Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State on Saturday said that he has no godfather.

Makinde made this declaration while speaking in Ibadan, the state capital.

Recalls that Makinde in 2019 won the gubernatorial election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The election was won after a coalition was formed with some political parties who jettisoned their ambitions and supported Makinde.

Former Governor of the state, Senator Rasidi Ladoja had in 2019, prevailed on candidates of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) Barrister Sharafadeen Abiodun Alli, candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC) Senator Olufemi Lanlehin and candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) to support Makinde who later defeated the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Makinde has, however, insisted on Saturday that he has no godfather.

He said that he has God and people of the state as his backbone.

Makinde spoke on Saturday during a program on the Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State (BCOS).
