- As Governor Visits Ijesa South Federal Constituency
The Owa Obokun Adimula of Ijesaland, Oba Gabriel Adekunle Aromolaran has said that the huge infrastructure development of the Rauf Aregbesola administration in Osun has spoken for him and will continue to.
He said if the All Progressives Congress (APC) plays by the rules and listens to elders advise on the way forward, victory in the coming poll is guaranteed.
Aromolaran emphasised that it is only God who has the final say in who becomes the Governor of the state at the expiration of Aregbesola’s tenure, but with prayers anything can happen.
The Monarch stated this when Governor Aregbesola paid a courtesy visit to the palace of the Adimula before the commencement of the goodwill visit to members of APC by the governor to Ijesa South Federal Constituency.
The royal father urged politicians ahead the coming election to stop maligning themselves for a better Osun and Nigeria to be achievable, saying that the winner of the forthcoming election is only known to God and can be unlocked through prayers.
He commended Aregbesola for the infrastructure development that has happened in the state but asked that government should ensure that more is done in Ijesaland.
“Aregbesola has done so well for Osun and deserves commendation from all angles, especially on roads and school infrastructure.
“His works have always spoken for him and I am sure it will continue to. As for the coming gubernatorial elections on September 22, I want us all to understand that it is God that chooses a leader but with prayers our heart desires will be granted.
“Myself and the whole of Ijesaland including the chiefs will continue to hail Aregbesola for his achievements, but I want to use this medium to appeal to the administration to do more for Ijeshaland.
“As we are pledging our unflinching support to the governor, I want to urge politicians in Osun and Nigeria at large to eschew politics of bitterness for the benefit of the state and the country at large.
The Governor at the goodwill visits stated that the team came to sensitise members of the party on the forthcoming election in September this year.
He urged the people of the state to learn from Lagos who had enjoyed unprecedented development due to the fact that the state is enjoying unbroken regime of the progressive party.
Aregbesola stated that ever since the creation of Nigeria when Osun was a division of the Western Region and now a state, no government has ever achieved his administration’s feat in terms of infrastructural development.
He explained further that the essence of allowing continuity in government in Osun is not for himself alone but for the benefit of the entire state as the spate of development being experienced will definitely continue under the APC government.
While thanking God for liberating the state through the APC government, Aregbesola stressed that residents of the state should be careful not to allow the opposition take over the state ever again.
He said, “I want us to be very careful not to lose what we have; what we have is unparalleled development which have never been experienced in the state since its creation.
“The state is going through a developmental phase and we must be careful not to halt the steady wind of positive change that is blowing across the state.
“Lagos state is the most developed state in the country today simply because no other party has, apart from the APC, ruled the state. It is the continuity in the governance of Lagos that has enabled it to develop in that manner.
“I thank God for liberating Osun through our party and I urge us seriously to guide the state from being taken over by the opposition again”. The governor stated.
