Governor of , Seyi Makinde has come under attack for hosting a South-West unification in the state amidst fears of outbreak in Nigeria.

Governor Makinde, who was speaking on Wednesday during the rally held at the historic Mapo Hall in Ibadan, said he organized the gathering because there is no Coronavirus in the People’s Democratic Party () unlike the All Progressives Congress (APC) that its leader admitted that the disease have infiltrated their party.

Makinde said: Today is the beginning of unity in the South-West region. If South-West is united, the whole country will be united. We are using this opportunity to welcome our brothers and sisters from APC, ADP, ZLP, SDP and ADC.

“I want you to take two things home. And the first is; they are of the opinion that we should not have staged this rally because of the Coronavirus pandemic but it was one of their leaders who said Coronavirus has already infiltrated their party. We all know that there is no Coronavirus in our own party.

“The second is, last week, some people went to Lagos to protest against Amotekun. They did the same in Ekiti yesterday. And you will begin to wonder if these elements are really of Yoruba extraction. But the truth of the matter, which has also been established, is that our people want Amotekun and it has come to stay.

“So, I want to urge us to show deep love to our leaders and their loyalists who have joined us again. Let us tell them they are welcome to their home.”

This did not sit well with because rally had in attendance a Special Assistant to the governor on Culture and Tourism, Taye Currency, who is alleged to have recently returned from the United Kingdom, one of the countries with high suspected cases of coronavirus.

Also, the health minister, Osagie Ehanire confirmed five more cases of Coronavirus in Nigeria including that of a man who had been in Ibadan for two weeks before departing to Ekiti.

Nigerians have taken to social media to lament the possible effect of the rally and the underlying carelessness on the he Oyo state government.
