Seyi Makinde has labelled those who condemned his travel to the United States as airheads.
Makinde who returned to Ibadan on Monday evening, said this in a statement at the annual interfaith service to mark the beginning of 2021, after members of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) criticized his travelling to another country while the state crumbles under the weight of insecurity.
He said, “We are starting this year in good spirits. We are confident that this year, the seeds we planted in the previous year will yield good fruits. Last year, I didn’t know where the International Airport was from February till December. We all stayed together to experience the pandemic.”
“On the 30th, I decided to spend the New Year in the United States of America, and before I came back, critics were saying I went to America to enjoy myself while Oyo State was burning. My belief is, they were criticising me because they had no other thing to say. Well, I am back, and we will continue to serve the people of Oyo State.”
