…lauds Aregbesola’s deputy for supporting Oyetola reelection
Barely 48 hours after a former Osun Secretary to State Government, SSG and 2018 Action Democratic Party, ADP, Governorship candidate, Moshood Adeoti, obtained All Progressives Congress, APC governorship Nomination form, the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has charged the people of the town to vote for incumbent Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
The Iwo-born Adeoti had polled 49, 744 votes in the 2018 governorship election, winning just one Local Government.
Oluwo, who advised his subjects not to waste their resources and energy working against the re-election bid of the governor, said only those who are not interested in the growth and development of the town in particular and Osun State in general would want to run against Oyetola.
This is even as he singled out Osun ex-deputy governor during the administration of Rauf Aregbesola, Otunba Titi Laoye-Ponnle, for commendation for openly identifying with and supporting Governor Oyetola’s second-term bid.
The tour took the governor and his team to Iwo Federal Constituency comprising Iwo, Ayedire and Ola-Oluwa local governments, where members of the party all pledged their support for second term bid of the governor.
Addressing Oyetola, Oluwo said: “We (the Iwo Community) want to use this forthcoming Osun Governorship Election to pray to God. My father prayed by supporting the former Oluwo, Oba Tadese, and it worked for my emergence.
“Oyetola has done well; we are seeing good roads. The civil servants that were begging around before have stopped because the era of half Salary is long gone. He is paying full salary; civil servants are very important. I am not slandering anybody. Let us follow the one who knows the way. I want to commend the former deputy governor, Otunba Titilaoye, for staying with the truth.
“Iwo community cannot betray Governor Oyetola. I assure you that you will win your second term bid; you will come back as Governor-elect of this state by God’s grace. Anybody who comes against you shall be put to shame.”
He pleaded with the Governor to help the community with some bad portions of township roads, just as he commended him for the ones being done.
Earlier, Governor Oyetola had informed Oluwo that the party under the leadership of Prince Gboyega Famodun had obtained a form for him to vie for the second term in office and he has come for the monarch’s prayer before going to consult with the members of the party.
