2023: I Was Not Part Of Obidients Rally For Peter Obi In Oyo State – Makinde

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has distanced himself from the rally organised in Ibadan, the state capital on Saturday by supporters of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party.

Makinde who was rumoured to have attended the rally refuted the claims in statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary , Taiwo Adisa.

The statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to an online publication, which indicated that Governor Makinde was spotted among the Obidients during a rally in Ibadan, on Saturday, September 3, 2022.

“To say the least, the publication is a falsehood, packaged to deceive the unsuspecting.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Makinde was nowhere near Ibadan when the said rally held. A Yoruba adage says one person cannot stand in twos. How is it possible for the governor who was observing the last days of his leave outside the country to be spotted among the so-called Obidients in Ibadan?

“While we will not begrudge the Obidients’ desire to propagate their candidate, we will not oblige anyone the luxury of dragging the reputation of the Governor of Oyo State on accounts of false claims.”
