Oyo ADC Passes Vote Of Confidence On Governor Makinde, Louds His Achievements Within Short Time


By Henry Odeh


The African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Oyo state has yesterday passed a vote of confidence on governor Makinde and has commended his giant strides to have achieved so much within so short a time. The party has also dissociated itself from a splinter group from the party that sought to discredit the laudable achievements of the governor.

In a communique released by the party at the end of an all inclusive stakeholders meeting at Emmanuel Alayande Teachers’ House Samonda Ibadan, the party commended Governor Makinde “for implementing masses friendly policies and programs that has rebranded Oyo state as a template for good governance in Nigeria.

The party chieftains were led to the meeting by the former Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Chief Michael Koleoso, Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, the acting state party chairman, Reverend Adeniran, former deputy speaker, Rt Honourable Musah Abdulwasi, state, local and ward executive members as well as prominent party stalwarts drawn from across the state.

The communique reads in part: “The party restates its unflinching support to the governance style of the Government of unity led by Engineer Oluwaseyi Abiodun Makinde as being widely adjudged by the populace as truly progressive.

“It commends and appreciates Governor Makinde’s efforts in his populist policies and programmes which include: prompt payment of salaries, abolition of fees in public schools, distribution of free exercise and textbooks, review of disengagement in the civil service, employments generation through Public Private Partnership (PPP), health reforms, security rejuvenation and many more.

“It assures Governor Makinde’s administration of its unalloyed support towards righting the many wrongs that characterised the immediate past administration in the state and committed to the government of unity even as we remind the Governor to duly respect the mutual and gentleman agreement with the coalition parties in all the strata of his administration.”

The ADC therefore dissociated itself from mischievous moves especially a misleading press release credited to some fifth columnists in the name of the party seeking political attentions.

However, in an interview with journalists, Senator Sunmonu said the party was meeting for the first time since the last election, noting that it was imperative that as a party, the meeting was needed to notch up on some issues.

She said: “We have not been able to meet since the last election and we thought it necessary to meet, so that we will unite and more so, for the fact that we are in a coalition group, these are the things that we can all decide collectively on the way forward, that was why we are here.

She explained that the coalition has met with the governor, pointing out, “we can say that the governor is a man of his words and that he is still abiding by the coalition agreement.”

“We also believe that it would be good to relate the outcome of our meetings with him.
