Governor Ibikunle Amosun has accused politicians and elite of creating disunity in the country for selfish reasons.
The governor asked the mass media to ignore them.
Amosun, speaking to the State House correspondents in Abeokuta, said such politicians and elites resort to dichotomy, religion or ethnicity when it suits them.
The media, according to the governor, should project issues that unite Nigerians, ahead of the 2019 polls, and to be wary of people using inflammatory words that will hamper development.
The governor said leaders need criticisms, but urges that the criticisms must be made in good faith.
