Oyo Govt. Refutes Publication Of Makinde’s Presidential Ambition
The media office of Governor, Seyi Makinde has described as fake news item purportedly promoting Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, as a presidential hopeful in the 2023 election.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Taiwo Adisa disclaimed the alleged promo, describing it as one of the antics of fake news promoters.
The statement reiterates that Governor Makinde has no hand in any such campaign for the Presidency, as he has always stated that tomorrow only belongs to God.
It urges members of the public to ignore the fake news and see it as the handiwork of the opposition which continues to show its desperation to retake power at all cost.
The statement read: “This is clearly the antics of purveyors of social media lap dogs, who are merely seeking to distract well-meaning people of Oyo State from the joy occasioned by the well-deserved promotion, to the Premier League, of the Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC).
“We believe that this fraudulent post alluded to the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde is the handiwork of opposition elements, as APC’s social media lap dogs widely posted the fake news on their social media accounts.
“It is the usual practice of naysayers and detractors to seek to mix sour grapes in the basket of fruits, at a time when well-meaning citizens are celebrating.
“It is unthinkable that the governor, who has cautioned supporters against mounting a second-term campaign for him, would launch a 2023 presidential campaign at this period.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Makinde will not change his belief that power belongs to Almighty God and that only God knows the direction He is taking every of his creation.
