The Secretary to the Government of Osun State, SSG, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, has declared intention to contest the September 22 governorship election in the state.
He made the official declaration at the Secretariat of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Osogbo, the state capital, on Thursday.
Adeoti who was the first aspirant to begin his campaign activities at the party Secretariat, declared that his patience does not mean that he fears anybody, vowing that his formal declaration would surprise his critics.
He noted that people have been abusing him that he does not have money to prosecute governorship election because he didn’t go out on time.
He explained that he was patience because the party has warned the aspirants not to go out until the party lift ban on political activities.
Speaking on his programmes, Adeoti said he has told Governor Rauf Aregbesola, that he would continue his six point integral action plan and correct those areas that need implementation.
“I told Ogbeni Aregbesola at a programme that he can not finish the six point integral action and I would be the Governor to continue the programmes. I have noticed where there is need for implementation and I would correct it.
“Because I obeyed the party when they said we should not go out, some people are saying Adeoti that can not print vest or cap. Is not that I fear anybody. I will go out on Tuesday and you will all see.
Recalling how he was jailed during the administration of Olagunsoye oyinlola, Adeoti said he has suffered in the party and now deserves to be Governor of the state.
Earlier, the party Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famoodun, described Adeoti as a politician that has seen all, having being the party Chairman during the era of Alliance for Democracy, AD.
He said he was not surprised by the crowd and support for Adeoti because he is a strong pillar in the party.
“Adeoti is a person that know the beginning of the party. He has been in the party since AD era before I joined during Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN.
“If it is money, Buhari would not have won, if they are talking about politician that knows what people want, it is Adeoti. He has patience and he love the party very well.
