According to honourable Fadeyi, who represents Ona-Ara constituency, the house’s vote of confidence was informed by the visible success of the present administration in the state which has culminated in improved living conditions for the people of Oyo state. He also revealed that negating such progressive policies will be tantamount to hating the citizenry.



In his words: “We need to reaffirm a vote of confidence on the state Governor, a visionary and passionate leader; his Excellency Governor Seyi Makinde.”





“We all know the admiration and unfolding glorification of the victory of governor Seyi Makinde at the general election in April 2019. This victory has witnessed many unprecedented achievements recorded by his Excellency within two years of his administration.”



“His excellency, being a visionary and proactive leader is steering the ship of Oyo state with candour, humility, rare intelligence, dedication and respect for all.

“Thus, he’s been able to lay a good legacy of stability with treasured and unflinching values that have transformed the leadership between the legislature and other arms of government and impacted the lives of the people of Oyo state.”



Honourable Fadeyi listed the works of the present administration in the state and said that governor Makinde has developed all Oyo state sectors.



“Further note, Mr Speaker, that the philosophy of quality leadership of governor Seyi Makinde is tailored towards four primary pillars namely; health, education, security and economic expansion through agricultural valued chain.”



“These pillars have been vigorously pursued since the inception of the PDP-led government in the state under the leadership of a promising and fulfilled governor.”

“The legal framework put in work to safeguard the resources of Oyo state was the passage of the Oyo state anti-corruption agency law of 2019 which is the first of its kind in the History of Successful Governance in Oyo state.”




“The membership of the agency has been constituted and work has vigorously started by the agency. It is a known fact, especially in philosophical parlance, that change is inevitable in life. Against this background, his Excellency took steps to streamline and restructure the public service for effective service delivery with the prompt payment of salary to serving workers on the 25 of every month tagged ‘GSM bits’.”


He praised the governor for his prompt payment of salaries of civil servants, as well as the pensions and gratuities of pensioners. This, he said, has improved the standard of living of Oyo State residents.


“The pensioners are not left behind with the payment of pension and gratuity due to them by the present administration. No wonder, people address his Excellency as God Sent Man (GSM). He also paid the backlog of the arrears of pensions and gratuities.”


“All the efforts of the governor on civil and public servants and pensioners in the state culminated in the improved standard of living of an average person in the state because of the economic impact of prompt salary payment on the state economy.”
