According to Sahara Reporters, Governor Makinde made this disclosure when the Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi visited him in Ibadan, to commiserate with him over the explosion that recently happened in the state.
The Governor said: “I’m particularly grateful because the President called me. You (Obi) have reached out to me but my own party candidate, not even a call or a text message.
“I’m saying this openly so that our leaders will know that there is time for politics and time for governance and time for humanity.”
In addition, the Oyo State governor disclosed that investigation for details is still going on, noting that the explosion was caused by illegal miners that stored explosives in an environment where they shouldn’t be. He went on and noted that all the lapses that caused the incident have been looked into.
It should be recalled that prior to the 2023 presidential election, the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde and some other PDP governors known as G5, refused to support Atiku Abubakar’s presidential ambition. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
