Oyo Guber Hopeful, Seyi Makinde Berates Gov Ajimobi over Campaign Office Raid


Following Tuesday’s raid of his campaign office at the Idi-Ape axis of Ibadan, Oyo guber aspirant, Engineer Seyi Makinde has lambasted the Oyo state Government who was alleged to be the brain behind the raid.
Speaking in Ibadan at a meeting held at his Omi Titun Campaign office on Wednesday, Seyi Makinde narrated how a team of fully armed policemen stormed his office claiming they were working on a tip off that the campaign office has been converted to a store for hiding ammunitions and hoodlums.
The politician who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party stated that nothing incriminating was found in his office but that the policemen did the contrary when they harassed and wounded some of his campaign staff and supporters.
In a statement made available to Street Journal, Seyi Makinde said ‘I slaute the unbending spirit of our supporters who were physically on ground. I am further encouraged to press on in this struggle to entrench verifiable progress and visible development in our dear Oyo State come 2015 as opposed to a government of wanton arrogance, egregious elitism and husband/wife buffonery. I strongly believe that power belongs to God and He bestows it on whom He pleases.
Seyi Makinde further disclosed that he has decided to petition the National Security Adviser as he doesn’t want to take with kid’s glove all the threats against him.
He alleged that his campaign staffers had been having incessant eath threats by the NURTW in the State and that some weeks ago he was a guest of the State Security Service who questioned him on what he thinks were not relevant.
In Oyo State it is presumed that Seyi Makinde is gaining political strength as he appears a formidable candidate among the few that have shown interest in the guber race under the PDP.
The State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi is also seeking a second term.
