The governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has vowed that his government will not be distracted from focusing on delivering good governance to the people despite efforts of opposition elements to make him do otherwise.
Makinde, who made the statement during the 4th Annual Ramadan lecture over the weekend, instead urged the people of the state to use the Ramadan month to pray for the success of his administration and an end to insecurity in the country.
“God has blessed us with the month of Ramadan to ask for those things that are crucial to our existence, the first should be the progress of our State, while we also pray for the country to overcome insecurity.
“It is my belief that God Almighty will not desert us and our prayers are heard, let us keep the tempo of our prayer up, it shall be well in Allah’s name.
“The ranting of the opposition elements in the state however should not be seen as anything serious that can distract us, we are resolute to deliver on our campaign promises and those are the major pacts we made with the people, we will not let them down, we will not allow the noise of distractors get to us.”
The programme organized by Hon. Abdullah AbdulRasaq Ademola (Omo Sheu), representing Ibadan South-East 1 State constituency held at Elekuro Ibadan.
It was attended by leaders of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State, political appointees, members of the State House of Assembly, party supporters and hundreds of Islamic faithful, who stormed the 4th Annual Ramadan Lecture.
