JUST IN: Ibadan Explosion: Atiku Has Neither Called Nor Sent Text Message To Me Despite Being In Same PDP – Oyo Governor, Makinde

Governor Makinde made the revelation when the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the election, Peter Obi, visited him to commiserate with him over the explosion.

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State on Monday accused the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, of neither calling nor sending him a text message to commiserate with him and the people of his state over the explosion that rocked the state capital a few weeks ago.

Governor Makinde made the revelation when the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the election, Peter Obi, visited him to commiserate with him over the explosion.

He said that President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had called him over the incident but Atiku, a member of the same political party as him, had not reached out to him.

The governor, who expressed gratitude to Obi said that Nigerian leaders should understand that there is time for politics, time for governance and time for humanity.

He said, “I thank you because politics didn’t slip into this and you came here to commiserate with us over the explosion.

“Actually, though investigation for details is still going on, it was simply illegal miners storing explosives in an environment where they shouldn’t be, where people live, not mining sites. All the lapses that allow such to happen have been looked into.

“I’m particularly grateful because the President called me. You (Obi) have reached out to me but my own party candidate, not even a call or a text message.

“I’m saying this openly so that our leaders will know that there is time for politics and time for governance and time for humanity.”

Ahead of the last general election, Makinde and some other PDP governors known as G5 called on Atiku or the then-National Chairman of the party, Iyiorcha Ayu to step down.

According to the governors, it was not fair on the people of Southern Nigeria for both men – who were northerners – to hold the positions at the time.

Some political analysts have blamed Atiku’s loss at the poll on the political difference with the governors, who reportedly backed the eventual winner of the election, Tinubu of the APC.
