Makinde Promises Peaceful cooperation in Oyo



Seyi Makinde, the Oyo State Executive Governor has rephrased his vow to run a participatory administration that would fit the interests of all religious organisations in Oyo State.

Makinde, who announced this on Tuesday when he delivered an outstanding address at the 8 editions of annual Omi tuntun Ramadan lecture held at the Oyo State Government House Arcade in Agodi Gate Ibadan, proclaimed that nobody could split the good people of Oyo State along religious strands.

The governor also rejected imputations that his government had been discriminatory to the Muslim society in Ogbomoso region.

Makinde strengthened that the residents of Oyo State had grown and developed through a family strategy that effortlessly mixed Muslims with Christians in cooperative coexistence

The governor, who promised to frequently validate a religiously impartial in the state, remembered that the day the first version of the Ramadan lecture was held, the current state under Rashidi Ladoja, the former Governor also swiveled the sod on the Circular Road, but bemoaned that nine-year after, the 110km road stayed uncompleted.

“One requires that even the 32km should have been finished, they did not even do 3km containing the bridges before we came into government. But we thank God today that Olubadan is with us, not even as high chief of Ibadan but as Olubadan. Very soon, I am sure we will ask the king when the road is prepared for commissioning,” Makinde said.

Makinde also vowed to give a conducive environment that would enable that the people and political stakeholders cohabit peacefully.

There are two-thing I must communicate so that it won’t look as if we are moving away from those problems. One of them is the matter of selections. Some attackers stated we sidelined Muslim faithful in Ogbomoso. But I want to say that as things occur in Oyo State presently, I am sure that there is nothing that can separate us as far as religion is involved.

If most people think they can accomplish separation, it is not reasonable,’’ Makinde noted
