As the 9th Oyo State House of Assembly winds down, Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde has declared his support for the re-election of the incumbent Speaker, Adebo Ogundoyin.
Makinde said although he is not a member of the Assembly, he would endorse Ogundoyin for the post of Speaker in the incoming 10th Assembly due to his performance in the 9th Assembly.
He said the Eruwa-born lawmaker has done well enough to deserve a second term as the Speaker just the way the people of the state gave him a second term in office as the governor of the state.
He spoke while commissioning an electrification project facilitated by Mogaji Dotun Sanusi for the people of Idi-Obi, Jigan, Kure, Olorunda Ogunsola and environs.
The governor made the remark while reacting to an earlier comment by a former President of the Central Council for Ibadan Indigenes (CCII).
Makinde said “When Baba Oyero spoke earlier, he thanked Senator Sunmonu and the current speaker, Adebo Ogundoyin. Well, I am not a member of the House of Assembly, but I want to join him and greet the incoming Speaker, Adebo Ogundoyin again.
“I know that I and member of the Assembly work hand in hand because we put the interest of our state first and putting the interest of our state first means we must have stability in government.
“Anybody who does well, just like the people of the state appreciated us and gave us another opportunity for a second term, anybody who does well, we must give such an individual another opportunity to continue the good works.”
