Governor Makinde stated that by 2022, Nigerians will find out if it is restructuring we want or a Yoruba presidency.


Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has stated that by 2022 Nigerians will be able to decide whether or not they want restructuring or a Yoruba presidency.

Some Nigerians have been clamoring for power to be rotated to the Southern region of the nation in the year 2023.

Whereas some have called for the Igbos to be given an opportunity, others have insisted that the Presidency needs to be given to the South-West.

Speaking at the handover of 33 operational vehicles and 396 bikes to the Oyo State Security Agency, popularly referred to as Operation Amotekun in Ibadan on Tuesday, December 15, governor Makinde averred that what Nigeria actually wants right now’s restructuring and not where the following president would come from. He concluded his argument by saying by 2022, Nigerians would be able to determine whether or not it is a Yoruba president they need or restructuring.

In his words

“I have heard some of our political leaders jostling around and saying they want to become the president of Nigeria in 2023.

I think what we need at this stage is to secure our people and restructure Nigeria. It does not matter who is the president in Abuja. In a restructured Nigeria, every corner of the country will feel the impact of the government. That is what we need.

May God protect those running around for the presidency till 2022. By that time, we will meet and, by then, we will get to know whether it is restructured Nigeria or Yoruba presidency that we need.”
