The All Progressives Congress(APC) in Oyo State has expressed its heartfelt gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for donating 1800 bags of rice to the state.
In a statement signed by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Dr. AbdulAzeez Olatunde, APC said the Federal Government has “Walk its Talk” by fulfilling its purpose of governing without bias by donating 6,000 Bags of rice to four South West states.
According to Olatunde, the party hopes that Governor Seyi Makinde will not only distribute the donated bags of rice immediately, but also add from the donated cash by corporate organisations and individuals to the residents of the state without political bias, as people are already seeing the COVID-19 palliative as being terribly late in coming.
“On behalf of the leader of APC in Oyo State and Deputy National Chairman(South),H.E,Sen Abiola Ajimobi, the State Chairman of APC, Chief Akin Oke, the State Executives and infact all APC members in Oyo State, we are expressing the gratitude of the good people of Oyo State to H.E, President Muhammadu Buhari for bailing Oyo State out of the uncertainty of the COVID-19 palliative,” he added.
The Federal Government through the Nigeria Customs Service had on Monday distributed 1800 bags of rice each to Ekiti, Oyo and Osun States while Ondo State got 600 bags.
