Don't Die Because of Us - Makinde Tells Youths
The Governor of Oyo state Engr Seyi Makinde has admonished youths in the country that their life worth more than dying for any politicians. He admonished youths to be cautious of their actions because politicians are friends and youths should not be killing themselves because of political difference or difference in ideology.
Makinde made this known during the wedding ceremony of one of the sons of former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, advised people fighting over politics and religion to have a rethink. He advised those who intend to die because of politicians to have a change of mind. He then cautioned that as Nigeria moves towards the 2023 general elections, no one should fight or die because of any politician.
“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. I want to congratulate Olamide and Oluwalonigba. This is the beginning of a journey and I pray that it will produce male and female children”.
