Makinde commended for financial commitment to CCII, Ibadanland


The Oyo State governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has been commended for his financial commitment to the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) and Ibadanland.


A source within CCII said nobody can match Makinde’s financial commitment to CCII because the governor has contributed over N100 million towards the progress and development of CCII and Ibadanland.

“When Reverend Demola Moradeyo was the chairman of Ibadan week for three term, Makinde single handedly contributed nothing less than N30 million.


“Makinde also donated N25 million to CCII when Col. Nike Akerele was the chairman of Ibadan week.


“He was the first individual that his contributions has worth more than N100 million for CCII and development of Ibadanland, either dead or alive, no one has ever made such financial commitment to CCII than Makinde.


“Governor Seyi Makinde equally gave a sum 20 thousand Dollars last year when Alh. Gaphar Ojetola was the Chairman Ibadan Week Cultural Festival Planning committee not forgetting 10 Million Naira Scholarship Scheme he initiated during the inauguration Ceremony of Prince Yemisi Adeaga as CCII President General.
