Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde is currently in Bayelsa to seek support from the Yoruba community for Governor Duoye Diri ahead of the governorship election in the state.

Governor Duoye Diri is seeking re-election for a second term on Saturday, November 11.

The governor has appealed to the leadership of the Yoruba community in the Niger Delta state to vote for Governor Diri.

The Yoruba leaders were led to the meeting by the former House of Representatives member, representing Iseyin, Itesiwaju, Kajola and Iwajowa federal constituency of Oyo State, Abiodun Olasupo.

Makinde assured the Yorubas in Bayelsa that the present peaceful atmosphere that has helped boost their businesses and socio-cultural ties would subsist.

He said, “I assure everyone among the Yorubas in Bayelsa that the peace you are experiencing today will continue so as to help your businesses, your socio-cultural affiliations and religious harmony.

“All you need to do is go back and meet with my people at home with this message of hope, they should be assured that Governor Diri is theirs, all they need to do is go and vote for the incumbent’s re-election.”
