Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) Elders’ Caucus, popularly known as ‘Igbimo Agba’, Mr. Sola Akinwumi has described, the Monday’s roadshow by the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola as a display of thuggery and hooliganism that is unbefitting of a personality like him.
Akinwumi, who made the statement while receiving Governor Gboyega Oyetola in his residence on Thursday, chastised the former governor for descending so low to engage in uncharitable public street show.
The party chieftain however commended Oyetola for his display of maturity and competence in handling the matter.
He called on aggrieved members to return to the party and stop being deceived by those who have nothing to offer them.
He noted that APC in Osun remains one and united family, saying anyone doing otherwise is just a joker of the century.
His words: “As a matter of fact, the erstwhile governor belittles himself and I am very sure he didn’t know the implications of what he did. He acted so low and naively as if he was the sitting governor.
“Was he telling us that there are two governors in the state? Has he forgotten that he is no longer a governor? Well, be it as it was, we have known his intention and we leave everyone to his or her conscience.
“I commend the way and manner our governor has been managing the circumstance over time. He has demonstrated patience, tolerance and integrity.
“All I have to tell our governor is to remain calm and unperturbed as we are solidly behind him for second term.”
