Dr. Omololu Olunloyo, a former governor of old Oyo state, has advised Governor Seyi Makinde to efficiently handles the coalition that brought him in and listens to experienced politicians and not to civil servants who have never been in politics.
Pa Olunloyo mentioned that Senator Rashidi Ladoja and Senator Olufemi Lanlehin are among the active players in Oyo political relm and Makinde should listen to their counsels.
The elder stateman stated this in an interview with Nigerian Tribune after attending a Sufi event held in Ibadan, on Sunday.
“Every set of politician or political party make promises in their campaigns – what they can do, what they shall do. To be fair to them, the public doesn’t know many of the internal things to that government. They see some external things and they like to do some things about external things.
“Seyi Makinde has attempted a number of times to be governor and he has succeeded at last, delicately with a coalition.
“In the coalition, there are some very experienced and old politicians like Senator Rashidi Ladoja and Senator Olufemi Lanlehin. If he handles the coalition very well and listens to them very well and not to civil servants who have never been in politics, he will succeed,” Tribune quoted him as saying.
