The Accord Party’s candidate in the forthcoming Osun State governorship election, Akin Ogunbiyi, has condemned the attack on the residence of the Labour Party’s candidate at the poll, Lasun Yusuff, by some unknown assailants.
This was contained in a statement issued in Osogbo on Monday by Ogunbiyi Campaign Organisation.
Ogunbiyi, who stated that the attack was wicked, unfortunate and a sign that politicians had not learnt any lesson from past occurrences, expressed joy that Yussuf and his family members were not hurt in the attack.
Ogunbiyi, however, urged all and sundry to “shun evil and any action that could disturb the peace of the state,” affirming that the “blood of anyone in the state must not be shed to secure the victory of anyone at the polls.”
Meanwhile, Ogunbiyi has also thanked the people of the state for sympathising with him over the fire incident that occurred in his private residence on Sunday.
Ogunbiyi stated that whatever happened, he was determined to liberate the people of the state from bad governance and advised the electorate to vote him so that a new dawn would come upon the state.
