If Governor Seyi Makinde is elected to a second term in office in 2023, according to the Oyo State branch of the All Progressives Congress[ APC ], security in the state will be completely out of control.
The party made this claim in a statement made accessible to journalists in Ibadan on Monday and released by the State Secretary, Alhaji Tajudeen Olanite.
The governor was accused by the opposition party of utilizing state resources to support thugs who have been implicated in the murder of certain state residents.
The APC came out against a threat to assassinate Senator Teslim Kolawole Folarin, who is also the head of the Senate Committee on Local Content and the party’s candidate for governor of the state in 2023.
He added that Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi, fondly called ‘Auxiliary’, who was appointed in February 2020 by Makinde as the chairman of the disciplinary committee for the Park Management System of the Oyo State Government, issued the threat to Folarin’s life in a viral video and the governor was silent on it.
According to the party, the threat to Folarin’s life by Auxiliary has become a matter of public knowledge via video clips that have gone viral on the social media space within the past few days.

The statement read in part, “Governor Seyi Makinde does not deserve a second term in office. During this outgoing first term of his, he has made our dear state retrogress in terms of thuggery and hooliganism, which the immediate past governor, the late Senator Abiola Ajimobi, tamed effectively for eight years.
So, if Auxiliary and his men can be going around to make people cry during the first term of Governor Makinde, who wants a second term in office, the situation will definitely be worse if he wins the second term. The reign of impunity will go to the next level, which will definitely be a monumental setback for Oyo State. We should not allow this to happen.
