Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde says Nigerians must remain united and not allow ethnicity, language, and religions to divide them.
Governor Makinde made the call during the commissioning of the new Sasa ultra-modern farmers market, Ibadan.
The state helmsman who recounted the crises that led to the destruction of the market, noted that if the situation was not well managed by the state government and relevant stakeholders, the crises would have escalated across the country.
He appealed to market leaders, religious leaders and people of different ethnic background in the market to work together and make the market symbol of unity.
The new Sasa ultra-modern farmers market consists of 200 block of shops, 84 unit of open shops, male and female toilets, trailer parks, among others.
It would be recalled that the popular Sasa market was gutted by fire on February 12, 2021, after an ethnic crisis broke out between Hausas and Yorubas.
