Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde has appealed to Nigerians to not die for politicians.


The Oyo state governor made the remarks while attending the wedding of Ayo Fayose’s son, months after a squabble with the former governor of Ekiti over the Peoples Democratic Party’s leadership in the South-West area.

Makinde said the wedding should serve as a lesson to Nigerians, citing the attendance of Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum and current Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, and former Governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni.

Makinde 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.

“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.”
