Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State who was sworn in for his second term in office on Sunday has called for support of the people to deliver on his electoral promises.
The Governor made this call at the swearing-in ceremony which took place at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, Ibadan, where he also pledged to put aside his self-interest and serve the state to the best of his ability.
His words: “Four years ago, I took an oath before God and you, the good people of the state. I pledged to put aside my self-interest to serve you to the best of my ability. Today, I stand before you to renew that pledge and reaffirm these solemn words.
“And as we usher in Omituntun 2.0 on this day, I see another opportunity to reflect on our first term in office, recall our promises made and promises kept, and renew those promises you have given us another opportunity to keep. We have worked hard to stimulate and accelerate economic and social development in the state.
“And so, as we face another four years with this mandate that you have given us, we again, in all humility, ask for your support. With your backing, we know our vision for Omituntun 2.0 will become a reality.”
