2023: Don’t die because of a politician – Makinde warns Nigerians
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has warned Nigerians against carrying weapons to defend a politician.
Makinde, who spoke in Lagos state on Saturday, noted that no politician is worth dying.
He warned Nigerians, especially young people, that no one should lose their life supporting politicians.
Makinde, who spoke at the wedding ceremony of one of the sons of former Ekiti state governor Ayodele Fayose, advised those fighting for politics and religion to rethink .
He advised those who intend to die because of politicians to change their mind.
He then warned that as Nigeria moved towards the 2023 general election, no one should fight or die because of a politician.
“If you look at the former governors of Ekiti State – Governor Segun Oni, Governor Ayo Fayose and incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi, they ruled the state at one point or another but they weren’t in the same party. So those of you who want to die because of us politicians, be careful.
“Politics is not something that should kill someone’s life. We are heading into the election period, and I just want to take this opportunity to appeal to all of you.
“If you also look at this marriage, the bride and groom are from Christian and Muslim families. So, people who still want to fight on religious grounds should rethink.
“I want to congratulate Olamide and Oluwalonigba. It is the start of a journey and I pray that he will produce male and female children ”.
