Massive Turnout As Aregbesola Rallies Votes For Oyetola In Ile-Ife



The first in the series of mega rallies to rally support for the Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC in the September 22 Governorship Election, Gboyega Oyetola witnessed an unprecedented crowd of party loyalists and supporters who thronged the Technical College School, Ifewara who welcomed the entourage led by Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

The carnival-like event saw party members engage in broom waving, singing, dancing, drumming and trumpeting with live bands stationed at major junctions in the ancient town to thrill residents.

While addressing the mammoth crowd, the former deputy governor, Prince Sooko Adewoyin described the APC as the party which people of Ife love so dearly, adding that Oyetola is the only candidate who will live up to expectation and fulfill all promises to the people of Osun.

The Governor of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola said that the election is neither about him or about Oyetola alone, but about APC and the future of the state which also points to 2019 general election that must not be toyed with.

According to him, “We must do everything within the armpit of power to mobilize and canvass our people in the markets, churches, mosques, on the streets and I believe that God is on our side. This is a party of truth, integrity and progress and all of us will be beneficiaries of dividends of the APC led government.”

Addressing the mammoth crowd, the APC governorship candidate, Alh Gboyega Oyetola expressed gratitude to the people of the town for their massive support and solidarity, urging them to come out in their thousands and vote for the APC for the good works to continue in the state of Osun.

He therefore enjoined all members, supporters and sympathizers of the party to go and collect their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) so that none of them will be disenfranchised during the voting process.

Oyetola also promised to continue where the government of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola stops, so that the people of Osun will as a matter of fact, enjoy all the deserved dividends of democracy.

The Chairman of the APC in Osun State, Prince Adegboyega Famoodun urged party members and supporters to mobilize and cast their votes for the All Progressives Congress while all arrangements have been made to make the door-to-door campaign easier in every ward and polling units.

He therefore appealed to all political leaders to start voter education in their respective areas so that our votes will not be void.
