Oyo State: Accord Party Gubernatorial Candidate Demonstrates Empathy, Suspends Campaign

The gubernatorial candidate of the Accord Party in Oyo state, Adebayo Adelabu, has suspended his state-wide campaign rally for three days in solidarity with Nigerians who are facing hardship as a result of the ongoing fuel scarcity and inability to access the newly redesigned naira notes.
Adelabu, in a statement released in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, said the suspension was necessary to empathize with the people.
“I sympathize with Nigerians on their present predicament. To say times are hard is an understatement.
“No one is left out in this situation. People have money in the bank and they cannot access cash.
“I want to use this opportunity to call on government to, as a matter of urgency, address the problem.
“Our people cannot continue to suffer while politicians are dancing around at rallies. These are the people we want to govern,” the statement read in part.
