How I Failed Many Times Before Becoming Governor - Seyi Makinde Speaks (Updated: Sunday, 24th April 2022, 03:34 PM)


‘Seyi Makinde, the Oyo State Governor, has urged fresh graduates of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, to be resilient so as to able to overcome challenges in life.

The governor said he was resilient and determined to succeed, adding that this was why he helped him to win after several failures recorded in his political adventure.

The governor said this at the 14th combined special convocation for admission to higher and honorary degrees of LAUTECH.

Makinde said, “So, you will need resilience to recover quickly from challenging or disappointing situations and try again. Without resilience, some of us would not be where we are today. I was a successful businessman before I decided to go into politics.

 “Like you, I faced a new terrain. I failed so many times at it. But each failure was a call to try a new strategy. Did I feel like quitting sometimes? Yes. But resilience kept me going. And today, here I am addressing you as the Visitor to this university and Governor of Oyo State.”

The governor also urged Nigerians to make wise electoral decisions, saying wrong electoral choices were capable of ruining the future of the younger ones.
