Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has said he will support the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, only if the party decides to do the needful.

Makinde, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, Samuel Ortom of Benue State and two other governors had repeatedly demanded the resignation if the National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, and that somebody from the South should replace him to ensure fairness.

Makinde, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa, who quoted him while speaking on Fresh FM 105.9 programme; Political Circuit, said he would not support Atiku if Ayu remained the chairman.

Asked about the crisis within the PDP at the national level, which has seen him and four other PDP governors boycott the campaign of Atiku, Makinde said, “ I would only support Atiku if the party does the needful.

“The party must demonstrate that it can ensure fairness and justice within its system before seeking to implement same on the nation.”

Makinde also declared that his administration had been able to deliver accelerated development to the state in the last three and a half years, adding that his performance justified his re-election bid.

The governor stated that with the achievements his administration recorded across the four service point areas of education, security, health and economic expansion through agribusiness and infrastructure, he deserved to be re-elected by the people of the state.

He also said that if re-elected in 2023, he would go on to deliver Omituntun 2.0, which he said would centre on delivering sustainable development to the people of the state.
