Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Thursday condemned attack on Abdulraheem Olawuyi, the All Progressives Congress (APC) House of Representatives candidate for this Saturday’s bye-election for Irepodun/Ekiti/Isin and Oke-Ero federal constituency in Kwara.

The minister, who described the attack as unfortunate, said the party will work with relevant agencies to ensure free, fair and credible election on Saturday with adequate security before, during and after the election.

Said the minister: "You can see from the enthusiasm and the vibrancy of this crowd. Some governorship rallies cannot match what we have here today.

"No cause for alarm because security is guaranteed, we are aware of an attack on our candidate during his tour of constituency.

"This shows the opposition’s desperate attempt but I challenge them to try it again,” Muhammed said. Earlier, the Chairman of the party in the state, Bashir Bolarinwa, said APC is very much prepared for the election. Our preparations can be attested to by the crowd here today. In our own case, we have not imported anybody, what we have here today are the real electorate.

"We have done all we have to do and we have put in place all necessary apparatus to win the election and we are sure that come Saturday, we are winning " Bolarinwa said. Olawuyi said he is 80 percent sure of victory at the Saturday bye-election.
