Oyo governor, Makinde speaks on second term ambition

Governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde has stated that he would only seek re-election in 2023 if it is the will of God for him.

This was stated by Seyi Makinde while speaking at the Christ Revival Miracle Church, Molete, Ibadan, on Sunday.

Makinde said he prayed for God’s guidance before the 2019 election.

“One of the pastors, while praying, talked about the first and second tenure. Well, I came out in 2019 to tell the people that I wanted to become the governor but I prayed to God that only his will should be done,” he said.

“And now, I don’t even know if it is the will of God for me to even seek or push out for a second tenure. The only prayer I want you to be praying is that God’s will alone should be done in my life.

“On a final note, let us participate in politics and governance as children of God. It is through our participation that this nation will get what it deserves.”

Makinde said Christians have to participate in politics to enhance good governance and promote sanity in the political system.

“When the special visitor, pastor Moji Alawiye, was speaking, she was concerned about those who will build our nation. The secret is, you children of God have to participate in politics and governance,” he said.

“Yes, it is something very difficult because the political terrain is polluted. We don’t want to be yoked with unbelievers but there is no how we can build our nation without dealing with unbelievers. And there is an example of this in the bible.

“Look at what the son of Eli did at the temple but Samuel was in the same place and God brought him out because of the assignment He wanted him to carry out. The same thing with Joseph; he had dreamt and seen that all his elder brothers bowed before him but he was sold as a slave and that journey made him become the prime minister in Egypt.

“So, don’t entertain fears in your mind. We must go out there, participate in politics, and  Nigeria will be great again.”
