Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has enjoined politicians across the country to remember that power belongs to the people.
Makinde made this disclosure on Sunday.
The governor who was reacting to the victory of Senator Ademola Adeleke in Saturday’s election in Osun State advised his colleagues to remember that it is the people that have the power.
ecocitytv recalls that Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was announced winner of the governorship election.
Makinde who is the only PDP governor in the South West region while reacting said what happened on Saturday was similar to what happened in Oyo State in 2019.
Makinde used the opportunity to congratulate the governor-elect and also hailed the voters across the 30 local governments of Osun State for standing by PDP.
Makinde in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa added that he was happy that the PDP flag would be raised in another state in the region.
He said, “It is great to have a second PDP flag flying in the South-West and this victory teaches all politicians an important lesson- that truly, power resides with the people.
“The power of the people will continue to triumph, the earlier politicians realise this fact, the better for our democracy.”
