Gov. Makinde Declares His Church Official Church Of The State



Oyo state Governorship and National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal will on today, Monday deliver judgement on the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its governorship candidate, Chief Adebayo Adelabu, challenging the victory of Governor Seyi Makinde in the March 9 election.

Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has said that his church, the Cathedral of St Peter, Aremo in Ibadan, Oyo State, would, henceforth, be the official church for all government activities in the state.

Africa News24 (AN24) reports that the state governor made this known during a thanksgiving service held for him by the church.

Makinde also used the opportunity to promise to run an all-inclusive government and said it was the prayers of the churches and those who wanted him as the governor that were answered.

”Now that your prayers have been answered, I’m here and ready to serve the people.

”I implore the church to keep on praying for my administration to succeed,” he said.
