Some allies of the former governor of Osun state and Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, have accepted governor Adegboyega Oyetola and declared their support for him in the July 16 governorship election.
The splinter group who had presented former Secretary to the state government, Moshood Adeoti, as their governorship candidate, met at their monthly meeting held in Ejigbo and declared to support Oyetola.
A former speaker of the Osun House of Assembly, Najeem Salam, and a former member of the National Assembly, Senator Mudashiru Hussain, who attended the meeting of the splinter group, disclosed that governor Oyetola has made a move to reunite the aggrieved members and they are ready to cooperate with him.
Salam said “by my membership of the party, APC, there is no doubt of where I and my supporters will vote on the election day. So, it is clear that I will vote for my party.
“Wherever I am going is where my supporters going as far as Osun 2022 governorship election is concerned. Adegboyega Oyetola is an APC member and candidate of the party, so we will support our party.
“I listened to the comment of His Excellency on television a few days ago and he talked about the efforts been made to reconcile with those that are not on the same page with him to come to the party, reconciliation with the governor is still ongoing as to end all these crises within our party.
Also, Senator Hussain said, “APC has done so well in the state right from the time of Aregbesola who paved way for the party till this time of Adegboyega Oyetola who is following his footsteps.
“APC is unbeatable. I did not consider Ademola Adeleke of PDP as a threat to the victory of our party. We are a threat to them ahead of the Osun governorship election. We advise our members to remain calm and work for the party,” he added.
