“If I want to take decisions from where I seat, it should be about the development of Oyo State.

“However, whoever has a glass house should not throw stone on others. It is evident that a life was lost. A precious life was lost and nobody’s life should be wasted for politics.

“Putting Senator Folarin in jail won’t benefit the people of Oyo. Things have happened in the past. If we go to court, alot of things will be involved. When we go to war, people can still come to a round table to discuss settlement but it can never be like before. I will let the sleeping dog lie”, he added.
