Bola Oluwole, House of Representative candidate under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party, Remo constituency has explained that he didn’t have a hand in the crisis that rocked Sagamu few days ago over cash scarcity.
Recall that an aide of Governor Dapo Abiodun, Emmanuel Ojo had accused Oluwole of sponsoring the violent protest in Sagamu.
Responding to the allegations, Oluwole said that the APC was trying to tarnish his reputation ahead of Saturday’s polls in the country.
The PDP member stated that he was not in any way connected to the protest, saying Nigerians are only angry over the nation’s economic hardship and their inability to access their money and the lingering fuel scarcity.
Oluwole stated further: “As of yesterday evening, our presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, met with all National Assembly candidates to strategise for the election; so where will I have the chance to mobilise for the violent protest?”
He condemned the attacks on commercial banks in Sagamu and appealed to youths to shun violent activities and be patient.
While addressing the accusation levelled against him by members of APC, he said: “I want to urge the general public and the people of my constituency to disregard the message and go about their daily activities in peace.”
