinary achievements in the last two years.

The Senator, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues during a courtesy call to the governor in his office, said the visit was to congratulate him on his outstanding achievements in the state over the previous two years.

According to a statement released by Makinde’s Chief Press Secretary; Mr. Taiwo Adisa, the senator was quoted saying: “Your Excellency, on behalf of my colleagues from the National Assembly, we have come to officially pay this courtesy call, and to use the occasion to congratulate you on your tremendous achievements in the last two years as the governor of this pacesetter state.”

He stated that the current Oyo State administration has improved the state’s performance ranking and has outperformed the previous administration in terms of timely payment of civil servants, teachers, and pensioners’ salaries; provision of instructional materials to schools; and other infrastructural development in the state.

“I have the mandate of my colleagues and brothers to let you know that we are aware of what you have been doing and to congratulate you for it. We know that before you came into office, in this state, pensioners and teachers were not being paid as and when due. Instructional materials were not given to schools.”

“So, with these efforts, you have been able to move Oyo State in terms of performance ranking, because we know that, going by the record, the last administration, in WAEC, was 26 or 28. That has improved a lot.”
