He went on to note that for now the southwest region needs to focus on getting justice for victims of criminal activities, instead of the 2023 presidential election.

Makinde, while calling for cooperation to address insecurity, said he will always take decisions that will be in the interest of the people.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the crisis between the ex-governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, and Oyo state governor took another twist on Thursday, February 25.

In a related development, the former governor of Ekiti state denied plans to attend a reconciliation meeting with Governor Makinde.
