LEADERS of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ijesaland has expressed their hope to see the settlement of the differences between the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. 

The APC leader in a press conference addressed in Ilesa on Tuesday, said it is heartbreaking to see Tinubu and Aregbesola fighting each other.

According to the APC leaders, some fifth columnists who are not happy with the rising political profile of Aregbesola sowed the seed of discord between the two APC leaders. 

This is just as the Ijesaland APC leaders reaffirmed their allegiance and support for Aregbesola, saying that were ready to follow him to war and fight on his behalf against any foe.

Led by Alhaji Azeez Adesiji, a former Chairman of Ilesa West Local Government, the Ijesaland APC leaders, condemned the attitude of some youths who carried coffin to announce the purported political death of Aregbesola in Alimosho local government.

They described the conduct of the youths as uncalled for and political hatred carried too far. 

The Ijesaland APC leader said: “Aregbesola’s political rise and exploits, no doubt has not gone down well with some people in Lagos who are sworn to pull him down. From time immemorial, they have been sowing seeds of discord between him and Asiwaju but their efforts hitherto have been fruitless. 

“Unfortunately, however, they have now succeeded in poisoning the mind of Asiwaju against him, leading to the crisis of confidence between them. It is our hope and prayer that they will iron out their differences and become a formidable team again.

“These enemies within have now used the crisis in Osun to maximum advantage. Let us ask them: where were they when Rauf was making enemies on behalf of Asiwaju and taking bullets for him? They have been lurking in the shadows, of no use to themselves, Asiwaju and the party. They falsely think that Rauf’s loss will be their gain. They are grossly mistaken. 

“Their campaign of calumny against Rauf will fail and they will eat the bread of shame and drink the wine of disgrace. Aregbesola is God’s anointed. 

“We are also sounding a note of warning to them. Nothing must happen to Rauf Aregbesola. We shall hold them responsible. We are ready to follow him to war and fight on his behalf against any foe. We shall use everything at our disposal to defend one (or any) of our own in the face of any diabolical attack.”
