The People’s Democratic Party(PDP) House of Representatives candidate for Remo Federal constituency, Bola Oluwole, has decried the attempt by the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) in Ogun State to link him with the violence protest that shook Sagamu on Monday, describing it as an act of desperation to smear his towering image as the Saturday National Assembly election draws closer.
Oluwole who was reacting to a broadcast message circulating around that he mastermind the violence protest, said he was not in anyway connected to the protest, explaining that angry Nigerians were only acting out of frustration from the economic hardships in the country occasioned by fuel scarcity and inability to access their hard earn money.
“I want to say it in strong terms that I am not in anyway connected to the protest, Nigerians are only angered by the economic hardships in the country and their inability to access their hard earn money and the fuel scarcity.
“The APC – led government should address the situation rather than shifting the blame to innocent Nigerians.
“I am a peace loving person, a grassroots politician who has the love of his people at heart, I will never get my self involve in things that will destroy the peace and tranquility of my constituency.
“As at yesterday evening, our Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar met with all National Assembly candidates to strategise for the election so where will I have the chance to mobilise for the violent protest
“The development of my constituency is what is Paramount to me as a politician not to destroy the existing structures otherwise as purported from the camp of the opposition.
“I am condemning the attacks on the banks in it’s entirety and appeal to our youths to be patience and shun violent activities.
“I want to urge the general public and the people of my constituency to disregard the message and go about their daily activities in peace,” he said.
