The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, as he marks his 54th birthday, describing him as an exceptionally patriotic Nigerian.
A statement issued by Hon. Debo Ologunagba, its National Publicity Secretary, Friday said Makinde is “a highly organized leader, down-to-earth administrator, very intelligent and resourceful technocrat, tactical politician and grassroot mobiliser with an extraordinary capacity for leadership.”
It added: “GSM as he is fondly called, Governor Makinde embodies the virtues of Christmas as a harbinger of peace and hope. He is the beloved of the people; a very humble and caring personality, who maintains his bond with the lowly despite his towering attainments.
“His commitment and drive to deliver is evinced in the array of landmark human capital and infrastructural development projects in critical sectors including power generation, agriculture, healthcare, education, road infrastructure, industrialization, water resources among other legacy milestones achieved within a space of two and half years in office.
“Governor Makinde’s giant stride in the Oyo state Independent Power Project, as well as the newly launched massive investment in agriculture and agribusiness, stand him out as a leader with a passion for enduring development.
