Makinde Never Worked For Tinubu – Oyo APC Declares
Meanwhile, the Oyo State chapter of (APC) has said there was never a time when the state Governor, Seyi Makinde, worked for the party.
Naija News understands there were speculations that Makinde, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), canvassed votes for APC presidential candidate, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, during the 2023 presidential election.
Recall that Makinde and former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, and other PDP G-5 members refused to support their party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, during the last election.
Notably, Oyo is one of the states cleared by Tinubu during the February 25th election.
Speaking, however, on Tuesday, APC chairman in Oyo State, Issac Omodewu, said the State belonged to APC and that Makinde never worked in favour of the party as speculated in some quarters.
