The Governor of Oyo state; Seyi Makinde has revealed his mother’s reaction when he decided to go into politics. He made this known during a thanksgiving service at St David’s Anglican Church Cathedral, Ijomu, Akure, Ondo State.
“When I wanted to go into politics, my two mothers, Mama Akure and Mama Ibadan, doubted me. They called me late in the night and told me in Akure and Ibadan dialects that if politicians give you anything, do not take.
“They said this because of their belief that no godly person should go into politics. If my mother can doubt me, it means I should not worry if an outsider does the same.
“But I am standing here before you to say that a godly person can go into politics and do well.”
