Avoid actions that’ll cause chaos, Oyinlola counsels Aregbesola

 


A former governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has urged the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, to avoid acts that would suggest a sinister plot to make the state ungovernable for the incumbent governor, Adegboyega Oyetola.


Oyinlola said this in a statement, in Osogbo, on Wednesday. Oyinlola sued for peace amidst growing tension following plans by Aregbesola, himself a former governor of the state, to hold a political programme on the same day Oyetola, the incumbent Governor, will be celebrating his second anniversary slated for Friday, 27 November, 2020.



The statement read in part, “It is necessary that I put my own experience on record.  I took over from Chief Bisi Akande in May 2003 and, I can say that throughout my almost eight years in government, and despite our political differences, Akande never gave me any problem.


“It is common knowledge that Mr. Aregbesola took over from me, and, despite the circumstances of his coming to that office, I did not do anything to undermine his authority throughout his eight years in government.



“That is the spirit with which I appeal that the Interior Minister (Aregbesola) avoid doing anything that will suggest a plan to make the state ungovernable for Mr. Oyetola.


“As a former governor of that state, I plead that we give peace a chance. The state has witnessed enough unnecessary crises in recent weeks coupled with the Coronavirus pandemic which has upended people’s economy and general wellbeing. Our people are suffering; they deserve a respite from all forms of crises as they struggle to make ends meet.”
