The Oyo State Councillors’ Forum has passed a vote of confidence on the State Governor, Engr Seyi Makinde, for what it called exceptional leadership attributes and disposition to good governance.
The Forum noted that the Governor Makinde-led administration has brought unprecedented economic growth and sustainable infrastructural development to the nooks and crannies of the state.
The group, in a communique released at the end of its general meeting and signed by its Chairman, Hon. Muili Kazeem Arowodana and the Secretary, Hon. Okunade Ademola Idowu said the Councillors in the 351 electoral Wards of the State expressed their unalloyed support for the Governor and resolved to work assiduously for his re-election in 2023.
The communique denounced insinuations that Governor Makinde had neglected the Forum and its members since they came into office more than 11 months ago; adding that contrary to claims of neglect, Governor Makinde had, as of April 11, 2022, approved an improved welfare package for members of the Forum.
The Forum apologised to Governor Makinde for any embarrassment a recent voice -note which it said painted a wrong picture of the situation in the councils might have caused his person and the Government, noting that its members have pledged to continuously support his administration.
