The senior citizens protesting at the Governor’s office claimed the civil engineering graduate from the OAU is member of All Progressives Congress thus, not deserving of the nomination/appointment.

According to a Twitter post by @patriotawaking the senior citizens carried placards reading, ” G.S.M. Ibarapa Central and North Rejects APC Nominee Segun Fakorede”, “G.S.M Don’t Allow APC Destabilise Your Government”.

Another placard spotted by BlackBox Nigeria reads, ” G.S.M Those Who Voted Against You Can Never Be Your Friend”.

However, earlier today, the Commissioner nominee tweeted his appreciation to Nigerians saying he has been overwhelmed since the announcement.

“GRATITUDE — This is to express my gratitude to Nigerians, especially the Youth, for the outpour of love and best wishes since my nomination as Commissioner was announced.

I’m grateful. I’ve been overwhelmed since the announcement. ”
