An unidentified politician in Oyo has expressed displeasure to his fellow politicians in the state over Governor Seyi Makinde's attitude towards him.
The politician could be seen in a viral video ranting that he worked tirelessly for the election that brought Governor Makinde to power, adding that the governor has not compensated him for his contribution.
While the ranting was ongoing, the politicians he was complaining to calmly sat and listened to him without saying anything.
He said Governor Makinde's childhood friend, simply identified as Wasiu, has not been helped by the governor either.
The politicians went on to urge the person behind the camera to continue filming the session and share it on social media afterwards.
He said he is not a mad man, adding that it is not appropriate for Governor Makinde to be enjoying taxpayers' money alone while he suffers.

"This video right here summarises one of the many issues with Nigeria. Unqualified people feel entitled to political positions and they see it as opportunity to alleviate themselves from poverty."
"That's the problem with most Nigerian politicians, when they got the power, they always forgot where they're coming from.
"Instead, Makinde should've engaged him and keep him busy, if he mess up, he'll has something to hold on with.
"Oodé Ní Gbogbo Won".
"But bro Wasiu didn't go to school na? Should we give him appointment meant for graduates? Bro Wasiu was doing omo igboro when seyi was in engineering school!!"
