In a statement in Lagos, the politician said that the governor deserved a second term because of the impressive performance of the governor in office.
Okesanjo stressed the need for continuity to enable the governor to complete his laudable projects that Aregbesola had surpassed him predecessors both in policy and development, adding that his re-election would consolidate the rapid transformation of socio-economic development of the state.
He added: “The challenge before the people of Osun State in the forthcoming election is more of pragmatism, which should clearly inform them on how best to use their votes to further enhance development collective well being. They should be forward-looking indeed which should therefore influence their political decisions.
And in a realistic sense, such appreciation of the issues should naturally guide their thoughts to vote en-mass for the re-election of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who has shown, without doubt that a good and able leadership can really alter the course of history in such significant ways through effective performance in office effectively, the election should be about issues that can improve on the socio-economic development of Osun State rather than those primordial sentiments bothering on religion or such mundane orchestrations by the opposition in the state.”
