Sasha Crisis; Handiwork of Nigeria’s Enemy – Gov Makinde

Oyo state governor; Engr Seyi Makinde has again stated that the recent chaos in Sasha which led to the deterioration of peace and order in the state was a creation of enemies of Nigeria.

The Governor said this while on a tour to the market on Wednesday.

According to him: “When the incident at Shasa happened, I was convinced that it is the handiwork of people that don’t mean good for this country. We want as many people that can make a living in Oyo State to come here. It does not matter where you are from”.

Seyi Makinde noted that the market is of economic importance to the state and that his administration through the Local government will upgrade the facilities and structures in the state.

“What I want to say is that, this is a market, which has contributed to the economy of Oyo State. Now, government will come here and do your infrastructure. We will organise the market very well and ensure that there is harmony between everybody that is earning their living here.

“I will meet with the leadership of the market and we will ensure that this place is organized. Truth is, we don’t want any loss of lives, and that is why we will clear the express road, clean all of these places and they will make ways for you. But please, we don’t want people to trade on the express, we want them to come in.

“We will get the local government to come here and upgrade your facilities. They will fix the road coming in here, they will put solar light so that people can stay here. But please and please, do ensure that there is ethnic harmony in this place.

“We are all together and you should go about your business with no hindrance. Obey your leaders, obey the laws that will be put in place in this market and you won’t have any problem with anybody, not even with the government.”
