Makinde informs Tinubu that the G5 would select Nigeria’s unity.
The G5 will strive for Nigeria’s unity as the nation prepares for elections, according to Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo State.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu and some party chieftains paid Makinde a visit in Ibadan on Thursday as part of a rally in the state. Makinde is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The leader of Oyo, who is a member of the G5 of the PDP (displeased governors of the main opposition party), claimed that the Integrity Group wants to keep the nation united.
He declared, “The Integrity Group has stated that if forced to choose between the unity of this nation and our objectives, we will pick the unity of this nation.”
Makinde reaffirmed the G5’s need for fairness and equity in the nation’s power-sharing arrangements.
The PDP leader continued, “We have to evolve a system so that there is inclusivity, fairness, justice, and equity in how we manage this country.
He asserts that despite the existence of numerous political parties and candidates, everyone must make sure they act with the country’s unity in mind.
This becomes more significant to him because “political parties will disappear if the country does not survive.”
He praised the APC governors in the north for supporting Tinubu while upholding justice and fairness.
The governor of Oyo State predicted that voters there will support “equity, fairness, justice, and the unity of Nigeria.”
According to Tinubu, the political rift won’t prevent him from becoming the leader of a unified nation.
The former governor of Lagos State stated during the ceremony, “I am come to pay a basic respect.”
Former governor of Osun State Bisi Akande, Minister of Youth and Sports Development Sunday Dare, and Governor of Ogun State Dapo Abiodun were in attendance with the APC flagbearer.
Others include Kayode Fayemi and Gboyega Oyetola, respectively, former governors of Ekiti and Osun.
