Aregbesola Lists Reasons For Seeking Re-election


Osun State governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, on Saturday, said the need to complete capital projects embarked on by his administration informed his interest for a second term in office.

He contended that “ It was imperative to ensure that there was no break in the infrastructural turnaround and massive transformation of the state through roads construction and other  developmental programmes”.

Aregbesola made this known at Ijebu-jesa, Oriade Local Government Area of the State, during the 12th edition of “Osun Walk-To-Live programme.

Addressing a mammoth crowd that trooped out to participate in the trekking exercise from Ilesa to Ijebu-jesa, he asserted that “We crave for the support and your outing to excel in the next year election. All those that want to cause crisis in state, God would not allow them, so that we can complete all the initiated projects”.

While praying for peace and God’s favour during the 2014 governorship poll, Aregbesola said “God should contain the activities of desperate politicians planning to disrupt the election through violence”.

Said he, “Today’s walk to live is not a political campaign. Healthy living is crucial to human existence. This is how we can raise the awareness of our people to the importance of healthy living. Major cause of diseases is lack of exercise. Let us take cleanliness very serious. Our environment and residences should be clean to sustain a healthy society”, he said.
