Omituntun Initiative in the Diaspora (OID), a group of Nigerian professionals in the diaspora supporting the Governor Seyi Makinde-led government, has congratulated him on his victory in the just-concluded gubernatorial election in the state.

In a congratulatory message by OID Convener, Mr Moses Eledan, the group described Makinde’s resounding win as a testimonial to the confidence and trust that the good people of Oyo State have in his stewardship and vision to continue with his giant strides for good governance.

Eledan said the election results reflected the wishes of the people of the state as the majority of the voters have overwhelmingly voted to re-elect the people’s governor, who represents the government of the people for the common good of all as against some power grabbers that place selfish interest above citizens’ welfare.

He emphasised that Makinde ran an impressive campaign with his progressive values of fairness, equity, justice, and honesty based on his vision for the citizens as outlined in his manifesto, Omituntun 2.0.

“The governor’s victory is an inspiration to everyone, especially the younger generations, and the outcome of the election demonstrated people’s will, hope, freedom and a true democracy in action,” he added.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Eledan said: “Makinde is a progressive leader and a promise keeper who promises what he will do and does beyond what he promises. We commend the effort and support of all members of OID, SMV, and GSM Network for their selfless services and contribution towards making the victory of Makinde’s re-election a reality.”

The group also applauded the good people of Oyo State for re-electing the people’s the governor for a second term in office to serve and consolidate on his numerous achievements that have touched the lives of the citizens tremendously.

Eledan also appreciated God for the victory and stated that the group is proud to be associated with Makinde who is the founder and visionary leader of Omituntun.

“Makinde has inspired optimism through proven achievements that under his stewardship, the state will continue to experience growth, stability, and sustainable development in all areas of governance.

“Once again, we sincerely congratulate the governor for the overwhelming victory for his re-election. We will continue to support and engage the government with innovative ideas aimed at advancing societal upliftment for the development of Oyo State. We pray that God will grant him good health, strength, and wisdom for more innovative accomplishments as he renders the service of good governance to take the State to imitable heights,” he said.
