“It’s quite unfortunate and regrettable that some people still play undemocratic politics of thuggery in 2022. Any political party that still uses thugs and violence should be resisted by all well meaning Osun voters and all political stakeholders must come together to combat this holistically before it degenerates to something worse.”
