He made this known when he hosted the leadership and members of the Nigerian Guild of Editors including the Director News, Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN, Husseina Akila Banghashika, for a media tour of his major projects across the state.

The tour provided an opportunity for the gurus in the media industry to x-ray governor Seyi Makinde’s projects and suggest ways to chart forward his service to the people of Oyo State.

The first port of call was the 11MW Hybrid and Solar Independent Power Plant project, which aimed at providing gas for Oyo State residents and electricity for those living at Agodi Secretariat area and its environs.

The governor and his visitors then toured Iseyin, focusing on the 65km Iseyin road project and the reconstructed 34.85km Oyo-Iseyin road, which connects Oyo and the Oke-Ogun Zones with a promise from Governor Makinde to continue to serve the people.

In an interview, the President, Nigerian Guild of Editors,NGE, Eze Anaba implored state governors across the country to Identify core areas which could bring meaningful development to their respective states.

According to the NGE President, the area of interest in terms of agribusiness and road development employed by Governor Seyi Makinde led government in Oyo state would no doubt enhance the development of the state even after he might have left office.

Other sites visited included the Olunloyo Park, which the Governor noted would contribute immensely to tourism in Oyo state.
