Gov Makinde Justifies His Absence At Atiku Flag-off Campaign

Seyi Makinde

The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, after the swearing-in of Olukayode Ariwoola as the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) on Wednesday took time to answer questions from State House correspondents said that he has been “busy” campaigning for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to win the 2023 general election.

Makinde was among the missing PDP governors as Atiku Abubakar flagged off his presidential campaign ahead of the 2023 elections in Uyo on Monday. Party members loyal to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, who Makinde identifies with, had sworn not to take part in the PDP’s presidential campaign if the national chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, refuses to resign from his position. When asked if there was still a crisis within the PDP that made him not attend the presidential campaign flag-off in Uyo, Makinde insisted he needed to be in Oyo rather than Uyo. “I have been busy at home in Oyo State campaigning for everybody.

“Uyo is not where I need to put the votes together. It is in Oyo; so I stayed in Oyo,” he said.
