Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has said this is no time to focus so much on who occupies the presidential seat rather, it’s a time Nigerians need adequate security and restructuring of the country.
The governor who taunted those he described as running around the Country with their Presidential was not paying attention to the Country’s needs at this time.
In a statement released by the Governor’s Cheif Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa who represented the governor at the handover of 33 operational vehicles and 396 motorcycles to the Oyo State Security Agency, popularly known as Operation Amotekun.
“I have heard some of our political leaders jostling around and saying they want to become the president of Nigeria in 2023.
“I think what we need at this stage is to secure our people and restructure Nigeria. It does not matter who is the president in Abuja. In a restructured Nigeria, every corner of the country will feel the impact of the government. That is what we need.
“May God protect those running around for the presidency till 2022. By that time, we will meet and, by then, we will get to know whether it is restructured Nigeria or Yoruba presidency that we need.”
Although he did not mention Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress leader had been travelling to some parts of the country while his foot soldiers have been going round to solicit support for his presidential ambition.
Makinde lauded Amotekun, saying the impact of the security agency was being felt all over the state.
“If we cannot get state police now, this country will get there. We have community policing, but we need to do better than that. But, in the absence of the state police, we have our own Amotekun Corps, and the operatives are doing very well, “he added.
Makinde is one of the South West Governors who takes the issue of insecurity very seriously and to support the fight against violence and curb crime in that state had given 25 vehicles to the police and Operation Burst to combat insecurity in the state.
