2023: I Have No Presidential Ambition – Gov Makinde

Published

on

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has stated that he has no plans to run for President in 2023.

This information was provided to DAILY POST by Makinde’s Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa, in a statement.

On May 29, 2019, Makinde was elected Governor of Oyo State, but he has stated that he has no plans to run for President of Nigeria in 2023.

In a statement released on Monday on behalf of the Governor, Adisa encouraged members of the public to avoid a banner ad suggesting Makinde is running for President in 2023.

He referred to the news’ sponsors as detractors, claiming that they are attempting to divert the attention of the people of Oyo State.

He went on to say that launching a presidential campaign in 2023 at this time would be unfathomable for the governor, who has warned his supporters against waging a second-term campaign for him.

“This is clearly the antics of purveyors of social media lapdogs, who are merely seeking to distract well-meaning people of Oyo State from the joy occasioned by the well-deserved promotion, to the Premier League, of the Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC).

“We believe that this fraudulent post alluded to the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde is the handiwork of opposition elements, as APC’s social media lapdogs widely posted the fake news on their social media accounts.

“It is the usual practice of naysayers and detractors to seek to mix sour grapes in the basket of fruits, at a time when well-meaning citizens are celebrating.

“Let it be stated clearly, however, that Governor Makinde has no hand in any such campaign for the Presidency, as he has always stated that tomorrow only belongs to God.

“It is unthinkable that the governor, who has cautioned supporters against mounting a second-term campaign for him, would launch a 2023 presidential campaign at this period.

“Therefore, we urge members of the public to ignore the fake news and see it as the shenanigans of a distressed opposition, which continues to show its desperation to retake power at all cost”.
