In response to Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress winning the recently concluded presidential election, the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has discussed why the APC presidential candidate won the election in Oyo State, according to a news report made available by Punch papers this evening.



The governor said during an interview on Splash FM’s State Affairs with Desmond Obilo that he was pleased to have been a part of the process that redrew the electoral map of Nigeria that he had conducted a survey to determine the winner prior to the election. And after conducting his survey, he discovered that Bola Tinubu’s supporters had resolved to support him because Oyo State is located in the South-West and has a candidate from that region. After eight years of the presidency being held in the North, the supporters of Bola Tinubu want it to move to the South.


He continued by saying that after conducting this research, he informed the PDP’s Atiku Abubakar and the entire party that Bola Tinubu would become the country’s next leader.


He said, “I did a survey and knew that a lot of people would vote for Tinubu because our people are agitating for a country where there is fairness, equity and justice. I even told Atiku Abubakar and pointed it out to our party. You know, you allow people to express themselves. A lot of our people, that is what they decided to do. They decided that, look, we want after eight years of presidency in the North, they want it to come to the South and this place being South-West, one of theirs was a candidate, so they supported one of their own”.
