Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is expected to be in Ilorin on Thursday, February 21, to continue his door-to-door campaign for the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari and other All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates.
Olorin Adebayo, the coordinator of field operations directorate of Buhari/Osinbajo project called on the people in the state to come out massively and give the vice president a warm welcome, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
He said: “We are calling on Kwara residents to come out en mass to receive Nigeria’s number two citizen as they did last week when the president visited the state.
