Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has stated he never interfered with the appointments of judges, adding he only ensured due process was followed to the letter in the exercise.
The Governor, who stated this on Wednesday, May 12, 2022, while hosting Oyo Muslim Ummah at his residence in Ibadan, added his government has continued to be fair and just to all religions.
He said he has always ensured merit and excellence were considered for appointments and recruitments in the state.
He added although some elements had been trying to cause confusion along religious lines, they have not been successful because the government has been transparent and fair.
He said rather than dissipate energy on religious differences residents of the state should unite to fight the challenges of poverty and hunger, which, according to him, know no religion.
