The Idẹra Crusader, Afolabi Olumide Ajiboye (AFOO) on Thursday, May 21 extended gestures to members of Idẹra Movement and the good people of Ifako-Ijaiye, to cushion the effects of the lockdown.
In a chat with People & Politics, Afoo, as he is fondly called by political admirers, who phoned in from Texas, USA, said his absence from the country doesn’t symbolize he’s far away from his people.
The House of Assembly contender at the last poll, under the auspices of All Progressives Congress told our correspondent that for him, out of sight isn’t out of mind.
“I so wish I’m with my people, but the global lockdown met me at Texas, and I just have to heed to the voice of reason and position of the government by staying where I am.
“Meanwhile, distance does not mean I can’t reach them. I want them to know that out of sight isn’t out of mind. Moreso, since there are members of the movement that can handle the process once resources are provided, then why not do what we have to?
“We aren’t doing this for propaganda but as a genuine concern for our people back home. There are other things in store we plan to unveil for them, I pray God spares our lives and get rid of this scourge, so that we will be free again for effective operation.
“However, I implore our people to take all necessary precautions in complimenting the efforts of the government, both at the local, state and federal level. Health is wealth”, he said.
He thus used the medium to felicitate with all Muslim faithful, he prayed that God will grant all their good petitions in the Ramadan, and he wished the whole of Ifako-Ijaiye Happy Sallah.
