But in our own case, an atmosphere of peace and tranquility was sustained throughout the state,” the statement said.

It added: “From Ibadan to Oke-Ogun, Oyo to Ogbomosho and the rest, no single case of violence or protest was recorded. This was an eloquent testimony that APC is a peace-loving party which has to be fully supported by the electorate in the 2015 general elections.”
