Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has now publicly accepted Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo as the South West zonal leader.
He made the declaration on Monday during the South-West Zonal Congress at the Women and Children Development Initiative Foundation (WOCDIF), Osogbo, Osun State.
Speaking in English and Yoruba, Fayose said “Nothing will last forever. And if I have offended anybody, I apologize.
“Don’t allow them to give us a name that’s not ours in Yorubaland. The time of our Governor, Seyi Makinde, will not fail.
Fayose further used a proverb to describe what went wrong. He said “Ija l’ode t’orin d’owe”. Meaning: “It was the fight that occurred that made a song become a proverb”.
“Seyi Makinde and I are one since. But under any leadership regardless of the level, you are our father. God will help you succeed.” he said.
