Members of the newly registered All Progressives Congress, APC, in Cote D’Ivoire have publicly announced their resolve to return to Nigeria to cast their votes for the governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in the 2014 gubernatorial election.
Aregbesola’s spokesperson, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon who made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Osogbo yesterday quoted the APC, Cote d’ Ivoire chapter chairman, Akintomide Akinmade, to have said that the governor “is a caring leader that is always striving to serve the interest of the people.
“But for his intervention and timely evacuation of our people from Cote d’Ivoire back home in Nigeria, there would have casualties arising from people being caught up in the conflict.
“What Governor Aregbesola did was what we had expected President Goodluck Jonathan to do for Nigerians trapped in the country’s conflict. Governor Aregbesola is a good leader. The only way we can show gratitude to him is to come home next year and cast our votes for him.”
