2023: Make Right Electoral Choices — Makinde To Nigerians

2023: Make Right Electoral Choices — Makinde To Nigerians

Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde

The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has charged Nigerians to make the right choices during the forthcoming elections.

Makinde gave this charge in a tweet as he announced the taking down of his tweet in which he opposed the decision of the Federal Government to ban Twitter in 2021.

In a series of tweets following the ban, Makinde had suggested that the federal government’s action against Twitter was not well thought out.

While emphasising that Nigerians must make the right choice at the polls as the 2023 general elections draw he noted that for every choice, there is a consequence.

According to him, “As I take down my pinned tweet, which showed my unequivocal stand against the #TwitterBan which lasted 222 days, I would like to remind us all that our choices have consequences.

“With the 2023 elections around the corner, I hope we are prepared to make the right electoral choices.”

Makinde had on June 5, 2022, tweeted, “As leaders, we should go beyond emotional reactions to issues and think about how our actions will affect the people we lead and our international ratings socially and economically.

“Twitter has become the platform for young people and indeed all Nigerians to exercise their fundamental right to express and publish an opinion. They use the platform to complain, argue and give feedback to the government and its agencies who in turn, use these to improve policies.

“This is a fundamental point that should be kept in mind as we debate the necessity of this suspension.”
