OPINION: Osun Just Loves Aregbesola By Bola Ilori

2015 Eid-Kabir 1bLove him or hate him, Aregbesola remains simply popular here in Osun! Come and see Osun people during yesterday Ileya salah! No doubt it’s trying times, yet Aregbesola is loved.

Despite desperate disparaging disinformation and outright defamation continually disseminated by despicable Osun PDPigs and their sympathisers, Osun people remains solidly with Ogbeni.

While Osun people were reading the story of attacks against some dignitaries during the Sallah prayers in another state, it was serious prayers and praises for Ogbeni Aregbesola in Osun. The shout of Omoluabi and Oranmiyan rent the air as Aregbesola drove round town. Many women, artisans, OKADA riders, youths and gaily dressed holiday makers showered praises and prayers on Ogbeni. The genuine wish of the people is that Ogbeni will succeed and complete all his ongoing projects.

While some media houses such as the Punch Newspapers (a beloved paper) and Tribune with many online publications copying rain abuses on the Governor daily, yet Aregbesola’s projects, passion and piety bound him with the real Osun people.

How truthful and nice will it be if Punch and Tribune headlines will capture the real feelings of Osun who yesterday massed out to show love for Ogbeni and not just only the view of haters.

May the prayers for Ogbeni by young and old for successful completion of projects be fulfilled.
