Hon. Makinde's media personnel, Sanya Ojo, this week reacted to speculations that he took his new bride to Obudu Cattle Ranch instead of the Dubai honeymoon she'd had hoped for because he was bankrupt. Sanya Ojo said:
"Its misinformation and unfortunate for any discerning mind to nurse the insinuation that a trained and successful accountant in the person of Honourable Makinde could in any situation get involved in anything that could lead to financial recklessness. That as a thorough businessman, Honorable Makinde couldn't have in anyway spent beyond his budget or go into borrowing as being peddled by mischievous enemies. Moreover its more expensive to be in Obudu Cattle Ranch than going abroad for such things"
