Thus, using this opportunity to seek continuous prayers and support for Oyo state governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde to come victorious in 2023 election.

“In our collective efforts to progress as a state and country at large, we must all rise above our perceived differences which pit brothers and sisters against themselves. Love and tolerance will take us.
“Importantly, we need to move away from the path of disunity, mutual suspicion, discrimination, and injustice to make any progress.
“God’s extraordinary act of love for mankind should be cherished, celebrated and sustained” KSO said.
