The Osun State governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, on Sunday vouched for the competence of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the September 22 Osun governorship election, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola, to succeed him.
He assured that he would consolidate on the achievements of his administration.
At a rally of the IleriOluwa Campaign Organization in Iperindo, the headquarters of Atakumosa East council area and Ijebu-Jesa, the headquarters of Oriade Local Government, Aregbesola further assured that he had no doubt that Oyetola would perform to expectation of the people of the state.
According to him, some of his celebrated programmes, including the school feeding initiative tagged O’MEAL, the youth empowerment initiative known as the Osun Youth Empowerment Scheme (OYES) would be sustained.
He rallied support for the APC candidate, saying votes for Oyetola would further stand Osun out as one of the performing states.
Aregbesola, who warned the residents of Osun not to allow the state to retrogress, advised the people to vote for Oyetola and “sound future of the state.”
Speaking, Oyetola assured he would advance the fortune of the state, saying “A good foundation” had been laid by the Rauf Aregbesola administration and that he was prepared to consolidate and break new grounds.
Oyetola said: “My words are my bonds. I have the competence, the integrity and the pedigree. I will run an all-inclusive government. Workers would enjoy the best of time in my tenure. I believe the time has come for all us to come together and ensure the best government is installed for all us to reap the fruits of our labour. Together we can promote good governance when we vote for the competent, experienced and more importantly some one that we lead the state with fear of God.”
Many trooped out to show solidarity for the APC candidate and his campaign team in the two council areas.
