Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, says he won’t stay in the gutters with his detractors.
Makinde stated this in a recent interview with newsmen.
While arguing that his street credibility is still intact, he maintained that he can volunteer to walk the street of Oje with anybody to test it.
“From my experience in public service, which basically is 18 months now, I know people will try all their best to distract you but you need to stay focused. Otherwise, we will lose the people we are supposed to serve and deliver value to. So, I have chosen not to stay in the gutters with those folks trying to distract us; leave them to whatever it is they are doing. I am glad that we do have street credibility.
“If they think we don’t, I will volunteer to walk on the street of Oje with any of them and we will see who has the credibility. So, the people are appreciative of what we are doing and they know precisely what is going on,”he said.
