Aregbesola takes a stand against Oyetola and declares his support for Adeoti
NewsReport gathered that Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior, has proclaimed his support for Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, the former Secretary to the Osun State Government, as the state’s future governor.
The current administration, according to the former governor of Osun State, has only veered from the core values of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Aregbesola made the announcement on Monday in Ijebu Ijesa, while speaking to party supporters and stakeholders ahead of the party’s primaries.
The APC primary will take place on February 19, 2022.
He encouraged party members and stakeholders not to be distracted and to work together to ensure Adeoti’s victory in the APC governorship primary on Saturday.
Aregbesola said the party is back in the hands of true progressives who will work assiduously to win in the July 16 governorship election in the state.
He stated that those at the helm of affairs have also jettisoned true democracy and the principles which the party and its heroes stand for.
The former governor also noted that the Rasaq Salinsile-led party executives are the authentic APC in Osun.
“Anyone who was with us when we started the journey to reclaim Osun for the progressives in 2004 would know we fought very hard for this victory we have today. We went through several challenges then but through thick and thin, we were able to succeed. This time around, we will succeed.
“We are ready to allow a free-flow of the democratic process to interplay here. We are not those who play God. We are resolute about reclaiming our party from those who think they can continue to abuse our legacies or even want us to be second fiddles in the party we worked and labored for. This is our pride and we will sustain it.
