The Atooja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun has praised Governor of the state of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola over what he called his ‘courage to stick to his promise’.
In an exclusive interview with Tribune newspaper, Oba Olanipekun implored the people to be fair with Ogbeni Aregbesola and not politicize everything.
When asked if he thinks leaders cannot satisfy all by the Tribute reporter, Tunde Busari, Oba Olanipekun had this to say:
Who can satisfy all in this world? Go to Holy Quran and Bible, you will understand it better.
What happened to prophet Muhammed? What happened to Prophet Isah whom Christians call Jesus Christ? These examples are enough to tell you what I mean.
As far as I am concerned, the state government is doing its best and we are seeing what it is doing.
I am particularly giving credit to Ogbeni AbdulRauf Aregbesola for his courage to stick to his promise despite the unexpected situation he has found himself.
The song everywhere now even beyond Nigeria is that of economic recession. People should be fair to Ogbeni and face the reality.
We should be tolerant of one another regardless of our political affiliations.
People make political parties not the other way round. We should not use politics to interpret everything.
As a former civil servant, I understand the current situation but we still need to show understanding and persevere to reap the fruit in the end.
