Makinde, whose campaign trail had visited some parts of the state, announced the suspension of his campaign activities at the flag off of the Omi-Adio-Ido Road on Friday.
The governor said that the suspension was in solidarity with the people over the harrowing experiences in recent times over unending fuel and new naira-note crisis in the state.
He directed that all campaign activities be suspended, noting that the people’s suffering was too much.
“Makinde’s love for his people necessitated this unprecedented move, at this time.
“We urge all residents and citizens of the state to remain calm as we navigate through this difficult period together,” the governor was quoted as saying.
