Governor Seyi Makinde has apologised for holding a rally for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Oyo State despite the current rage of Corona Virus in the country.
I have received your complaints about the rally that was held yesterday, and I feel obligated to state in clear terms that we acted based on the information we had at that time. In retrospect, it should not have happened and I take responsibility for that lapse in judgement.
