Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has been commended for his transformational leadership and people-oriented programmes since he assumed office in May 2019.

The stakeholders, who declared the total support of Oorelope Local Government to the governor’s re-election, noted that the party is one and indivisible in Oorelope and that its absolute loyalty is to the governor.
The party stakeholders equally lauded the governor on the construction of Saki-Ogbooro-Igboho Road and the Light-Up Oyo project, which are ongoing in the local government.

According to the statement endorsed by the stakeholders at the end of the meeting, they declared that the local government would vote massively for Governor Makinde, if and when he decides to seek reelection.
