Oyo: Coalition for Tinubu back Makinde’s re-election bid

Ahead of the March 11 governorship election, some Bola Tinubu support groups in Oyo State, have thrown their weight behind the re-election bid of Governor Seyi Makinde.

The groups are the Southern for Tinubu, BAT Democracy, and Yoruba Campaign for BAT and Tinubu Campaign Movement. They jointly issued a press statement in Ibadan on Friday to declare the support, which they stated was because of the outstanding performance of Makinde.

Adebayo Moronsole, the national coordinator, and Emmanuel Adesanya, the public relations officer/director of strategy, jointly signed the statement.

“Seyi Makinde should continue in office for the improved life of the people of Oyo State; therefore, the Southwest for Bola Ahmed Tinubu coalition groups are pledging our support for him and his deputy.

“The group has no fewer than 372,000 members who have their Permanent Voter Cards. Our grassroots mobilisers are now on a house-to-house campaign for the re-election of the governor.

“We have enjoyed many good works by Makinde’s administration, including peace and security in the state. We urge Oyo State citizens to support this administration’s re-election for the continuation of the good works,’’ they said.
