The Governor of Oyo state, Seyi Makinde has denied any involvement in the assault on the former Oyo Governor, Ayo Fayose, during the grand finale of the Ondo Governorship campaign.
“I believe that ex-governor Fayose and his handlers need to look far away from Oyo state in search of their enemies.Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the incident Fayose’s aide was talking about.” Makinde’s Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa, said.
On Wednesday, Fayose’s cap was removed by suspected hoodlums when he made his way to the podium at Ondo PDP governorship campaign.
In reaction to the assault, Fayose had said he would make necessary report of the incident to the appropriate authorities, because he believed there was a plot to kill him like former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige.
However, Makinde, through his Chief Press Secretary has reacted to the incident. He said, “I believe that ex-governor Fayose and his handlers need to look far away from Oyo state in search of their enemies.
“Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the incident Fayose’s aide was talking about.
“We expect all right- thinking members of the PDP to join the Governor of Oyo State in the prosecution of the noble and democratic assignment he is executing on behalf of the PDP in Ondo State at this time, instead of seeking to distract him one way or the other.
“The governor will, however, not be distracted either on the task at hand or on the well- intentioned desire to join other leaders to rebuild the PDP in the South West geopolitical zone.”
