Ibadan Explosion: Makinde hails Obi over visit, blasts Atiku

Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has taken a swipe at former Vice President Atiku Abubakar for failing to express empathy to the Oyo State government over the explosion that rocked Bodija area of Ibadan.

Makinde criticised Atiku while appreciating the former Governor of Anambra State and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, who was on a condolence visit to his office.

Makinde revealed that only the former vice president had not reached out to him out of the three major candidates who contested the 2023 general election.

“I want to thank you especially for the visit. Out of the 3 major candidates who contested the 2023 election, only Atiku Abubakar, my own leader and our candidate hasn’t called to commiserate with the state. I am saying this openly so that our leaders will know that we have time for politics and others. I want to thank you once again for coming,” Makinde told Obi, who had Aisha Yesufu in his entourage.

The January 16 blast on Dejo Oyelese Street, Bodija, resulted in loss of lives and property.
