Osun 2018: What Successor of Aregbesola Will do – Adeoti



By Abdulrofiu Agboola

The Secretary to the Osun State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, has vowed that the state would not allow anybody that cannot continue the Six-Point Integral Action Plan of Governor Rauf Aregbesola to succeed him.

Speaking at a  programme tagged “Enroute Rauf” with a topic “A discourse on Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in the polity of the state of Osun”, Adeoti flayed critics of the governor, insisting that the governor has fulfilled his promise to the people of the state.

The programme was organised by friends and associates of the governor to tell the history of how Aregbesola came to Osun state.

Adeoti said: said “They should say whatever they like. Whoever wants to succeed Aregbesola must be ready to continue his six-point integral action plan.

“The policy laid down by Asiwaju Tinubu was sustained by Fashola and Ambode is building on it. That is why Lagos state is progressing.

“We are satisfied with the six-point integral action plan of Aregbesola and we would not allow anybody that is not ready to maintain and sustain the success achieved by the governor.”

In his address, the Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Prince Gboyega Famoodun, said there was a need to reply critics and clear some issues raised against  Aregbesola.

Tracing the history of how Aregbesola became governor in Osun state, Famoodun flayed those claiming to be behind the coming of Aregbesola to Osun state.

Though, Famoodun did not specifically mention name, it was obvious that he was reacting to an outburst of a chieftain of the APC, Alhaji Fatai Diekola, who said that Aregbesola would be sent back to Lagos where they brought him from.

Diekola said he brought Aregbesola to Osun and he would send him back to Lagos.

One of the discussant, Hon. Bola Ilori, who is the former Special Adviser on Environment, said he was instrumental to the coming of Aregbesola to Osun politics, saying that the struggle to become governor of Osun started with him Aregbesola and one Ajilore.

Aregbesola in his address, stated that the debt profile released by Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) was exaggerated.

He said the 165.9 billion debt as released by NEITI was nothing compared to the development Osun has witnessed in the last six years of his administration.

He however promised that he would complete all the ongoing project before the expiration of his tenure in November 2018.

Earlier the convener, Comrade Rasheed Raji said the programme was organised for friends and associates of the governor to tell the history of how Aregbesola came to Osun state.

Raji further explained that forum would afford Governor Aregbesola’s friends and political associates the opportunity to clear some issues raised against the Governor.
