The Chairman, Osun APC Elders’ Caucus popularly known as ‘Igbimo Agba’, Engr. Sola Akinwumi, has lambasted the immediate past Governor of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, for ‘descending so low to engage in uncharitable public street show.
Akinwumi condemned the act in its totality, describing it a display of thuggery and hooliganism that is unbefitting of a personality like Aregbesola.
The APC chieftain made the statement while receiving Governor Adegboyega Oyetola in his residence on Thursday.
Former Governor Rauf Aregbesola, now Interior Minister, had on Monday paraded some streets in Osogbo in a motorcade with a former Secretary to the State Government and factional ‘anointed aspirant’ of the ‘The Osun Progressives’ (TOP), a group within the All Progressives Congress (APC), Moshood Adeoti.
Engr. Akinwumi, who lampooned the erstwhile Governor for acting like a baby politician, commended Governor Oyetola for his display of maturity and competence in handling the matter.
The party elderstateman called on the aggrieved members of the ruling party to return to the party and stop being deceived by those who have nothing to offer them.
He noted that the APC remains one and united family in the State, saying anyone doing otherwise is just a joker of the century.
The party leader bemoaned what he described as irrational and illogical the claim that the party was factionalized in the State, adding that all the party structures and its leadership are with the Governor who by the party’s Constitution is the overall leader of the party.
“As a matter of fact, the erstwhile Governor belittles himself and I am very sure he didn’t know the implications of what he did. He acted so low and naively as if he was the sitting Governor.
“Was he telling us that there are two Governors in the State? Has he forgetten that he was no longer a Governor? Well be it as it was, we have known his intention and we leave everyone to his or her conscience.
“I commend the way and manner our Governor has been managing the circumstance over time. He has demonstrated patience, tolerance and integrity.
“All I have to tell our Governor is to remain calm and unperturbed as we are solidly behind him for second term”, Akinwumi said.
