The All Progressives Congress (APC), Oyo State chapter, has confirmed the postponement of the presidential rally earlier scheduled to hold at the Mapo Hall, Ibadan on Tuesday.
The party said the posptponment was due to the “precarious mood of the country regarding scarcity of naira notes and fuel protests rocking the state.”
According to the Oyo APC Publicity Secretary, Olawale Sadare, in a statement made available to journalists Monday, the decision was taken by the Governor Simon Lalong-led Presidential Campaign Council in view of the mood of the nation.
Residents of Ibadan over the weekend staged a protest which degenerated into riot as banks and the State Secretariat were attacked.
The protest also led to the death of one person.
