Members of Osun Professionals in FCT, a group in support of Gov. Rauf Aregbesola on Tuesday staged a peaceful march in support of the governor.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the group, led by its Pressident, Mr Yahaya Mojeed marched around Three Arms Zone and Central Area of Abuja.
Speaking with newsmen, Mojeed urged all indigenes of the state to support Aregbesola in his quest to develop the state.
He also urged the governor to avoid political distractions and to continue in his determination to move the state forward.
According to him, Aregbesola needs to be encouraged as he makes efforts to tackle developmental challenges facing the state.
“Most states in Nigeria are facing similar challenges due to dwindling revenue and reduction in allocation to states.
“We are using this opportunity to urge our governor to remain steadfast and be creative in revenue generation to deliver on his mandate.
“Poverty and underdevelopment do not have political colouration; we are, therefore, asking politicians to sheath their swords and support their leaders to perform,’’ Mojeed said.
