Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has made it clear that he is ready to resign his position and leave the government house with his bag the way he came in.
“As I stand before you, if I am being asked to leave the seat as the governor, I do not have a pin to go and pick in my office in the Secretariat. I go there with my bag and go back to my house with my bag.”
Governor Makinde, who spoke today, March 17, at the Pan Yoruba Congress held at Mapo Hall, Ibadan, asked: “what do they want to do to Seyi Makinde?”
He emphasized that he would exit the office if that is what the people want, saying that he is not bothered about the title.
According to the governor, that is the reason he had vowed to take decisions in the best interest of the state and Yorubaland, adding that his administration had a duty to ensure that lives and property are secured.
“By virtue of my office, I can see some certain things that you cannot easily see and I stand on my honour to say that I will take decisions in the best interest of my people”, he said.
He said that at the last security meeting, he created a War Room because, he said, the issue of security is beyond rhetoric.
The governor also set up a Task Force on Security, which he chairs.
