Ibadan, April 27, 2021(NAN) A socio-political group, Omituntun Initiative in the Diaspora (OID), has commended Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State for his uncommon leadership style and commitment to people’s welfare.

The group gave the commendation in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Ayotomiwa Adebayo, and made available to newsmen, on Tuesday in Ibadan.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the group lauded Makinde for his developmental strides and ongoing laudable projects in the state.

It said that the governor’s uncommon leadership style and monumental achievements in the last 22 months had endeared him to the people of the state.
“We commend Gov. Makinde for his great performance in executing development projects and ongoing laudable projects in the state within 22 months in office,” it said.

The group prayed that God would continue to increase the governor in wisdom and understanding to perform beyond expectations.

It called on the people of the state to continue to support and pray for the governor in his efforts towards transforming the state and taking it to an enviable height.

NAN recalls that the group had recently described the chieftaincy title of Giade Yama of Katagum conferred on Makinde by the Emir of Katagum, Alhaji Faruk Umar, as recognition of his selfless service.

The group had described the honour as well-deserved, saying it was an attestation to the governor’s commitment to people’s welfare and service to humanity.
