Fuel/ New Naira Notes Crises: Governor Makinde Suspends Campaign Activities

The Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde, has announced the suspension of his campaign activities following the unending fuel and new naira-notes crises.
Makinde, whose campaign train had visited some parts of Oyo state, made the announcement during the flag-off of the Omi-Adio-Ido Road on Friday.
“The suspension is in solidarity with the people over anti-people economy policies of the All progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government,” said Makinde.
The Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun, confirmed the development in a statement, saying the governor, who was in Ido to continue his campaign, directed that all campaign activities be suspended until further notice.
Makinde observed that the suffering of his people was too much, stressing that he was elected to protect their interests and well-being.
According to Olatubosun, Governor Makinde, who flagged off the Omi Adio-Ido Road in an emotion-laden voice, directed leaders of the party in the state to suspend the campaign.
The statement read in part: “As a mark of honour to citizens and residents of Oyo State, the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde has directed that all campaign activities of the party at all levels be suspended until further notice.
“Governor Seyi Makinde’s love for his people necessitated this unprecedented move at this time.
“We urge all residents and citizens of the state to remain calm as we navigate through this difficult period together.”
