Labake Adebowale (Trader): ” i am very happy that the era of terror is over in the history of Oyo state, even though Ajimobi was a governor he forgot that he did not get there on his own, it is we, the masses that put him there but he failed in so many ways but within the last three months or so you will agree with me that there is a bliss of fresh air in Oyo state across all human facet. Governor Seyi Makinde has started very well and i pray for more strength for him”
Rashidat Abiodun (Trader): I thank God that governor Seyi Makinde is my governor because i feel proud now as an indigen of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde has helped me and my husband with the new free education for all policy, my husband has no job and my small business can not take care of my children school fees but now the three of them will go back to school when school resume, may God continue to guide governor Makinde for us.”
