His words: “Iwo is strategic in the political scheme of Osun, and our party APC didn't do very well here in the last election, so this is a strategic intervention to boost the chances of the party, and enlighten electorates on voters education to reduce drastically voided votes in the coming election as against the 49,000 cancelled votes in the September 22 gubernatorial election.
“We are taking this campaign to other major towns in Osun and will be held in Oyo, Ondo and Ekiti states too.”
The APC chairman in Iwo, Alhaji Gafar Adeniyi Atanda who led other chieftains of the party to join the rally equally praised the initiator of the enlightenment rally for his contribution towards the stability of the party.
