Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has revealed that he could not have won the 2019 and 2023 gubernatorial elections if the Nigerian Army was partial.

Governor Makinde made this declaration while receiving the Chief of Army Staff, Major-General Taoreed Abiodun Lagbaja, who paid a courtesy call to his office at the Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan on Tuesday.

Governor Makinde said the level of professionalism displayed by the officers on duty during the 2019 governorship election could not be overemphasised. He then pledged that his government would continue to maintain a cordial relationship with the Army.
