Oyo state Governor, Seyi Makinde as said figthing over politicians or religion is wrong citing the wedding ceremony between ex-Governor Ayo Fayose’s son and bride.
The Governor who attended the wedding ceremony yesterday in Lagos, acknowleged the presence of past Ekiti Governors, and then said, all three have ruled the state before (including presently) and they won under different paqarties. He went on to say, no one deserves to lose his or her life because of a politician.
Speaking on the issue of religion, he cited the new couple, saying one is from a Christian background, and the other from a Muslim background.
“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.”
