    By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo
    Minister of Interior, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola has pronounced the former Secretary to Osun State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, as the next governor of the state.
    Addressing party faithful and stakeholders in the state ahead of the party’s primaries on Monday in Ijebu Ijesa, Aregbesola appealed to members of the party not to be disturbed by what is happening but to work in unison for the success of Adeoti in Saturday’s governorship primaries of the party.
    The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election is scheduled for Saturday, February 19, 2022.
    The immediate past governor of the state stated that the party is back in the hands of true progressives who will work assiduously to win in the July 16 governorship election in the state.
    He said that the present administration in Osun has deviated from the true tenets of APC.
    He also stated that those at the helms of affairs have jettisoned true democracy and the principles which the party and its heroes stand for.
    His words: “Anyone who was with us when we started the journey to reclaim Osun for the progressives in 2004 would know we fought very hard for this victory we have today.
    “We went through several challenges then but through thick and thin, we were able to succeed. This time around, we will succeed.
    “We are ready to allow a free flow of democratic process to interplay here. We are not those who play God. We are resolute about reclaiming our party from those who think they can continue to abuse our legacies or even want us to be second fiddles in the party we worked and laboured for. This is our pride and we will sustain it.
    “Let me tell you that God is with us. I urge all of our supporters to come all out and back us. Do not have any fears. We are the authentic APC in Osun.
    “If in Lagos, the governor did not do well and the party decided not to return him for a second term, why can’t it be so in Osun? They know what they have done to us is bad and they want to continue the impunity. We will not accept it.
    “Do not be disturbed by their threats. Come out en-masse and vote for our aspirant. In Shaa Allah, Adeoti is the next governor of Osun. We should all support him.”
    In his remarks, Adeoti expressed his gratitude to the party for the support.
    He promised not to disappoint the party and ensure that the legacies of the progressive government from November 27, 2010 to November 27, 2018 is sustained and built on for the progress of the state.
    Others at the occasion were the faction Chairman of the party in the state, Alhaji Razaq Salinsile; former Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, Najeem Salaam; Chairman of The Osun Progressives (TOP), Rev’d Lowo Adebiyi, Ward, Local Government and State Excos who emerged at the last congress of the faction.
