Former Governor of Osun State and Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has dropped a bombshell.
He said; “It will be difficult for those who lack my pedigree to displace me in the party in the state. Since my emergence in Osun on the Oranmiyan platform 17 years ago, and with others, we fought the agents of darkness and regression and firmly consolidated the party in the state.”
“This effort has produced two successive progressive administrations in the state and also won presidential and national legislative elections thrice.”
“It is part of the democratic process for all kinds of people, especially from the PDP and other parties, even those with questionable and unedifying past, to cross into the progressive, people-centered party.”
“However members have a moral duty to ensure that such elements do not occupy leadership positions and use it to subvert and derail the party. We must take into cognisance the concept of internal democracy in the party.”
“You all remember that our leader, late Chief Bola Ige led all his life for a compassionate government, commitment to the good of the majority and ideas that would bring the good life, happiness, progress and security to the people.”
“You must be conscious of those who continue to dance on Ige’s grave and avoid anything that would dishonour the late stateman’s memory.”
“I will continue to work towards greater success of the party and I remain more committed to progressive ideals.”
