The Member of House of Representative representing Okitipupa/Irele Federal Constituency, Hon. Gboluga Ikengboju has appealed to Ikale youths, especially in Okitipupa Local Government Area to cease fire and allow peace to reign.
Hon. Gboluga Ikengboju made this call in a media release by his Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Mr. Oyeniyi Iwakun on Friday.
According to Iwakun, Hon. Gboluga said, “The looting and destruction of property as experienced across Okitipupa LGA yesterday isn’t the best for us at a moment we are struggling for development in Ikaleland.|
“The Police Station, Local Government Secretariat, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS) Building, High Court, Free Shuttle Buses, Ministry of transportation, and many others vandalized and razed are critical infrastructures meant to serve the masses and not any politician or individual in position of authority.”
He further stressed that the attack on private property is also condemnable and doesn’t reflect what the Ikale youth stands for.
Hon. Gboluga acknowledges that peaceful protest is constitutional and as the people’s representative reiterates his support for genuine agitations.
