He noted that elections are merely a game and should not be taken personally especially when elections are over urging religious leaders and clerics both Christian and Muslim, and Traditional worshipers to continue to support Governor Makinde in his bid to take Oyo state to a more greater height under Omituntun 2.0.
“We’re very grateful to Almighty and Merciful Allah (SWAS), who has graciously acceded to our prayers and supplications to return Governor Seyi Makinde for us as the Executive Governor because of his sterling performance in office in less than three four years.
“The practical developments and delivery of good governance permeating every corner of the state zone by zone were not meant for any political party or religious body but for the good people of Oyo state.
“The outcome of the election which is unprecedented in our collective political history for a political candidate to clear out all 31 local government areas landslide out of 33 will surely go down in history.
This has clearly demonstrated the will of the people far outweighs the politicians which implies that the resolve of the people can never be stopped by any individual or group of politicians.” Adanla concluded.
