When the struggle for the second term bid of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola started, a lot of lies were fabricated to ensure he is hated by those who are hitherto in love with him and his good work in the State of Osun. They called him names, They put a toga of terrorism on him all in a bid to make him loose his support base.
The Obanikoro’s with his control of the army, the Buruji Kashamu’s with his drug money; Jelili Adesiyan ably supported by the IGP deployed over 75000 police force; the DSS with arrays of hooded cops in a show of strength and other security apparatus with the sole aim of removing Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola from Office as the Governor. The brutalisation of known supporters of Rauf and APC using the federal might to silence them to submission.
Tempers were high, people were more than determined to ensure their vote counts despite PDP shenanigans. People waited anxiously to know who carried the day. Rauf was declared winner of the election. It was like a dream to all and sundry. However, Osun PDP is still wallowing in such delusion.
For us in the State of Osun, the hour of glory is here with us. Triumph of good over evil. Rauf is wearing a crown of glory once again in our dear state. I congratulate the good people of Osun for making this possible. We earnestly pray for abundant blessing, development and prosperity in the second term of our dear Governor. Ride on Rauf, we are solidly behind you.
