Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has denied all allegations that he hired the hoodlums who attacked the former governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose.
He further asked the Fayose to desist from distracting him.
Yesterday, while Fayose was walking towards the podium at the PDP campaign ground in Omdo state, some thugs approached him and removed his cap.
The former governor had alleged Makinde sponsored the attack with “a former deputy national chairman of the PDP”.
In a statement however, Taiwo Adisa, Makinde’s media aide, said Fayose appears to be “perpetually desirous of hugging the limelight even when the occasion doesn’t desire such grandstanding”.
He added that Fayose need to look for his enemies somewhere else from Oyo state.
“Governor Makinde has no link whatsoever with the incident Fayose’s aide was talking about.
“We expect all right-thinking members of the PDP to join the Governor of Oyo State in the prosecution of the noble and democratic assignment he is executing on behalf of the PDP in Ondo state at this time, instead of seeking to distract him one way or the other.
“The governor will, however, not be distracted either on the task at hand or on the well-intentioned desire to join other leaders to rebuild the PDP in the south-west geopolitical zone.”
