Makinde harps on harmonious coexistence irrespective of ethnic, religious persuasions

Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, on Tuesday, advised Nigerians to live harmoniously irrespective of ethnic or religious persuasions in order for the country to thrive.

Makinde stated this while inaugurating the Sasa ultramodern market facility with 200 lock-up shops, 84 units of open shops and motor parks.
