Bayo Lawal, the deputy governor of Oyo State, has revealed that his principal, Governor Seyi Makinde, is in support of the stance of Yoruba elders in the build up to the 2023 presidential election.
The Oyo deputy governor disclosed this today, Sunday, during the visit of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to elder statesman, Pa Reuben Fasoranti and elders of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere in Akure, Ondo State.
Bayo Lawal, who represented his principal, the state Governor of oyo state, Makinde, while addressing the gathering said in Yoruba dialect, “Since he (Makinde) became governor, he doesn’t joke with Yoruba matters. There is no time that father would call him that he would fail to respond. There is no time that when our father is having an event either under the umbrella of Afenifere or other group in Yoruba land that Engineer Makinde would not support.
“We are not of the same party but we are of the same tribe. The message he gave me is this. ‘Yoruba land, whatever it is you are doing, he is support.’”
In the course of the meeting, Pa Fasoranti had placed his hands on the APC candidate Bola Tinubu’s head and prayed for him ahead of the 2023 general election.
