The Oyo State Chapter of the Labour Party (LP) has adopted the incumbent Governor Seyi Makinde ahead of the March 11th Gubernatorial elections.
Giving a reason for the party’s adoption, the State LP Chairman, Sadiq Atayese, said that Makinde’s adoption was based on his capability and charisma in leading the State.
Further addressing a press conference on Sunday, Atayese urged the people of Oyo State to vote LP at the State Assembly elections.
He noted that the recently concluded presidential election has proved that no political party can “win the coming gubernatorial election single-handedly.”
Atayese stated that the LP resolved to work with Makinde because his ideologies tally with that of the party in the area of security, infrastructural development, food security, education and human capital development.
“It is of note that the present PDP administration under Gov. Makinde has presented its scorecard from the health sector with the provisions of Primary Healthcare Centres in every ward to security, others,” he added.
