The party chieftain expressed regrets that the country is experiencing unusual cost of pump price, and shortage of cash a few weeks away from “an all-important general elections”.
He argued that the people of Ondo State have the right to be angry, and express same over the unfortunate development, but urged them to do so as patriots that believe in a better tomorrow.
He said, “As a party, we identify with our people at this unpleasant period. We agree they are exercising their rights, but urge them to do so with measure of restraints.
“Our strong believe is that this time shall fade soon”, he added
