Seyi Makinde Must Be Prepared To Accept Constructive Criticism – ALGON

Seyi MakindeAssociation of Local Governments Chairmen of Nigeria ALGON, Oyo State chapter, has begged Governor Seyi Makinde to be prepared to take constructive criticism because no administration can thrive without a formidable opposition.

ALGON also urged him to obey the subsisting judgment of the Oyo State High Court and the Supreme Court judgment which stops state governors from dissolving democratically elected chairmen, begging him to nullify his order of dissolution of local governments in the state.

ALGON added that they wish Makinde a successful tenure as governor.

It read, “Without the supremacy of rule of law, which your Excellency is one of the beneficiaries, our Society will be worst for it, as the rule of men will reign supreme.”

“It will not therefore be out of place, to right the wrong of the past by your administration.”

“The recipe of the electoral storm is over in Oyo State with the judgement of the Supreme Court which affirmed Your Excellency’s election as the Governor of Oyo State.”

“No doubt, battle must be fought and won but the winner must also be magnanimous in victory. In the spirit of sportsmanship, your Excellency must see your victory as victory for the people of Oyo State and not to a section of people, based on political, religious or tribal affiliations, as a father to all.”

“We wish your Excellency a successful tenure of office as we pray for the divine wisdom for you to piloting the affairs of our pace-setter state.”
