Governor Makinde releases 18-seater bus to CCII

2023: Makinde urges Nigerians to elect energetic leaders for nation’s good

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, on Wednesday, handed over an 18-seater bus to officials of the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII), in line with his promise during the inauguration ceremony of the 2021/2023 executive council of the body in Ibadan last week.

Makinde was represented by his deputy chief of staff, Majeed Mogbonjubola.

A statement by the chief press secretary to the governor, Taiwo Adisa, quoted Mogbonjubola as saying that: “Like I said earlier, we basically want to thank God for this. Few days ago, the governor was at the investiture of the new president-general of the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes and he promised to donate a bus. That’s what we are doing here today – to hand over the bus.

“The governor is a man of his words; God has empowered him to promise and fulfil and that is what we are grateful for. This is one of the kind gestures he has been showing to the people.”

He admonished the members of CCII to continue to support the Makinde-led administration and to also propagate the good news of its achievements.

“I want to send a message not only to the CCII but to the good people of Oyo State. I am advising the members of the council to go round and proclaim the good news of this administration and make the people aware of Makinde’s generosity,” he said.

Receiving the bus on behalf of the council, Oluyemisi Adeaga, the president-general, expressed happiness with the donation, stating that it will help the council to achieve its cardinal objectives of developing Ibadan and Oyo State at large.

“We are happy and glad, as this will enable our mobility, which will enhance the achievement of our cardinal points. And we want to promise that these cardinal projects will have an impact not only on Ibadanland but the entire people of the state.”
