Don’t lose your life because of us politicians – Gov Makinde tells Nigerians

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has cautioned Nigerians against fighting one another on behalf of politicians.

The governor made the call in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Taiwo Adisa, on Saturday shortly after attending the wedding of former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose’s son.

It would be recalled that Makinde and Fayose had few months ago locked-horns over the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West region.

But one week before the Special National Convention of the PDP, Makinde however stated that whatever misunderstanding he had with Fayose has been put behind them.

Governor Makinde who noted the presence of the present Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Yayemi who also doubles as the Chairman, Nigerian Governors’ Forum, and erstwhile governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni at the wedding, said it should serve as a lesson to Nigerians.

He said: “If you look at the former governors in Ekiti State – Governor Segun Oni, Governor Ayo Fayose, and the incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi, they have governed the state at one time or the other but they were not in the same party. So, those of you who want to die because of us politicians, be careful”.

Adding that: “Politics is not something that should cause anybody to lose his or her life. We are moving towards the electioneering period, and I just want to use this opportunity to appeal to you all.

“If you also look at this marriage, the bride and groom are from Christian and Muslim families. So, people who also want to always fight on religious grounds should have a rethink,” Makinde said.
