Less than a week to the August 9th, 2014 governorship election in Osun State, southwest Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan, his Vice, Architect Namadi Sambo are expected to attend the mega rally of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore billed for Saturday, 2nd August, 2014.
This is coming as the PDP’s Secretary in the state, who is also chairman of publicity committee for the visit of the President while addressing a press conference in Osogbo on Thursday, 31st July, 2014 warned members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) not to attempt to sweep the roads after the visit of President Jonathan and other dignitaries.
“They must not try it this time around and if they try to sweep the floor in an attempt to rubbish and humiliate the President, we will resist it. We know that is their usual habit and we resist it in Ikirun recently when they tried to sweep the roads after our campaign in the area. They cannot succeed this time if they try to sweep President Jonathan legs after the visit on Saturday”.
Ajao said President Jonathan, who would be accompanied by the PDP National Chairman, Adamu Muazu; Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih; among other dignitaries would meet all traditional rulers in the state at the palace of the Ooni of Ile, Oba Okunade Sijuwade.
Ajao noted that the visit of the President would further boost the morale of PDP supporters in the state and also motivate Osun people to vote for PDP candidate in the election.
He advised the people of the state not to panic over massive deployment of operatives of Department of State Security (DSS) and assured that the security men would not do anything to jeopardise the peace of the state.
