The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has opened up and revealed more details about the ongoing fight between him and the incumbent Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola.
According to the Minister, Oyetola is on a vengeance mission because he (Aregesola) didn’t support his gubernatorial political ambition in 2018.
Aregbesola revealed further that when he noticed Gov.Oyetola was hell-bent on destroying his legacies in Osun State as a former Governor, he sent people to him and continued begging for two years but all his pleas fell on deaf ears.
The Minister made the revelation while speaking on Friday during a political meeting with supporters and stakeholders at Isale Abata in Ikire, Osun State.
“I begged Oyetola for two years. I sent people to help me beg him that he should not destroy my legacies and policies. He refused the pleas.
“Our hope is in God and the good people of Osun State. Nobody can overcome God. It is not a sin to contest for a position in a democratic government. The constitution of the party stipulates that after four years, we can change our candidate. But if he abides by the tenets of the party, we will support him for another term,” Aregbesola stated.
Speaking further, the Minister said there’s no going back in his total support for the former Secretary to the State Government, Moshood Adeoti to emerge as the APC flagbearer in the party primary election scheduled for Saturday, 19th February (today) to choose a candidate for the July 16 governorship polls.
“The leaders of the party have agreed that we should go back to where we missed the road in 2018. We have realized our mistake that the person we ought to put in front, we neglected him. We followed an ingrate and a wicked soul,” he told the people of Ayedaade/Isokan/Irewole Federal Constituency who were at the meeting.
