The former Minister of Education, Dr Mrs Oby Ezekwesili, has taken out her time to drag the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for recently speaking against the economy of the country, under this present administration.

While speaking, Oby Ezekwesili made it known that she listened to the lamentations of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the way his party, the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC has run the economy of country.

Speaking further, the former education minister made it known that she wonders the reason why Bola Tinubu waited this long to say the same thing they have been saying on the economy all these while.

Since the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, came into power, over seven years ago, the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu never spoke against anything about this government, but as it stands now, the kind of statements he is making these days makes one wonder why he is saying all these things now.

Information reaching naijablitznews.com indicates that the campaign train of Seyi Makinde, guber candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state, has been reportedly attacked by gun-wielding hoodlums.

Moses Alao, special assistant to the governor on print media, in a statement on Wednesday, said the attacks occurred on Tuesday at Igangan, Ibarapa north LGA of the state.

Alao said the governor had addressed a mammoth crowd at the Igangan town hall and was heading to Tapa when the incident occurred, adding that the governor’s convoy ran into a roadblock, where the hoodlums demanded money.

He said the hoodlums started pelting the convoy with sticks and stones and later shot at the vehicles.

“The attacks were premeditated and orchestrated by some opposition elements, who hired street urchins to waylay the convoy of the governor,” Alao said.

“This is with a view to giving the governor a bad image among the teeming population of Oyo state people.

“The unprovoked attacks were reprehensible, especially as the people of the state already know Makinde as a man of peace.

“As it has become the custom of the governor to acknowledge the cheers and love of the people and in turn distribute souvenirs wherever he went to campaign, Governor Makinde stood in an open-roof SUV while other members of the entourage were in his tow.

“Toward the exit of the town was a roadblock, which we now know was mounted by the thugs to halt the flow of traffic so that they would be able to perpetrate their dastardly act.

“Some group of boys started demanding money instead of the souvenirs being shared by the governor. Before anyone could say Jack Robinson, they started hauling stones, while some went in search of big sticks with which they were smashing vehicles indiscriminately.

“The urchins went directly after the SUV of Chief Tegbe, which showed a clearly premeditated motive, while others kept attacking other vehicles coming behind the governor.”

Alao said the JAC bus conveying the media aides of the governor, journalists, and other vehicles were damaged by the hoodlums.

“At some points, the hoodlums graduated from hurling stones by bringing out guns and shooting at vehicles in the convoy,” he said.

“We are sure that the same hoodlums went into the streets of Igangan to commit the wanton arson and destruction.

“While we sympathise with the families of individuals affected by the crisis, it is important to point out that Governor Makinde is a man of peace. And has made it clear that his ambition is not worth the blood of any Oyo state indigene.
