Former governor of Osun State and interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, has, gifted Governor Adegboyega Oyetola a horse which he said, he should ride to power.
Oyetola had after his strategic engagement tour of Ila Federal Constituency, visited Baba Akande at his residence in Ila.
The tour is a statewide consultation to the nine Federal Constituencies in state which the governor is using to fraternise with the newly elected APC executives at the wards and local government levels.
The tour is also meant to inform party members of his intention to participate in the forthcoming primaries in preparation for the July governorship election.
The presentation of the horse to Oyetola by Chief Akande was highly symbolic and seen as a declaration of an unalloyed support for the person and candidature of the governor.
According to political pundits, horse symbolises strength, power, freedom, triumph, heroism, nobleness, stamina, tireless, confidence and intelligence. It is also a precious gift of life and highly celebrated animal.
Although, it is used for different purposes, what is constant, according to political pundits is that it is used as a ride to celebrate good things.
While accepting the gift, Governor Oyetola who was obviously surprised and excited with smiles on his face said “thank you very much.”
