The executive governor of Oyo State, Engr Seyi Makinde, has been ranked as the most democratic and performing governor by Nigerians.
The governor, as stated by a prominent socio-political group, the Oyo State Development Advocacy group (OSDAG), said Gov. Seyi Makinde was elected on the May 29th, 2019, and till date, he has no record of any human right violations, and has brought speedy and steady development to his State.
According to the group, Seyi is the modern face of democracy in Nigeria, due to how he has been conducting himself in the public domain. The governor has continued to display his high level of understanding of leadership, governance and politics, which endears him to millions of people around the world.
We commend GSM for bringing the State from a level of low acceptance, to becoming a preferred destination for investment in Agribusiness, Infrastructures, residential and other commercialized activities.
Since Seyi Makinde became governor, more and more people have started relocating to Oyo to work and for residential.
The group, OSDAG has however, listed some of the achievements of Seyi Makinde, since he took over the reign of the State. Apart from roads and other infrastructures springing up in every parts of the State, the State civil servants are paid as and when due, without owing or delaying their salaries. Pensioners who the past governments refused to pay, are now also smiling to the bank.
Seyi Makinde is a great leader, whose acceptance transcend beyond Oyo State, with millions of supporters and admirers across the world. He is working hard round the clock, and delivering on all his campaign promises to citizens and thus far, we are able to present few amongst many of his strides since he assumed office a year ago.
