According to him, the government of Engr  Makinde is masses friendly and need prayers and the  support of the people and religious body to make him achieve greater results  in his administration, especially  his victory at the supreme court.

” Governor Seyi Makinde since his assumption of office has embarked on  laudable programmes which has brought peace and stability to  the people and the state.

“In the area of education, environment  and other infrastructural development, governor Makinde has done well. God will answer our prayers for him, he added.

The Liaison Officer to the state governor, Egbeda/Ona Ara constituency, Hon Adegboyega  Akinlolu  said the prayer was important  to seek divine intervention  for the governor in his quest to move the state to greater heights.

He  expressed confidence and hope that God Almighty will vindicate the governor at the supreme court, just as he  prayed God to grant Hon Fadeyi the grace to achieve more success in office.

CAN Chairman in the area Rev. Akinkade JP in his short sermon and prayer   expressed confidence that God will answer the  prayers  because governor Makinde is the ordained person chosen  to lead the state to greater heights.

In his speech, the  Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon. Abiodun Mohammed Fadeyi  admonished the people of Ona Ara State Constituency  to move closer to God irrespective of religious background   in order to allow greater development come to the area.

Hon Fadeyi who observed that the area is fast yielding to development said  new things would continue to  spring up by the day adding that   just recently they just commissioned Access Bank bank  in the area.

The lawmaker who pledged to facilitate more developmental projects to Ona  Ara  called on the people to forget the past and allow them move forward.

“I want suggest that this kind of prayers should be organised every year to seek the face of God Almighty for this government, our local government and the good people of our local government.”

“As you can see God has good plan for this local government and  the people, that’s  the reason new development are springing up by the day.

As a matter of fact, governor Makinde hails from Ona Ara Local, he is an indigene of the council, so you can see that we are  lucky. Just recently we commisioned  a new generation bank and more are coming. That is why we need more prayers to sustain  our selves and move together.
