Governor Oluwaseyi Makinde of Oyo state has said he has no ambition to contest the presidential position in 2023.
Oluwaseyi Makinde made this disclosure in a statement made available to journalists by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa.
Oluwaseyi Makinde added that it was unthinkable that the governor who has cautioned his supporters against mounting a second-term campaign for him, would launch a 2023 presidential campaign at this period.
“This is clearly the antics of purveyors of social media lapdogs, who are merely seeking to distract well-meaning people of Oyo state from the joy occasioned by the well-deserved promotion, to the Premier League, of the Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC).
“We believe that this fraudulent post alluded to the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde is the handiwork of opposition elements, as APC’s social media lapdogs widely posted the fake news on their social media accounts.
“It is the usual practice of naysayers and detractors to seek to mix sour grapes in the basket of fruits, at a time when well-meaning citizens are celebrating.
