Seyi Makinde: You Cannot Use Religious Sentiments to Divide Oyo Residents by Philipponzaghi: 8:53pm On Jun 05
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has said that no one can use religious sentiments to divide residents of the State.

Makinde made this disclosure when former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi visited him in Ibadan, the state capital.

DAILY POST recalls that Sanusi is a former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria.

The former CBN Governor is now the head of Tijaniyya Islamic movement in Nigeria.

Makinde, while receiving his guest on Saturday in Ibadan, warned critics of his government to look for other things instead of using religious sentiments to divide the state.

He then advised those who think they can create divisions among residents of the state using religion should look for better things to do.

He added that it is not possible to use religious sentiments to create division in the state.


Makinde while speaking further praised the former Emir for the role he is playing to unite citizens of the country.

He praised Sanusi, for being courageous to champion the course of peace and unity in the country.

He said, “In the South-West, we are so interconnected religious-wise that there is no family you won’t see a Muslim or a Christian in there.

“It, therefore, comes to nothing for any vested interest to want to divide us using religion.


“I usually tell my people here that those who think they can create divisions among us using religion should look for better things to do because it will not work here.

“Just as we in Yorubaland have learnt to live peacefully together, I will recommend that you preach religious harmony to all parts of Nigeria, because that is a win-win situation for us all.

“As you journey through the country, preaching peace, in your role as leader of the Tijanniya Islamic Sect, please endeavour to always impress it on our people to imbibe religious harmony.”

Well said my G.S.M. Majority of Nigerians are too religious. There are few true worshippers of God today in this part of world because we hold tight to the traditions and practices of our religion and not the practice of God.

not only Oyo but Yoruba as a whole, Rem before fasting we drink together with Muslim friends but during fasting we show solidarity with them by staying off bars until end of Ramadan. Northeners aren't like that

RELIGION AND TRIBALISM : The 2 main evil vices affecting Nigerians.
The politicians used that very well to their advantage since 1960.

This is exactly what this thread is talking about.
RELIGION and senseless TRIBALISM.
But you still have to show your tribal bigotry on this same thread.
You and your ilks simply can't help it.
TRIBALISM is in you like peak milk.

You better change your ways before it becomes too late and learn to love your neighbours as your self.

Let us leave it at this point this beautiful Sunday morning.
Go and sin no more Belial!
