Ibadan explosion: Obi visits gov Makinde
Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has visited the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde following the unfortunate explosion that occurred in the State last week.
The former governor of Anambra State during the visit commiserated with Makinde over the explosion that claimed some lives and injured many.
He also appreciated governor Makinde and his team for their prompt intervention in setting up an emergency center and donations channel, to help the victims of the tragic incident.
Obi however, promised to make donations to the payment details provided by the state government in order to assist victims of the explosion.
He said, “Today, in the company of some comrades that included Aisha Yesufu, Dele Farotimi, and Dr. Moses Paul, I paid a solidarity visit to my dear friend and brother, the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde @seyi_amakinde, at Ibadan, Oyo State, to commiserate with him and the good people of Oyo State, over the recent explosion that sadly claimed some lives and injured others.
“Aside the economic loss incurred by the people, many of whom were rendered homeless by the incident, I am concerned about the trauma and psychological devastation experienced by these brothers and sisters of ours. Our thoughts and prayers are with the affected families at these difficult times.
“I sincerely thank Gov Makinde and his team for their prompt intervention in setting up an emergency center and donations channel, to help the victims of the tragic incident. That is what governance should be about – caring for the people.
“I will definitely be making my token donations to the payment details provided by the government. We all, as one big family, share in their pains and discomforts at this time. Again, I pray God to grant eternal rest to the dead and grant quick recovery to the injured.”
