Governor Makinde, said there will be no space for religious bias or sentiments in his administration.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted the governor as saying that the late Engineer Lere Adigun, who became his father and confidant in the course of their relationship, left a huge gap in his life, which he said will be difficult to fill.

The event, held within the premises of the deceased’s Oluyole Estate, Ibadan residence, had dignitaries from the state and government functionaries in attendance.

Governor Makinde also stated that the late CEO of Sahara Engineers taught him to be fair and not to be sentimental to any religion faithful in the state.

The governor, therefore, invited all residents and indigenes of Oyo State to contribute their quota to developing the state without bias and favour.

He also declared that the current administration in the state is open to ideas and constructive criticisms, adding that it was wrong for anyone to insinuate that he would be biased against any religion.

He said : “I am already seeing one of the lessons I Iearnt from Baba. For instance, MURIC is alleging that this government does not want Muslims to benefit from the dividends of democracy. Baba would have responded to the allegation if he were alive.

“But I am going to answer them now. One thing Baba taught me is not to be sentimental about religion and that people should be considered based on merit. And that is how this administration is being run. It will be like this until the tenure is over.”

He added that any position or benefit that each religious organization deserves will be given to them at the right time, saying: “This administration started one day, it will also end one day. Whether one is a Muslim or a Christian, it is whatever one deserves that one would get. That was what I learnt from Baba.”
