Fuel scarcity and swap of redesigned naira notes protest have forced the All Progressives Congress to postpone its presidential rally scheduled to hold in Ibadan tomorrow till February 15.
Party chieftains and supporters have expressed shock over the postponement, noting the level of preparation.
Confirming the development, oyo state publicity secretary of the party, Olawale Sadare, said arrangement had been in top gear before the news of postponement filtered in.
According to him, the decision was taken in consideration of the prevailing challenges facing the people and the need to allow President Muhammadu Buhari work around the situation and ensure that normalcy returns particularly as it concerns the fuel and currency notes crisis.
“At Oyo APC, we were convinced that it was necessary to go ahead with the event in order not to play into the hands of some anti-democratic forces who do not want the nation’s general election to go on as scheduled because they feel the outcome of the poll, this time, would produce a new order capable of returning Nigeria to Nigerians.
“Although a new date is yet to be announced, I can assure the general public that Oyo state will host Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in no time and it is going to be a huge success. However, we appeal for calm among the citizenry as we must not lose focus on doing all that is necessary to ensure the fruition of the dream to have Tinubu as the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.” Sadare stated.
