My visit is for Yoruba unity, Ekiti gov says
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti and his Osun State counterpart, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, yesterday, set aside their political differences during a meeting in Osogbo.
While Aregbesola advised his Ekiti counterpart to face reality that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has gone into extinction, Governor Fayose said his visit to Osun State was to pursue Yoruba unity.
Aregbesola said while he was not asking the governor to abandon the opposition PDP against his wish, he would only advise him to join hands with a political party that will give hope to the people of Nigeria.
He also charged the Ekiti State governor to direct his energy towards bringing human and physical development to western region and Nigeria as a whole.
The Governor stated this when his Ekiti counterpart paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House in Osogbo.
Governor Fayose, during the visit, had said that he is in Osun not for any political reason and that he is not ready to abandon the PDP for the All Progressives Congress (APC) but for his belief in the Yoruba race and her development and unity.
