Makinde Backs Afenifere’s Position On Presidency


Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, on Sunday, affirmed his support for the position of the pan-Yoruba organisation, Afenifere, on the endorsement of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.

Makinde, represented by his Deputy Governor, Bayo Lawal, who spoke in Yoruba made this known in Akure, Ondo State at the welcoming occasion of Tinubu by the leader of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti and other Yoruba elders.

Tinubu visited the organisation to unveil his action plans for the country as documented in his 80-page campaign manifesto.

Lawal said, “Since he (Makinde) became governor, he doesn’t joke with Yoruba matters. There is no time that father would call him that he would fail to respond.


“Whenever there is an event, either organised by Afenifere or any other Yoruba group, Gov Makinde will always be supportive. Though we are not of the same political affiliation, but we are bound by ethnicity. Yoruba land, whatever it is you are doing, he (Makinde) is in support.”

The PUNCH had earlier reported that Tinubu will be visiting Pa Fasoranti and the leadership of Afenifere to intimate them of his ambition and action plans to tackle insecurity, and ‘economic imbalance’ mitigating the progress of the country.

However, Seyi Makinde and four other PDP governors including Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Samuel Ortom (Benue); Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia); Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu) popularly known as the Peoples Democratic Party G5 believed to be aggrieved over party leadership tussles have been at loggerheads with the chairman of the PDP, Dr Iyorcha Ayu over the zoning of the party’s chairmanship seat.

All the aggrieved governors have been boycotting activities of the party at the national level, especially those that involved the party’s standard bearer, Atiku Abubakar.

During this meeting, Pa Fasoranti had placed his hands on Tinubu’s head and prayed for him, dismissing Ayo Adebanjo’s endorsement of the Labour Party’s candidate, Peter Obi.

    Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways to the lungs. It makes breathing difficult and can make some physical activities challenging or even impossible.

    It’s the most common chronic condition among children.

    To understand asthma, it’s necessary to understand a little about what happens when you breathe.

    Normally, with every breath you take, air goes through your nose or mouth and down into your throat and into your airways, eventually making it to your lungs.

    There are lots of small air passages in your lungs that help deliver oxygen from the air into your bloodstream.

    Asthma symptoms occur when the lining of your airways swell and the muscles around them tighten. Mucus then fills the airways, further reducing the amount of air that can pass through.

    These conditions can then bring on an asthma “attack,” the coughing and tightness in your chest that’s typical of asthma.

    Symptoms of asthma.

    The most common symptom of asthma is wheezing, a squealing or whistling sound made when you breathe.

    Other asthma symptoms may include:

    coughing, especially at night, when laughing, or during exercise

    tightness in the chest

    shortness of breath

    difficulty talking

    anxiousness or panic


    The type of asthma that you have can determine which symptoms you experience.

    Not everyone with asthma will experience these particular symptoms. If you think the symptoms you’re experiencing could be a sign of a condition such as asthma, make an appointment to see your doctor.

    The first indication that you have asthma may not be an actual asthma attack.
