The Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to Governor Seyi Makinde, Mr Taiwo Adisa Saturday vowed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the 2019 general election, Chief Adebayo Adelabu cannot dislodge Governor Makinde from office come 2023.
Mr Adisa in a statement made available to newsmen in Ibadan stressed that the claims by Chief Adelabu at a media chat on Thursday that he would remove Governor Makinde “from office in 2023 amounted to a wild dream of a man blinded by ambition”.
The CPS emphasized that the APC governorship candidate lacked what it takes to move Oyo state forward.
“We will like to state, however, that Adelabu should not take his arrogance to the point of playing god by claiming to have power to remove Makinde in 2023. No matter what he does, Makinde will not be distracted. The governor has not said anything about 2023, because he is busy delivering on the mandate given to him.
“When the time comes to talk about 2023, however, it is clear as crystal that the people will not allow wicked politicians to take advantage of them. They already know those who are only interested in building capitalistic ventures and milking the people to their bone marrows.”
On the allegation by the APC governorship candidate that Governor Makinde has not done anything significant since assumption of office, the CPS said the fact remains that the governor is performing, building a new Oyo state.
“let it be on record that the people of Oyo State are happy with the deliverables by the administration of Governor Makinde, since he has practically turned the state to a huge construction site.
“Everyone is happy that the governor is delivering on his promises. But one is in no doubt to state that Adelabu has never read a line of the Roadmap to Accelerated Development of Oyo State 2019-2023, which is the book of government for every step Governor Makinde has taken since May 2019.
“One is also not in doubt to state that Adelabu does not know that rather than tax the hapless students of Oyo State, Governor Makinde has been paying In excess of N526 million per term to primary and secondary schools in the state to cater for the needs of their pupils and students as part of his free education policy.”
