2023: Gov Makinde Says Restructuring Will Impact Nigerians More Than A Yoruba Presidency



Seyi Makinde

Seyi Makinde, Oyo State Governor, has reacted to the growing calls for a Yoruba presidency in 2023.

In a statement by Taiwo Adisa, his Chief Press Secretary, on Tuesday, Makinde said restructuring Nigeria and providing security will impact Nigerians more than a Yoruba Presidency.

He said 2022 will however, prove if a restructured Nigeria is what is needed to salvage the country of the myriad of problems or a Yoruba presidency.

“I have heard some of our political leaders jostling around and saying they want to become the president of Nigeria in 2023,” he said.

“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.”

The Governor further 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.
