Former aide of Governor Seyi Makinde has commended his ex principal and leader over his performance in office in the first 100 days under Omituntun 2.0.
The ex Director General of Oyo State Liaison Office in Abuja and Lagos disclosed to journalists in a statement on Saturday that Governor has sustained the momentum of excellent performance amidst serious economic hardship.
Makinde who won his reelection for a second term in the 2023 governorship election was sworn in for a second term of office on May 29 and would have completely his first 100 days in office on September 10.
Ajani who recalled Makinde’s first 100 days in office during his first term tagged ‘Omituntun 1.0 noted that one of the most remarkable tasks carried out in line with the governor’s commitment to security of the state was the procurement of 100 unit of vehicles to bolster security operation.
He disclosed that the governor has again ordered the procurement of another set of 100 vehicles to further fortify the state’s security architecture among other notable programs in the first 100 days of his second while nicknaming Makinde as ‘Mr 100 over 100.’
Overwhelmed by the governor’s sustenance of what he called ‘aggressive infrastructural drive, Ajani said, Makinde’s flagged off of the dualization of 8.3km Akobo, Ojurin/Odogbo Barracks Olounda Abaa Junction within the first week of his second term when other governors were still basking in the euphoria of their electoral victories was almost unbelievable.
While also describing Makinde as ‘Mr No Nonsense, Ajani alluded to the fact that his personal discipline and integrity has continued to rub off positively on the transformation of Oyo state noting that the Governor’s shoes were daily becoming bigger to wear by whoever his successor would be.
The former President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria noted that the governor had also carried out projects commissioning within the last 100 days including an electric power project in Ona-ara local government implying that Makinde has also sustained his ‘reward for success is more work’s mantra.
“Governor Makinde’s first 100 days under Omititun 2.0 has been very remarkable, maybe because of his astonishing achievements during his first term, some of us are no longer surprised at his success rate and winning streaks.
“There’s no gainsaying that Governor Makinde hit the ground running immediately upon assumption of his second term of office and within a period other governors were still basking in the euphoria of their electoral victories, he already started flagging off and commissioning projects almost immediately.
“It is a pride for anyone who worked for and with His Excellency successfully because with his personal principles as ‘Mr no nonsense, unbended integrity, and demand on those working with him, for me I see him as a success propeller.
“With his achievements so far in just 100 days in office particularly procurement of 100 unit of vehicles to boost security operation in the state and other projects flag offs and commissioning, he has earned himself a pass mark and in my assessment, it is safe to nickname the governor ‘Mr 100 over 100.
“So, I want to passionately appeal for more support for governor Makinde. He is not perfect, he is not near perfection but he is consistent and consciously working towards perfection with his selfless approach to governance.” Ajani stated.
