A sociopolitical group, Advocacy for Progressive Governance – Oyo State 2023(APG-OY ’23) has condemned incessant attacks on the All Progressives’ Congress billboards in the state.
The group also warned the ruling People’s Democratic Party(PDP) to stop playing politics of bitterness.
This is coming on the heel of series of attacks on the party’s facilities and destructions of APC aspirants’ billboards across the state, especially, the attack on APC secretariat in Lagelu Local Government and destructions of the party’s front line Gubernatorial Hopeful, Barrister Akeem Agbaje’s billboards, by alleged thugs of PDP.
