Rauf Aregbesola – Osun State governor

The reason why I didn’t pick up the senatorial ticket is very simple. I have been active politically since my secondary school days.

I simply want to rest.

We have run a good race! We have fought a good fight! Posterity beckons. I have no bank account anywhere in the world.

I have not earned a dime in salary since I became governor and I do not intend to so do. The State feeds me, fuels my car and covers my other expenses. This is why I see no reason to earn a salary.

I have no house save the one I built before I became governor of Osun.
To answer the question of where I would be after handing over on the 27th of November, I would be moving to my house in Ilesha. I would be leaving the government house on the 19th of November but I would not be leaving the State capital of Osogbo.
Many at times, Encomium is showered on the person of the governor, without a mention of the deputy. I want to specially acknowledge Otunba Grace Titi Laoye Tomori for her unalloyed support over the last 8 years.
We got into power at the eleventh hour but that of the incoming governor has been one of ease. It’s a sign of things to come.

After I was sworn in, my next broadcast was addressed to our party members and the general public where I warned that anyone who took laws into their own hands in a bid to avenge the many wrongs done to them by the past administration would be dealt with

Gboyega Oyetola is a cool, calm and brilliant goal getter, but he is not a radical like me. He does not have my swagger but he is an extremely cerebral human being.
On the topic of Senator Iyiola Omisore working with the APC, I am neutral. I am completely indifferent.

To the glory of God, we have just won an election. There is no better way to demonstrate our political sagacity than that. It is extremely difficult to maintain our level of popularity over an 8 year period.
Take a survey and you will noticed that 40 percentage of the people are our core supporters
Rumors of a discord between myself and my successor are at best what you described them as; Rumors.

Atiku Wrote;

“Thank you very much my brothers and sisters of the North Central zone.
Today we have listened to the failures of the APC government since 2015 till today. There is nothing they have not promised us, they promised us security, jobs and better economy, they failed. Whatever they promised, they failed.
It is time to return Nigeria to PDP, because the best years of this country was when the PDP was governing our country from 1999-2015.
In terms of corruption, Nigeria is worse of today than we were in 2014. In terms of economy, we are the poorest country in the world today. In terms of insecurity, we are most insecure than at any other time in our history
This is what the APC are doing. They are buying PVCs, they will come to you and give you N10, N20, N50 to buy your PVC – they are buying your future. Do you want to sell your future? Don’t sell your PVCs because they are going to use it against you.
God bless you all. Thank you.”

A Twitter user, @ifeabunike wrote,

What Father Mbaka did to Peter Obi at the alter of God and in God’s name was disgraceful and should be condemned by all well meaning Christians. If this was what Christ stood for, I don’t want to be a part of it anymore.

Reno Omokri took the liberty to voice his opinion, he wrote.

Fr Mbaka disgraces  @PeterObi for refusing to donate to his church. That is exactly why you should vote for @atiku and Peter Obi. They wont donate public money to churches and mosques. Has @officialEFCC ever looked for Peter Obi? These are the types of leaders we need! #RenosDarts
