Oyetola Won The Election By 222,169 Votes But Aregbesola Went To Court With Adeoti - According to Osun APC

The APC chapter in Osun State has called former Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola a liar and denied any violation of the power-sharing agreement in response to his accusations of betrayal. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

Chairman Tajudeen Lawal revealed that President Bola Tinubu was present for the sole meeting, which was held in December 2020 at Bisi Akande’s home. Lawal highlighted that Aregbesola’s agreement gave Adegboyega Oyetola automatic admission and autonomy in governance. Aregbesola, however, is accused of breaking this agreement by endorsing other candidates for the gubernatorial race, pursuing numerous legal actions against Oyetola, and backing Moshood Adeoti during the primary.

According to Vanguard, Lawal criticized Aregbesola’s alleged anti-party activities and questioned the delay in addressing their petitions by the national leadership. The APC accused Aregbesola of contributing to the party’s loss in the governorship election due to support from the PDP and alleged interference through the Civil Defence.

Regarding Aregbesola’s claim of three years of reconciliation efforts, the APC questioned the timeline, pointing to Aregbesola’s actions, including the creation of TOP and other controversies. Lawal concluded by cautioning APC members to be vigilant, stating that Aregbesola’s intentions might not be in the party’s best interest.

The statement partly reads: “But during the primaries, Aregbesola sponsored Moshood Adeoti against Oyetola contrary to the agreement reached. Oyetola won the election by 222,169 votes against Adeoti’s 12,921 votes. The same Aregbesola went to court with Adeoti to challenge the outcome of the primary. He also sponsored 10 different cases in various courts to challenge the nomination of Oyetola as the candidate of the APC.”

“Before then, he held a parallel congress and pushed unsuccessfully to have a validly elected chairman of the party replaced with his factional chairman.”

“As if that was not enough, Aregbesola went ahead to sponsor three different candidates against Oyetola in the governorship election. So, who betrayed each other? You be the judge.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
