Presidential Polls: I Stood For Justice And Equity – Gov Makinde Reveals Why Tinubu Won In Oyo

Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has disclosed why the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu won the state during the polls.

The governor expressed happiness to be part of the process that “redrew the electoral map of Nigeria.”

Makinde, who spoke on Saturday when he was featured on Splash FM’s State Affairs with Desmond Obilo, said he stood for equity and fairness.

Tinubu polled 449,884 votes to defeat Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party who polled 182,977 votes in Oyo.

“I supported fairness, justice and equity. I supported a united Nigeria, a Nigeria that gives opportunity to every part of this country
,” Makinde said.

When he was told that he delivered his ward to Tinubu, Makinde said, “He (Tinubu) defeated me out there. How do you deliver your ward?”

He said democracy was about people expressing themselves through the ballot, saying a lot of people in Oyo voted who they wanted. “That is what they decide to do.”

“You know, you allow people to express themselves. A lot of our people, that is what they decided to do. They decided that, look, we want after eight years of presidency in the North, they want it to come to the South and this place being South-West, one of theirs was a candidate, so they supported one of their own.”

The governor says when one goes into a contest, he or she has to situate things appropriately, adding, “We had a survey before that election; we knew that a lot of our people are agitating for a country where there is fairness, equity and justice. I pointed it out to our party.”

“I am glad that I am a part of a process that redrew the electoral map of Nigeria. That arrogance, I believe with the result of last Saturday’s election, is basically behind us. Now we know that people will have to seek alignment. If you want to rule this country, you are not just going to say oh, because I am from a certain part of this country, then that is the only qualification I require to rule this country. Now, you have to build bridges, reach out to others.”

APC Tells DSS To Arrest Enenche, Dino Melaye

The Department of State Services has been urged to arrest the General Overseer of Dunamis Church, Paul Enenche over his ‘inciting sermon’ on the pulpit last Sunday.
All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council made the call Monday.
Also, the APC PCC  asked security agencies to arrest two spokespersons for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, Dino Melaye and Dele Momodu, for allegedly attempting to heat the polity through their utterances.
The PCC Special Adviser on Media and Strategic Communications, Dele Alake, made the call in Abuja on Monday during a press conference.
He said, “We note with utmost concern those inciting comments and call to violence by some spokespersons for the opposition, especially those from the Peoples Democratic Party. We are particularly concerned and call on the State Security Services and the Nigeria Police Force to immediately restrain persons such as Dino Melaye, Dele Momodu and a certain Pastor Paul Enenche of Dunamis Church from their clear call to violence.
“How can a supposed man of God be issuing threat on the pulpit because the person he and his brother endorsed is not winning? How can you desecrate the sanctity of the pulpit on the altar of partisanship? That is an abomination.
“Melaye’s tweet threatening violence, Momodu going on the TV to announce a purported winner and Enenche’s hate speech from the pulpit violate every law of the land. They should not go scot-free. The Christians community in this nation should even rise up to call him to order before the invitation by security agencies. We encourage the DSS to do their work by apprehending and restraining these people calling for violence to reduce the tension.”
Also speaking, a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, described the Dunamis preacher’s action as a disgrace to the Pentecostal mission society.
He said, “I was invited by the DSS for a tweet I made. We are all aware of that. Therefore I see Eneche’s outburst as an insult to so many pastors, particularly Pentecostals like myself. That is because when this violence they are calling for begins, they will run away and leave hapless Nigerians to face it.
“What the opposition is doing is trying to heat up the polity and intimidate our supporters.”
