Oyo State is our home and we cannot set it on fire because there is nowhere we can go. “Please continue to support this government in Oyo State. Makinde loves everyone in the state and he is always willing and ready to help. “Today, our civil servants are happy. People of Oke-Ogun can travel to Ibadan even in the dead of night. LAUTECH is now our property in Oyo State unlike before. His free education policy is second to none. Our state is developing in terms of Internally Generated Revenue (IGR). “These and many more are the facts you need to tell the residents of our dear state. Do your investigations and report activities of the government. I am not saying you should not criticise this government but let it be constructively,” he concluded.
