IPAC noted that, as a group, they are to educate, sensitize all the existing political parties in the state on peaceful coexistence and urging them to make their campaigns objective and issue based.
MOUTHPIECE NGR understands that the group’s visitation was centered on getting to know the new deputy governor of Oyo state.
The group announced in a message of congratulations that the council decided it was appropriate to pay the courtesy visit to lawyer Bayo Lawal following his appointment as the deputy governor and recent approval as the acting governor due to his Excellency, Engineer Seyi Makinde’s three-week leave of absence.
