Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has stated that he is not afraid of losing the 2023 governorship election.
He noted that he had previously contested governorship elections in 2007, 2011 and 2015 and failed, so if the people of Oyo State ask him to leave, he’ll take his bag and go home.
“if the people of Oyo State ask me to leave the office as governor today, I won’t hesitate to leave the office because I go to office daily with my bag,” Governor Makinde who spoke at the pan-Yoruba Congress at Mapo Hall in Ibadan, stated.
“Let me tell you here today. I don’t have a political father. It was God who made me governor and not human being. I fear only God and not any human. No matter how powerful a man is, I cannot fear him.
“I contested election in 2007, 2011 and 2015 but failed and when it is time for God to make me a governor, he made me. If the people of the state decide that they don’t want me again, I will only take my bag and leave because I don’t have a pin in the office,” he said.
