He said that he would serve for another four years in office if the people of the State desired it.
“I announce that I have picked up the Expression of Interest and Nomination forms for a second term as the elected Governor of the good people of Oyo State.
“If the good people of Oyo State desire it, we will serve for four more years,” he stated.
