Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has remembered what the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, told him in 2018 while giving Gboyega Oyetola to him as his successor.

The Minister spoke in Ijebu Ijesa, Osun State on Monday while speaking to APC supporters and stakeholders ahead of the party’s governorship primary.

He recommended that when Governor Oyetola reneged on his vows to be faithful and walk with him, the individual, who gave him (Oyetola) over to him didn’t call him to notice the shortfalls.

Aregbesola portrayed Oyetola as the most “useless and corrupt governor in the history of the state” vowing to guarantee he doesn’t get back to office for another four years.

Aregbesola, Osun State Governor from 2010 to 2018, and Oyetola, who is looking for reelection, have been in constant disagreement for some of the time over the control of APC organs in the state. The two politicians belong to the ruling APC.

Aregbesola has now pronounced support for former Secretary to the State Government, Moshood Adeoti, in Saturday’s governorship primary.

The minister likewise announced conflict against his erstwhile political mentors and partners who are supporting Oyetola for a return, including APC national leader, Bola Tinubu; and ex-Osun governor, Bisi Akande.

“With suffering, pains and perseverance, we nurtured this party to the stage it is – with sweat, tears, blood and even lost lives,” he said.

“After we served for eight years, it wasn’t only party members that benefitted from our administration, the entire state did. I went everywhere in Osun with projects.

“However, by the time my successor was handed over to me around May or July 2018, I was told, ‘Rauf, this is the ideal successor that would stand by you. He would further showcase your efforts. He would not betray you; he would not dim the light of your glory’.

“That was what the person, who handed him over to me said. If the person is listening to me, it would resonate with him, if he said so or not. But, did he do as he was vouched for?

“And when he reneged on these promises, did the person, who handed him over to me draw his attention to these failings? Anyway, isn’t the person the one we now see today?”
