Makinde alerts voters on activities of online fraudsters



Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Mr. Taiwo Adisa has cautioned voters within and outside the state to beware of online fraudsters, who are seeking to defraud unsuspecting members of the public by linking the governor to a phony N20,000 campaign grant.

The governor’s spokesman in a statement said that Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the so-called “Governor SeyiMakinde Foundation” which claimed it was giving away N20, 000 to help voters secure their Permanent Voter Cards.

The statement indicates that Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the phony scheme, adding that Nigerians must not be fooled by desperate folks.

The statement read: “This is to bring to the notice of voters in Oyo State and Nigeria in general that Governor SeyiMakinde of Oyo State is in no way linked to the ‘SeyiMakinde N20,000 Campaign Giveaway’ scheme being advertised online.

“The so-called giveaway is a scam intended to defraud unsuspecting voters within Oyo State and beyond. 

“It may also be an attempt to smear the good name of Governor Makinde, who is the leading candidate in the March 11, 2023, election into Agodi Government House, Ibadan, the seat of Oyo State Government.

“Whatever the intentions of the scammers are, we want to advise that such online adverts and advisories should be completely ignored, as Nigerians prepare to cast their ballots in the general elections.
