Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun converge in large number to sweep major streets of Osogbo, the state capital a day after the South West rally of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osogbo.
The APC members while sweeping the street of Osogbo and the Nelson Mandela Freedom Park said they were cleansing Osogbo, particularly the venue of the PDP rally, which according to them had been polluted.
According to them, the PDP members polluted Osogbo and the sweeping was necessary to prevent outbreak of diseases such as cholera.
The party faithful were led by the Chairman of APC in Osun, Prince Gboyega Famoodun and the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Dr. Bashiru Ajibola.
Addressing participants before the commencement of road show tagged “Cleansing polluted land” Prince Famoodun reiterated the need for the cleaning.
He said Osun people would never allow PDP to come back because the party has nothing to show for about eight years of its rule in the state.
Also Dr. Basiru Ajibola said the APC embarked on the symbolic sweeping to sweep away hunger and poverty brought to the state by PDP.
Ajibola said that APC remains very solid, intact and ready to defeat the PDP again in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
He lauded Governor Rauf Aregbesola for the unprecedented development brought to the state and appealed to APC members and the entire people of Osun not to fall for the deceit of the PDP.
Ajibola stressed the need to allow continuity of the APC government so that all the ongoing developmental projects would be completed.
