“Trust is like a structure. Every structure requires a solid foundation, and the cornerstone for trust is truth,” Makinde explained.

While assuring the delegates that he would remain truthful, the governor asked all PDP members in the state to continue fighting for the party’s advancement.

Earlier, Gbolarumi, who claimed that his delegates were chased away from the primaries venue, urged the party’s leadership to do the right thing for the party’s progress in the state.
