The Chief Press Secretary to the Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, Taiwo Adisa on Saturday tackled the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 election in the state, Adebayo Adelabu over the claim of non-performance he leveled against Makinde.
Adisa, while reacting to the claims described Adelabu as someone who has been “blinded by unbridled ambition to govern the state” and lost touch with current reality in the state.

Adelabu had on Friday alleged that the governor of the state, Seyi Makinde has not been fulfilling any of his campaign promises, vowing to dislodge him in 2023.
But Makinde’s aide said the governor has in the last one year and four months, placed the state on a sound footing for economic expansion and put in place policies and programmes that are lifting the people from poverty to prosperity.
“14 months into the tenure, notwithstanding the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, which rattled the world and slowed down the pace of developmental works, the administration of Engineer Makinde has been busy recording one great landmark achievement after the other”, he said.
