condemn governor ban on rallies and possessions...

The gubenatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress in the forthcoming general election, Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq in company of Kwara Central Senatorial candidate of the party Dr. Ibraheem Yahaya Oloriegbe were today on sympathy visit to some victims of last weekend political violent in Ilorin.

The two candidates who visited the victims today offered words of encouragement to the recuperating victims and encouraged them not to be discouraged in saving Kwara from hands of looters.

“We came to commiserate with the victims of the bad incidence that took place two days ago.”

“They started by attacking our rallies, we have held many rallies and there have not been violence in any of the rallies, but the moment we stepped out to campaign, they attacked us. We launch our billboards but they bring them down.”

“It’s not about APC candidate any more, it’s a movement to bring Kwara back after 16 years of stealing, they stole our resources, they have turned Kwara state into an ATM, they steal money, all you need to do is, look at evidence presented at the code of conduct tribunal to see where our monies have gone.”

Meanwhile, Oloriegbe in his reaction corroborated Abdulrahaman's view by maintaining that the attacks were deliberate attempt to discourage the party and her teeming supporters from campaigning and exercise their franchise in the upcoming general elections but thereafter give the assurance that they will not stop but continue vigorously in preaching the O TO GE gospel across the nook and crannies of the State.

Reacting to the governor’s ban on rallies and procession, he said, “They don’t want us to get there but we’ll get there by the grace of God. In a democratic setting, how can they ban a rally. We are victims of violence here we are victims of their violence and it must stopped.”

“I made a police call yesterday and he told me that they are up to the task, we will get to the bottom of the violence, we must stop it.”

However, he said the president will be visiting Kwara nextweek, “The president is coming next week and he is going to make the talk and work it. They are not going to stop the president from campaigning and they will not stop us from campaigning.”
