The State of Osun chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday, backed the weekend visit of Governor Rauf Aregbesola to Ekiti state on the invitation of Governor Ayodele Fayose, who belonged to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The Osun State chapter which lampooned the Ekiti State chapter of the party for not recognising the political maturity displayed by Ogbeni Aregbseola in his visit to Governor Fayose, over the weekend.
Responding yesterday, the Director of Publicity of APC in Osun State, Mr Kunle Oyatomi, said: “Politicians should grow up and they should know the difference between governance and politics. Aregbesola is the head of government in Osun just as Fayose is the head of government in Ekiti. We are in a federation in which these two governors don’t necessarily have to belong to the same party.
“Their differences in political alignments do not stop interaction between the two as heads of their various governments, neither should the interaction between them be politically given.
“It will be irresponsible for any head of government to visit another head and then begin to throw political insults on him simply because one abhors the politics of another. Aregbesola has shown maturity in his interaction with Fayose. To criticise him for doing so, is not politically correct.”
