Adelabu advised politicians to be fair to all religions.
He said that it will be unfortunate for any government to discriminate against any religion.
Adelabu said, “All religions are equal in the presence of God, so why would human beings be sentimental about it? We promise that our government when elected into office in 2023 will be fair to all.
“We are here to seek your support, prayers and blessings for our emergence in 2023. We would not let you down”.
Adeagbo expressed dismay over the deplorable condition of infrastructures in Oke-Ogun zone.
